Erlang Training and Consulting Ltd

Jan Henry Nyström has been using Erlang for well over a decade. Having come in contact with it at Uppsala University in the late nineties, he started his PhD developing a tool that could automatically extract and formally analyze the supervision structure of an Erlang/OTP application from the source code.

In 2002, he became a research associate at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. There, he was able to re-implement existing distributed Motorola applications written in C++ to Erlang. His research resulted in the publication of numerous papers and journal entries. In 2006, he joined Erlang Training and Consulting as a Research and Training manager. His involvement is not only with training and research. He has kept his knowledge and experience up to date by being involved as an Erlang/OTP consultant and lead developer in many high profile projects.
