Eric Pulier Is Always On The Move With Technology
Eric Pulier is the man behind a new gaming app development company that takes the features and incorporates them into real world uses. That company is vAtomic Systems, a company Pulier says was born out of a disappointment he had when he founded another company that wasn’t used the way he thought it would be. He’s never been one to be content with things to stay as they are, so he’s decided to invest in disruptive apps and software. Pulier believes that technology such as Bitcoins will change the economy as we know it.
Eric Pulier was only a young boy when he began to program. He was raised in Teaneck, NJ and while attending elementary school he started teaching himself how to write computer programs. He then built an early database company when he was only in high school. His brilliance in technology and academics landed him at Harvard where he studied literature and was an editor and writer for the acclaimed Harvard Crimson. He took classes at MIT in advanced computer science and graduated in 1988 magna cum laude.
He moved to Los Angeles in 1991 and entered the IT industry by forming a group of young activists under the group name People Doing Things. Eventually their endeavors to bring technology to use for social activism led to the formation of Pulier’s company Digital Evolution. This company used interactive web design and video to cater to big name clients such as Microsoft, Warner Brothers and Toyota. Digital Evolution was also the host company for the 1997 Presidential Technology Exhibition.
Pulier became Chairman of US Interactive in 1998 when that company merged with Digital Evolution. The year they merged, Pulier brought the company into the major virtual reality and social media project at Starbright World. Starbright World helped chronically ill children speak about their illnesses with others like them through this platform. Pulier got into cloud computing in the coming years and built Akana, an SOA company that is now owned by Rogue Wave. He also built ServiceMesh which was bought by the Computer Sciences Corporation. Pulier is the co-author of “Understanding Enterprise SOA,” a book that explains important tech terms.
