The world needs a new way of building software applications

We believe the future of application development will embrace profound changes in expectation driven by experiences in our daily lives. Our phones are smart, our cars are getting smarter, and our applications are connecting us with people all over the world. Our appetite for immediacy is never satisfied. We expect to be connected continuously. We expect our applications to deliver whatever we need—instantly.

These expectations are fueling a new class of Reactive application that is:

  • Responsive—rich and engaging, providing instant feedback based on user interactions.
  • Resilient—recovering and repairing itself automatically for seamless business continuity.
  • Elastic—on-demand, across cores, nodes, and clusters; scaling predictably and elastically.
  • Message Driven—processing messages in parallel, asynchronously, without blocking.

More and more, companies across industries and around the globe are embracing the business imperative of going Reactive, and they are turning to Typesafe for help.

Typesafe is delivering the world’s leading Reactive platform

Typesafe is dedicated to helping developers build Reactive applications on the JVM. With the Typesafe Reactive Platform, including Play Framework, Akka, and Scala, developers can deliver highly responsive user experiences backed by a resilient and message driven application stack that scales effortlessly on multicore and cloud computing architectures.

Dedicated to developers

To make going Reactive easier for developers, we created Typesafe Activator, a browser-based tool with reusable templates and in-context training to jump-start Reactive application development.

We also offer training and consulting services in conjunction with partners when developers are ready to dive deeper and commercial support and maintenance to mitigate risk when applications launch in production.

Committed to communities

The creators of the Scala programming language and Akka runtime believed that by joining forces they could provide developers around the world with a better way of building software applications. In 2011, Martin Odersky and Jonas Bonér teamed up to found Typesafe. Today, Typesafe is committed to many open source communities—actively contributing innovations, managing projects, and assisting members—as well as giving back to the communities in our own backyards.

Shaping an industry

Extending beyond our communities, Typesafe spearheaded the Reactive Manifesto to define a common vocabulary—both in terms of business values and technical concepts—to make it easier for developers, users, businesses, and vendors to discuss, collaborate, and innovate around this new class of applications.

Together, we’re bringing Reactive applications to the world.
