Case Study: Nitro Moves Desktop Apps to the Cloud with Typesafe Reactive Platform
Our newest case study is with Nitro, a company whose software make it easy to create, edit, share, sign and collaborate with documents—online or offline. In our recent interview, Nitro's VP of Technology, Tihomir Bajic, outlines the importance of Play, Akka and Scala to the company’s product delivery evolution during their recent years of explosive growth. Back in 2011, Nitro had millions of users and a massive code base of C++ for desktop apps for document processing and workflows. Nitro’s desktop products were supported by .NET.
As Nitro made the move to the cloud, Bajic and his team transitioned over the Play, Akka and Scala to build a fully reactive system. Typesafe technologies enabled Nitro to increase responsiveness and improve customer experience, attract top engineering talent, and maximize productivity. Check out the full case study here.
