Website | @FrancescoC

Francesco Cesarini is the founder and CTO of Erlang Training and Consulting. He has used Erlang on a daily basis for almost 15 years, having started his career as an intern at Ericsson’s computer science laboratory, the birthplace of Erlang. He moved on to Ericsson’s Erlang training and consulting arm working on the first release of OTP, applying it to turnkey solutions and flagship telecom applications. In 1999, soon after Erlang was released as open source, he founded Erlang Training and Consulting. With offices in the UK, Sweden, Poland (and soon the US), they have become the world leaders in Erlang based consulting, contracting, training and systems development. Francesco has worked in major Erlang based projects both within and outside Ericsson, and in his role as CTO, is currently leading the development and consulting teams at ETC. He is also the co-author of Practical Erlang Programming, a book soon to be published by O’Reilly.
