Kevin Smith
Pragmatic Programmer author
Hypothetical Labs, Inc.

Kevin Smith has, at various times, been a network administrator, DBA, developer, team lead and trainer over his 14 year career. He first learned about Erlang in 2006 via Joe Armstrong's excellent “Programming Erlang” and has never looked back. He attended the first (and only?) Erlang Studio where he was asked to produce what became the popular PragProg screencast series "Erlang In Practice". Until recently, Kevin was a developer at Engine Yard where he worked on a distributed systems management application using Erlang. Kevin founded Hypothetical Labs in April of this year to focus on Erlang full time. He is also the co-author of the upcoming book "Erlang Web Application Development".
