In a move to transform higher education for both students and educators, Chris Cox launched BeamStream, a collegiate social collaboration network. The BeamStream platform is designed so students can easily find and interact with professors, making users more productive, organized and connected to the resources they need out of the classroom.

Cox realized early on that picking the right platform and toolset for his innovative new product was critical, and after doing his homework, he settled on Scala, Akka and Play. In our newest case study, Cox explains how he built BeamStream with Typesafe technologies, emphasizing how the importance of performance and scale factored into the decision making process.
