Benjamin Hindman

Benjamin Hindman is one of the creators of Apache Mesos. He began working on the project as a PhD student at UC Berkeley, and it followed him to Twitter where he is currently employed. Mesos now runs on thousands of machines at Twitter, Airbnb, etc. -- even when Ben is away skiing in Tahoe or surfing in Santa Cruz. An academic at heart, Ben's research in the areas of programming languages and distributed systems has been published in leading academic conferences. Ben has spoken about his research, Mesos, and his libprocess and stout libraries at numerous conferences and companies. He most recently spoke at FutureStack in SF and the Hadoop Summit Asia in Beijing.
