Alexander Reelsen is a software engineer living in Munich, Germany, where he has been working on different software systems such as a touristic booking engine, campaign management, and messaging platform, and a B2B e-commerce portal. He began using the Play Framework in 2009, and was immediately astonished by the sheer simplicity of this framework, while still dealing with pure Java. Other interests include scaling shared-nothing web architectures and NoSQL databases.
