We had to replace a key component in our system and brought Manuel in to introduce us to Akka. We had already been looking closely at a different solution, but Manuel’s prototype quickly convinced us that Akka would be the best choice for us.

Manuel used three connected Raspberry Pi computers to demonstrate how lightweight and fast the Akka toolkit is. He then got our team up-to-speed on the technology and supported us while we developed and successfully implemented our new system with Akka. In this critical process, his expertise with distributed systems was invaluable to us.
