Tyler Griffiths is a software developer at Digicert where he builds asynchronous microservices using Java, Spring, Cassandra and Kafka. He holds both a Bachelor of Computer Science and an MBA. He loves all things that run on the JVM from Java to Grails and everything in between. When he's not building ridiculously scalable Java microservices, you can find him building bike jumps for his three boys, doing honey-dos for his beautiful wife and playing golf, usually in that order. When inspiration strikes him with a backhanded blow he records it on his blog at bitglimpse.com and Twitter at @bitglimpse.
