Typesafe Welcomes Lee Mighdoll of Nest Labs to Advisory Board

Today we're very excited to welcome Lee Mighdoll of Nest Labs as a Typesafe advisor.

Lee started the online service organization at Nest Labs, maker of the Nest thermostat.  Prior to Nest, Lee has served in executive and engineering leadership roles at Apple, Twitter, General Magic, ObjectSpeed and WebTV, and has advised a variety of startups.  Lee's current interests are in scalable reliable distributed systems, sensor networks, big data, and machine learning.

At Typesafe, we help companies like Nest build scalable and reliable software, and having Lee on our advisory team will ensure that we continue to fulfill that mission. As we continue to see rapid adoption within other organizations, like Juniper, Twitter, LinkedIn, UBS, the Guardian and more, we're fortunate to have Lee provide insight and guidance.

Welcome, Lee! Happy to have you on board.
