|TBD: BE INQUISITIVE, SHARE AND INSPIRE
by Sam Aaron, Jeremy Ruston & Robert Virding
In many conversations and talks given after the late Joe Armstrong retired, he rarely talked about Erlang, and instead focused on the different expressions of the ideas that had driven it: models of concurrency based on the realities of physics, the importance of self contained code and applications, and perhaps most important of all, the importance of designing by prototyping.
For this special keynote, one of Erlang’s co-inventors and the creators of Sonic Pi and TiddlyWiki reflect on what they have learned while collaborating with Joe.

THE SPEAKER - ROBERT VIRDING
CO-CREATOR OF ERLANG, TRAINER
Robert Virding is Principal Language Expert at Erlang Solutions Ltd. While at Ericsson AB, Robert was one of the original members of the Ericsson Computer Science Lab, and co-inventor of the Erlang language. He took part in the original system design and contributed much of the original libraries, as well as to the current compiler. While at the lab he also did a lot of work on the implementation of logic and functional languages and on garbage collection. He has also worked as an entrepreneur and was one of the co-founders of one of the first Erlang startups (Bluetail). Robert also worked a number of years at the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) Modelling and Simulations Group. He co-authored the first book (Prentice-Hall) on Erlang, and is regularly invited to teach and present throughout the world.
