Mahesh Paolini-Subramanya
Creator of the first Erlang Cloud PBX
Ubiquiti Networks

Mahesh Paolini-Subramanya is a V.P. of R&D at Ubiquiti Networks - a manufacturer of disruptive technology platforms for emerging markets. He has been involved in ‘Internet Stuff’ since Day Zero (remember Gopher?), and has spent the recent past building out Erlang-based massively concurrent Cloud Services and VoIP platforms.
He has the - dubious - honor of being involved in creating the first web/e-commerce system, the first Java based financial services platform, as well as the first Erlang-based cloud PBX, three products he may never live down.
He was previously the CTO of Vocalocity after its merger with Aptela (where he was a founder and CTO). Before that, he was V.P. of Development at Neoglyphics Inc, and CTO of Proxicom where he also led the Technology practise. He holds a B. Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology - Kanpur, and an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame.

Finite State Machines - Why Fear?

Finite State Machines are overlooked at best, ignored at worst, and virtually always dismissed. This is tragic since FSMs are not just about Door Locks (the most commonly used example). On the contrary, these FSMs are invaluable in clearly defining communication protocols – ranging from low-level web-services through complex telephony application to reliable interactions between loosely-coupled systems. Properly using them can significantly enhance the stability and reliability of your systems.

Join Mahesh as he takes you through a crash-course in FSMs, using erlang’s gen_fsm behavior as the background, and hopefully leaving you with a better appreciation of both FSM and erlang in the process.
