Rob Harrop is CEO at Skipjaq, where he leads a team working on the cutting edge of machine-driven performance optimization. When he’s not thinking about how best to tune the myriad workloads encountered by Skipjaq customers, he’s thinking hard about how to pass the optimization burden on to machines that learn. Rob is well known as a cofounder of SpringSource, the software company behind the wildly successful Spring Framework. At SpringSource, he was a core contributor to the Spring Framework and led the team that built dm Server (now Eclipse Virgo). Prior to SpringSource, Rob was (at the age of 19) cofounder and CTO at Cake Solutions, a boutique consultancy in Manchester, UK. A respected author, speaker, and teacher, Rob writes and talks frequently about large-scale systems, cloud architecture, and functional programming. His published works include the highly popular Spring Framework reference Pro Spring.
