2023/02/05 - Erlang, Elixir & Friends Devroom @ FOSDEM - Bruxelles/Belgium

Hey everyone!

FOSDEM 2023 is finally going to be in-person again and we’re excited to announce that the Erlang, Elixir and Friends Devroom got accepted for next year’s edition. FOSDEM is a free conference dedicated to open-source software, one of the largest in the world, and it’s the perfect venue for us showcase the power of the BEAM and get even more people excited about it!

You can find the Call for Participation here. I will keep this post updated with further news, feel free to reply here or ping me and @bettio for any questions about the submission process or anything else.

Whether you’re submitting your talk proposal, or you’re just attending the event, we hope to see you in Brussels in February!


Finally, some love for Elixir/BEAM in Belgium :purple_heart: looking forward to meet some like-minded people in my own area!


The official Call for Participation is now published on the FOSDEM mailing list.

We also revamped the BEAM FOSDEM website, which contains videos from the first edition of the Devroom at FOSDEM 2020.

It’s the last week for your Erlang, Elixir & Friends talk submission for FOSDEM’23.

The deadline is the 5th of December, so it’s the right time to make your submission without rushing it.

We’re currently still missing some content to fill up the devroom schedule, so we decided to extend the deadline to the 12th of December.

I will take this occasion to also add this: since FOSDEM attracts all sorts of programmers, we are totally happy to also accept talks that would probably considered “too basic” for a BEAM-specific conference (e.g. “Introduction to Phoenix/LiveView/Ecto/…”) and, actually, a good balance between introductory and advanced talks could have the positive effect of also attracting new users instead of just focusing on people that already know the BEAM ecosystem.

So, don’t be shy, we’re waiting for your great talk! :blush:
