Mick Semb Wever works at The Last Pickle, helping customers around the world deliver and improve Apache Cassandra based solutions. With 19 years software engineering behind him, from robotic kinematics, reverse modelling in geo sciences, computer graphics languages, federated search engines, to at-scale event-driven designs, Mick has done his time in the trenches. And is now an advocate for change towards Microservices that are built upon modern data-driven practices introducing eventually-consistent highly-available solutions reliant upon Apache technologies like Cassandra, Hadoop, Spark, and Kafka.

He's always had a keen involvement in open source code, contributing to codebases along the way, and now relishes opportunities to speak at conferences and meetups, like JavaZone and the Cassandra Summit, where ever he travels. He is an Apache Member, an Apache Cassandra committer, the PMC Chair for Apache Tiles, as well as being a DataStax MVP for Apache Cassandra since 2014.
