Keynote by Justin Sheehy (CTO Basho Technologies)

At this year's Erlang Workshop, we have the pleasure of presenting
Justin Sheehy as our keynote speaker.

Justin is a prominent member of the Erlang community not only due to
his leadership in Erlang development efforts to create and maintain
Webmachine and Riak (both are very well known and highly respected
Erlang systems); but also for his efforts to promote Erlang through
conference speaking, social media, and as a member of the Industrial
Erlang Users Group. He has a very high level of knowledge and wisdom
regarding distributed systems, and his CTO position affords him a view
of both industry and academia that few others have.
