I had a great time, got a chance to talk to a bunch of people I’ve interacted with here and on the slack! I’m honestly still digesting all that information I got, but I can say that I feel super inspired now.

Some highlights: @michalmuskala talking about how erlang boots (funniest talk), @keathley talking about resilient distributed systems, and @evadne (almost) live coding an ETS ecto adapter!

btw I’m in that picture :wave:

Glad you had a good time Jola! Will keep an eye out for those talks when they are uploaded :003:

Ooo! I had to look very closely to find you! (Are you sitting at the far right hand side? :D)

If you took any pics yourself please post them - I love putting a face to a name :lol:

The conference was great, I attended several very interesting talks and had many good conversations.

Subjective selection of talks that I enjoyed the most:

  • @josevalim’s keynote about Broadway – directly beneficial in our project, and we’ll be making the switch from our homebrewed Flow-based solution
  • “Rewriting critical software in Elixir” by Renan Ranelli – some very good and practical ideas
  • “Let there be light” by @michalmuskala – interesting details about how Erlang boots up
  • “Modular Design in Elixir” by @mkaszubowski – how to come up with good module boundaries, it was very practical and took away some good techniques
  • “Elixir Down Under” by Sophie Troy – interesting case study about how Vamp uses Elixir, and reports about the Australian community
  • @chrismccord’s keynote about Phoenix LiveView – while we’re not using Phoenix yet, it’s great to see what LiveView is about and makes me even more eager to migrate our Rails app to Phoenix
