We build and maintain the Akka message-driven runtime, Play web framework, Lagom Microservices framework, and Scala programming language, and we contribute to Apache Spark. Our mission is to help developers build high-performance applications that are message-driven, elastic, resilient and responsive. We created the Lightbend Reactive Platform to make it easy to build software applications that are massively distributed and reduce the headaches and risks associated with managing Microservice-based apps in production.
