Elixir Events/Conferences in 2018

With the new year I am looking at travel for this year and I’d love to base some travel around Elixir. So in the spirit of the 2017 thread, I’d like to make a list of major Elixir Events in 2018.

Details not yet announced:

Already finished:

Am I missing any?


ElixirConf JP, April 1 in Japan http://www.elixirconf.jp/

It’s about the one in 2017. Though I’ve heard it will also be held in 2018, the date has yet to be opened.

Nice catch. Updated the post to reflect that the details are not yet announced.

Yeee, it’s so close, both in distance and temporally, I wonder if I could make it for the first time for any programming conference ever… >.>

Thanks, James! We are very excited about this here are some ideas for what we are about.

  • We will have four to six speakers who have keynoted major conferences before. The speaker quality will be excellent.

  • One if two focal topics is foundations. Wherever you are from beginner to expert we will make you a better programmer. We want this to be loss about frameworks and more about being better coders.

  • The second focal topic is a surprise.

  • We will be especially friendly to women and minority attendees. We are working aggressively with major sponsors to make this happen.

We hope to see you in Chattanooga!



Freudian slip on that count ? :wink:
