Kalele is pleased to announce Kenny Bastani as a welcome addition to the Kalele and vlingo/PLATFORM teams, as leading providers of Domain-Driven Design and Reactive software development expertise and tools.
“We continue to build our team with the right talent to model the future in software development. We want our team members, clients, and partners to see themselves in this future, and we are relentless in making this reality,” said Jamie Faller, CEO of Kalele. She added, “Identifying and enhancing the business, technical, and social skills of our already strong team are vital elements in our leadership initiative. We consider Kenny a core leader among us.”
Vaughn Vernon, Founder and Chief Architect of the vlingo/PLATFORM remarked, “as a leading member of our Kalele and open source platform teams, Kenny will be instrumental in Reactive architecture and development. He will also help build on our training and consulting initiatives. As we continue to introduce new methods for successful software development outcomes, I am confident of the positive impact that Kenny will continue to have on the software industry as a key innovator in our shared vision.”
Kenny has more than 15 years of experience building software and has spent much of the last decade as an open source contributor, author, and international conference speaker. In 2013, Kenny began pioneering work in the graph processing space, integrating the first graph database, Neo4j, with the first distributed graph processing engine, Apache Spark GraphX, via an open source project he launched named Neo4j Mazerunner. In 2015, Kenny presented Big Graph Analytics on Neo4j with Apache Spark at O’Reilly’s annual OSCON open source convention. His advocacy for graph processing and graph analytics acted as the inspiration for the Neo4j Graph Algorithms Library that was later launched in 2017.
In 2015, Kenny joined Pivotal as a Spring Developer Advocate, and later served as the Application Architecture CTO. While at Pivotal, Kenny did ground-breaking work as an advocate of microservices and cloud native architectures implemented in Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. Since, Kenny has implemented several open source projects and written blog posts that provide realistic implementation examples that show how to adopt microservices at different stages of software development. From 2015 to 2019, Spring Boot has become one of the most popular open source projects for implementing microservices on the JVM, with tens of millions of monthly downloads.
Kenny is co-author of O’Reilly’s “Cloud Native Java: Designing Resilient Systems with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry.”

Today Kalele released its developer support program for the vlingo/PLATFORM. There is a sliding scale of options that address the specific needs of individual developers and teams.
Vaughn Vernon, Founder and Chief Architect of the vlingo/PLATFORM expressioned our vision: “We are deeply aware of and concerned for the need to support all kinds of development efforts. This spans all the way from individual entrepreneurs and small teams bootstrapping their vision, to Fortune companies with large numbers of developers and ongoing and more frequent support needs.” He added, “In terms of vision, it’s been mine all along to consider the unique needs of a broad range in the software industry and not overlook the efforts with lean financial resources.”
Kenny Bastani, Developer Advocate for the vlingo/PLATFORM, commented on the sliding scale and support expectations: “The SLA on the number of hours before support or a resolution is provided as worse-case only. We intend to reply as soon as possible. The different levels are there only to ensure that the higher tiers are assured of timeframe.”
Kalele is offering introductory developer support in three levels: Level 1, at $75/month or $500/year for a 72-hour maximum SLA; Level 2, priced at $1000/year with a 48-hour maximum SLA; Level 3, offered at $2800 for a 24 hour maximum SLA, along with priority code patching. Additionally, Levels 2 and 3 also include a fixed number of monthly sessions with top-tier vlingo/PLATFORM developers. Kalele offers other configurable support packages, for example reflecting the needs of larger teams, which require contact with sales.
