We’ve collected several videos from March related to embedded Erlang and Elixir at In particular, one you may not have noticed because it was as a meetup rather than a conference:

@Arto - Interactive Robotics with Nerves and Elixir

I’ve been really diving into learning OTP over the past few months. It was really hard for me to understand for a long time, but it’s finally starting to click! OTP is AWESOME.

I recently gave a talk on OTP at my local meetup walking through the basics, hoping to help spare others my initial anguish of trying to understand it all. It assumes no prior knowledge of Elixir or OTP (though understanding basic Elixir syntax and its data structures is helpful).

Let me know if you enjoy the talk, would love to hear any other (kind) feedback! :slight_smile:


I watched your ‘Intro to OTP’ the other day and it cleared many confusions I had about OTP! This is definitely the video that I would share with anyone new to OTP! Good job and thank you, Jesse. :slight_smile:


I did really enjoy and find your talk helpful. Thank you! One question - the example shows new_state being created from state. Since state is no longer used because we’re using the new_state, what happens to the memory that was allocated for the data in state? We can’t keep doing updates like that without something filling up… Thanks again!

The video of the talk I gave at Rubyconf Portugal is online along with the slides. It’s a look at Elixir & Phoenix focusing on the explicit part of the title. Namely, how do Elixir and Phoenix make my programming life better apart from just raw speed? The talk is aimed at people not yet too familiar with Elixir & Phoenix and should serve as a good introduction, especially for ruby folks. It’s high level so touches upon a lot of topics that could be full talks.

If you have any feedback about the talk, content, presentation wise or whatever I’d be happy to hear it :grinning:

PS: hope this is appropriate to post here, sorry if not! :slight_smile:


Very good presentantion @PragTob! I liked the way you tackled it, is a much more interesting way for rubists. Sending it to my ruby fellows right now!
