Jesper Louis Andersen at ErlangDC (8th of February)
Visiting Washington DC this February? Why not drop by ErlangDC and talk to our very own Jesper Louis Andersen.
He's giving a talk on Ranking Games & Scheduling Jobs, so if you're interested in ranking frameworks, QuickCheck or Quake Live, you don't want to miss it.
Jesper is a Danish programming language geek who is now heading up the Erlang Solutions Copenhagen office. Jesper has programmed in numerous different programming languages. He has a keen interest in weaving functional programming with parallelism and concurrency. He likes to try out new ideas from theoretic research by finding a real-world application and building a system around the idea in order to evaluate its usefulness. In the process he likes to apply knowledge from different areas of mathematics and computer science and he has a curiosity for anything new. He is the principal programmer and leader of two open source projects, implementing the BitTorrent Peer-to-peer content distribution protocol in Haskell and Erlang respectively. He also leads the "safetyvalve" project for load management of Erlang nodes.
