Biography: Francesco Cesarini
Francesco Cesarini is an Erlang evangelist, having used the language on a daily basis for the last 15 years. He started his career as an intern at Ericsson's computer science lab, the birth place of Erlang, and went on to work with flagship Erlang projects both within and outside of Ericsson, including the R1 release of the OTP middleware and the AXD301 Switch. He has taught Erlang/OTP to hundreds of professionals and undergraduate students alike, using those experiences when co-authoring Erlang Programming, a book published by O'Reilly Media.
Soon after Erlang was released as Open Source, he founded Erlang Solutions (formerly known as Training and Consulting). With offices in the UK, Sweden, Poland (and soon the US), they have become the world leaders in Erlang based professional services, including consulting, contracting, support, systems development, certification and training. Their client base is spread on five continents and ranges from small start-ups to blue chip companies. In his role as CSO, he is currently leading the expansion of the company into new markets and product lines.
He is active in the Erlang community not only through regularly talks, seminars and tutorials at conferences worldwide, but also through his involvement in international research projects. He organises local Erlang user groups and with the help of his colleagues and runs the Trapexit Erlang community website.
