I’ve been involved in ‘Internet Stuff’ since Day Zero (remember Gopher?), and am currently building out the Erlang based infrastructure for all of Ubiquiti’s cloud services. You can find out more here

I have the – dubious – honor of being involved in creating the first web/e-commerce system, the first java based financial service, as well as the first erlang based cloud PBX, three projects I may never live down.

I have a Bachelor’s degree is from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and a Masters from the University of Notre Dame.

Finite State Machines are rarely used, and virtually always dismissed as "too complex" . This is a tragedy since FSMs aren't just about Door Locks, but are invaluable in defining _any_ communication protocols. This talk will provide a crash course in FSMs using erlang's "gen_fsm" behavior as a template, hopefully leaving you with a better appreciation of its uses. Read more.
