Watch Grace Jansen's JAX session

Reacting to the Future of Application Architecture

JAXenter Editorial Team

In this session from JAX, watch IBM developer advocate Grace Jansen discuss how we take a page from honeybees. These little insects can actually teach us about how to build better architecture and more reactive software solutions with the help of reactive architecture frameworks.

Since it was International Women’s Day yesterday, here’s a video of a JAX talk given by Grace Jansen, who we’ve also featured in our long-running Women in Tech series.

Ever wondered how honeybees have come to be some of the world’s most efficient architects? Learn how we can all use mother nature’s expertise to better architect our software solutions to be more reactive, responsive and resilient through reactive architecture frameworks.


architectureGrace Jansen is a developer advocate at IBM, working with Open Liberty and Reactive Platform. She has now been with IBM for a year, after graduating from Exeter University with a Degree in Biology. Moving to software engineering has been a challenging step for Grace, but she enjoys bringing a varied perspective to her projects and using her knowledge of biological systems to simplify complex software patterns and architectures. As a developer advocate, Grace builds POC’s, demos and sample applications, and writes guides and tutorials to help guide users through technologies and products. Grace also has a keen passion for encouraging more women into STEM and especially Technology careers.
