I will definitely be there. :slight_smile:


Some pics/tweets from #ElixirLDN

Ok there’s way too many - see the rest here: https://twitter.com/hashtag/elixirldn?f=tweets&vertical=default&src=hash :lol:


So wish I could have gone! That looks awesome!!! :frowning:

EDIT: Is all of it going on youtube? Please? ^.^


I wish I was brave enough :043:

(Maybe one day :lol:)

I’m not sure re YouTube, I hope so :slight_smile:

I don’t have the money myself, nor the time away from work due to crunch period lately. ^.^;

They had scholarship places but I don’t think they included flights/accommodation etc

You’ll have to go to one closer to home :lol: (if there was one closer to me, I might :003:)

Probably not eligible for scholarship things anyway. ^.^;

If there is one in Austin again within the next year then it might be close enough to go to, might even put on a conference (though what about?!). ^.^

Elixir! :003: :lol:

The flashcard thing is cool :slight_smile: a little unrelated, does anyone here use spaced repetition sofrware like Anki? I’ve built a python script that scrapes de ExDocs of a package and generates flshcards asking things like: “what does this function do?” and “which function does this?”. It scrapes some pretty useful flashcards from the Elixir docs themselves :stuck_out_tongue:

There was definitely someone recording it at the back of the room, so fingers crossed!


All videos from Elixir.LDN will be released over the next 1-4 weeks :slight_smile:


Lol, obviously yes, but any topic ideas within that? ^.^;

Whooo I hope so!!!

Even more yay! ^.^

Maybe make it an Elixir bootcamp?

Compile-time optimizations in PEG parsers for the BEAM? xD

Except scholarship things imply I’m going to school as it would pay the school. Well, I am technically going ‘to’ a college but not as a student. ^.^;
