Akka in Action(Link)

April 2013

Introducing Akka with its Actor Programming model and its advanced support for concurrency and fault tolerance.



Readmissions Predictor for Blue Cross

Developed an application that predicted which patients would be most likely to readmit to the hospital. Using bayesian inference, the application trained on 10 years of data and then computed scores for the whole half million member base. The technology used was Java EE 6 with CDI.


Startup in the government space. Product vision is to give users tools for finding opportunities faster. As users review opportunities and flag some as interesting and others as not, the system learns. As new opportunities arrive, the probability of being of interest is computed.

The application was focused initially only on contracts. Support for Grants was added. A complete commerce implementation was done, making allowing the application to be a self-sufficient, multi-tenant SaaS application hosted in the cloud.

Technology used: Java EE 5 with Seam, JPA, JSF and Lucene.
