Elixir in the Big Easy

This November, we headed to New Orleans for the Big Elixir, a regional conference designed for mid and senior Elixir developers. Presentations at the single-track event focused on practical production considerations including continuous integration, hot upgrades, and distributed stateful systems.

SmartLogic team member Eric Oestrich’s presentation focused on the process of transforming a single node application to a distributed application spanning multiple nodes, and featured his work with ExVenture, an open source text based MMORPG engine written in Elixir.

We really enjoyed our time in New Orleans listening to the well planned and presented talks, chatting in the hallway track during transitions, and decompressing over happy hour in the evening. The whole event was really well run, and a pleasure to attend and sponsor. While the Big Elixir is a smaller conference than say ElixirConf, we would definitely recommend it for developers who are looking for more intermediate level professional talks.

Check out the full playlist for more great Elixir talks.

Also enjoy the videos of SmartLogic team members’ presentations from ElixirConf this past September.
