Bio

Mike Williams moved to Sweden in 1970 and joined Ericsson as a hardware designer. He and Bjarne Däcker founded the Ericsson Computer Science Laboratory 1980 where Erlang was invented. Mike's role was to develop the first Erlang virtual machine (Joe developed the compiler and machine architecture). In 1990 Mike glided into management by a complete accident, and found he rather liked it.

This year’s Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2012 had an A-list sell-out line-up of speakers which included Erlang Inventors Mike Williams and Robert Virding discussing software approaches used in the industry and the unique features of the Erlang VM and a Keynote talk from Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation.
