The Ultimate Online Elixir Experience

Welcome to ElixirConf 2020

September 3-4

The Elixir Community's premier conference for Elixir developers and enthusiasts from around the globe.

ElixirConf US, the seventh annual ElixirConf conference, is being taken to an online venue on September 3-4, 2020.

ElixirConf Update

What's new for ElixirConf?

ElixirConf is a global and diverse community, brought together by a passion for Elixir.

The community's physical gathering for the previous six conferences has been the source of inspiration and community growth.

Now the emerging stages of COVID-19 lockdown in different countries, national travel restrictions, and quarantines, prevent us from meeting in person.

But we will not be stopped from sharing our Elixir experiences!

Join ElixirConf and the Elixir community for a respite from the world Sept. 1-4, for a spectacular Elixir event with the latest Elixir news and technology.

Don't miss it!

Some Questions You May Have

These are unprecedented times and we don't have all the answers, but here are the current plans.

Will attendees be able to watch talks only live, or will they have access to videos of talks they missed.
Attendees will be able to watch talks live and join talks in progress or watch the recording soon after the talk is complete.
How will the hall-track work?
The hall-tracks will be simulated with several zoom rooms on general topics. Attendees will be able to drop into a zoom room and join the group conversation. Some hall-tracks will be conversations with speakers following their talk.
How will the sponsor booths work?
Sponsors will have individual zoom meetings that attendees can drop in and talk to sponsors. Platinum sponsors also have full speaking slots to share how they use Elixir at their company.
Will videos of the talks be published after the conference?
The Keynotes will be publicly published after the conference. Ticket holders will have access to the recorded talks after the conference. Access to the talks may be purchased after the conference by non-ticket holders. At some point, all videos will be publicly available.
Will t-shirts be sent to attendees?
T-shirts are currently being designed for the conference. Since we don't have logistics in place to distribute the t-shirts, the likely scenario is that the conference shirts will be available on Cafe Press for purchase.

If you programmed here, you’d be home already! Give back to the Elixir Community with your first Hex Package.

Let’s mix a new hex package! I bet you’ve written something worth sharing with the world, and there’s no solution too small. Building software for others creates a strong Elixir community and forges even stronger developers. Discover how to take an idea from conception to `hex.publish`.
Topic: Hex
Beginner, Intermediate

Talk Description

“I'm not good enough to write open source.”

Ever catch yourself thinking that? Many of us assume that open source is reserved for brilliant programmers. As an Elixir developer, names like José Valim and Chris McCord quickly spring to mind. I’d like to show you that perhaps there's a lot less standing between you and your first Elixir package than you might think. This talk will demonstrate how to take the leap from individual to open source contributor.

Together, we'll map out each step toward your first package; from wide-eyed idea to one-point-oh release, and everything in-between. Using my new package `Attrition` as an example (https://hex.pm/packages/attrition), you'll learn how Elixir makes it easy to create a new package, thoroughly document its API, and share it with the community. If I can do it, you can—I promise!

Publishing a package of your own not only makes working in Elixir better right now, you'll also build skills to inspire the next generation of developers that they're good enough to write open source too.
