Alexander Reelsen is a software engineer living in Munich, Germany, where he has been working on different software systems, for example a touristic booking engine, a campaign management and messaging platform and a b2b ecommerce portal. He has been using the play framework since 2009 and was immediately astonished by the sheer simplicity of this framework, while still being pure java. Other interests include scaling shared-nothing web architectures and nosql databases.

Being rather a system engineer most of the time when he started playing around with Linux at the age of 14, Alexander got to know software engineering during his studies and decided web applications are more interesting than system administration.

If not doing something hacky, he enjoys playing a good game of basketball or streetball.
Sometimes he even twitters at and can be reached anytime at
