This is the second interview in a regular series of interviews with stalwarts of the technology industry. This week we have Tim Fox, the Vert.x project lead who was formerly behind RabbitMQ and other well known Java based messaging frameworks.

In this interview you can find out about Tim’s contributions, his history with traditional messaging systems, motivations behind Vert.x and some deep dive details about this exciting new paradigm/framework!

Disclaimer - we use Vert.x ourselves at jClarity and think it's pretty awesome :-)
