Francesco Cesarini

Biography: Francesco Cesarini

Francesco Cesarini is the founder and Technical Director of Erlang Solutions. He has used Erlang on a daily basis for almost 15 years, starting 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 Solutions, who 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 as Technical Director, is currently leading the development and consulting teams at Erlang Solutions. He is also the co-author of Practical Erlang Programming, a book published by O'Reilly and still finds time to teach at Oxford University and the IT University of Gothenburg.

Presentation: OTP, the Middleware for Concurrent, Distributed & Scalable Architectures

Track: Bring your own Language / Time: Tuesday 13:20 - 14:10 / Location: Veilingzaal

A programming language is not enough to build massively scalable fault tolerant cloud based solutions. Middleware in the form of reusable libraries, release, debugging and maintenance tools together with design principles and patterns used to style your concurrency model and your architecture is a must.

In this talk, Francesco will introduce the building blocks that form OTP, the defacto middleware that ships with the Erlang/OTP distribution. He will cover OTP’s design principles, describing how they provide software engineering guidelines that enable developers to structure systems in a scalable and fault tolerant way, without the need to reinvent the wheel while hiding the tricky parts of concurrent programming.

Talk objectives: Introduce a powerful framework which reduces errors and helps developers achieve robustness and fault tolerance without affecting time to market.
Target audience: This talk is relevant to engineers and architects implementing scalable, massively concurrent and fault tolerant server side software in any language, not just Erlang.
