It is with regret that we have to announce that, for reasons that are unrelated to the conference, @rvirding will not be a keynote speaker this year. We will be announcing a new keynote speaker soon.

I am really sorry about that because I really did want to go to the conference. Unfortunately some personal things came in the way.


We’re extremely happy to announce our new keynote speaker and workshop trainer: Mariano Guerra, the author of efene!! He will be teaching riak_core for elixir devs and also giving a talk at the conference.


@elbrujohalcon is there going to training or just the workshops?

Just the workshops, which are meant to be hands-on.

Do you, by any chance, know when will all the talks be published?

The call for talks closes on July 19th.
After that, the talk committee (i.e @cabol, Norberto Ortigoza, @miriampena and myself) will meet and come up with the schedule that will later be published on the website.
With a somewhat broad margin, you can expect to have the talks announced by the end of July.
