Kenneth Lundin
Manager of the Erlang/OTP dev team at Ericsson
Ericsson AB

Kenneth Lundin has been working with SW development since the late 70s.  As a curiousity it can be mentioned that Kenneth was one of the pioneers in the use of C++ at Ericsson. Unsurprisingly Kenneth's interest for OO languages has been slighty revised since then.  He joined the Erlang/OTP project in it's early stages 1996 and has been working both with application components and the runtime system since then. Has been managing the team for about 10 years now.

Kenneth Lundin is Giving the Following Talks
The Erlang/OTP Roadmap

Kenneth gives an update of the Erlang/OTP team's work at Ericsson - their current projects and plans for future.

Investigating Hashes/Frames/Structs as a new built-in datatype in Erlang

During the fall the Erlang/OTP team has prototyped and investigated alternative solutions for the introduction of a new built in datatype with characteristics like Hashmaps, hashes etc.

There are several alternative ways to go, for example an efficient implementation of property lists or just a better record datatype. The talk will present the findings so far with a discussion of pros and cons, performance measurements etc.
