Richard Carlsson
Father of eunit, edoc and try-catch

Richard Carlsson has been deeply involved with Erlang since the mid-nineties. He was one of the original members of the High-Performance Erlang group at Uppsala University, and has contributed to many parts of the standard libraries, the Erlang compiler, runtime system, and the language itself. Among other things, he is the author of Erlang's 'EDoc' documentation system and the 'EUnit' unit testing framework.
After spending three years at Virtutech and then at IAR Systems, he joined Kreditor where he was once again able to work full time with Erlang. He holds a black belt in Karate, but nowadays practices mostly Aikido when he can find the time. He is generally too busy thinking up new stuff to ever finish his PhD.
