Co-founder and CTO, Phusion
Hongli Lai is the co-founder and CTO of Phusion, a company that specializes in offering top of the line IT products and services to high profile clients.
Prior to founding Phusion, he has had the pleasure of working on a myriad of open source products such as Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and Autopackage, where it’s perhaps worth mentioning that the latter is being used by the Dutch Tax Department.
From his computer science study and work, Hongli has also become well versed in a variety of computer languages and paradigms and also possesses an (almost) uncontrollable hunger for knowledge. In particular, his current interests lie in the domain of Software Engineering, where the emphasis is put on software architecture.
