I'm writing a book for O'Reilly, called Designing Data-Intensive Applications.
I'm Martin Kleppmann, software engineer, entrepreneur, author and speaker. I co-founded Rapportive (acquired by LinkedIn in 2012) and Go Test It (acquired by Red Gate Software in 2009). At the moment I'm taking a sabbatical to write a book for O'Reilly, called Designing Data-Intensive Applications.
I care about making stuff that people want, great people, a culture of respect and empathy, clarity of thinking, marvellous user experiences, maintainable code and scalable architectures.
I'd love to hear from you, so please leave comments, or feel free to contact me directly.
