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

consulting teams at ETC. He is also the co-author of Practical Erlang 
Programming, a book soon to be published.

Francesco Cesarini will be presenting the concurrent soft real time
