Matthew O’Riordan is originally from South Africa. He left school and sort of fell into engineering, cause he just loved it. In fact, the craft brought him to the UK, where he saw more opportunity. Outside of tech, he likes adrenaline sports. He was a competitively skydiver, participating in free style routines, free-fly and vertical formation. He pointed out that it’s a great way to clear your head, cause you can’t think about anything else when you’re skydiving.
Matt unearthed interesting things as he was building prototype after prototype to solve real time experiences. He wanted to build a new generation of real time communication developer tools, that provide collaboration opportunity… and that just work.
This is the creation story of Ably.
