Hongli Lai
Co-founder and CTO, Phusion


Hongli Lai is the co-founder and CTO of "Phusion ":http://www.phusion.nl, a
company that specializes in offering top of the line IT products and
services to high profile clients.

Prior to founding Phusion, he has had the pleasure of working on a
myriad of open source products such as Ruby, Ruby on Rails and
Autopackage, where it’s perhaps worth mentioning that the latter is
being used by the Dutch Tax Department.

From his computer science study and work, Hongli has also become well
versed in a variety of computer languages and paradigms and also
possesses over an (almost) uncontrollable hunger for knowledge. In
particular, his current interests lie at the domain of Software
Engineering where the emphasis is put on software architecture.
