THEMES

THE BEAM

Learn from the leading experts and Erlang committers about new language constructs, VM implementations, and powerful libraries which form the Erlang eco-system. You will learn how many of its features work and how to best use them to write fast and efficient code.

FRAMEWORKS

In the frameworks track, you will learn from the leading experts and committers about new and leading frameworks such as  Phoenix, MongooseIM, Nerves and RabbitMQ. You will find out how these frameworks work, how to best use them and where not to use them.

SCALABILITY AND RELIABILITY

Scaling has been a given for many years now and the BEAM supervision concepts are well understood. But you need more, much more. You want to build distributed clusters of massive potential, you want to monitor your systems and automatically provision replacement hardware in case of failures. What is best-practice? What are the big players doing? How do you ensure you don't have to wake in the middle of the night?

WEB AND APIS

With recent innovations the BEAM is now suitable for rapid web application development and gives any of the established frameworks a run for their money. Much work has been done to integrate with cloud providers such as Google and Amazon, and containerisation such as Docker and Kubernetes. The BEAM of 2019 can control your infrastructure, write Google documents, and is ideal for integrating with 3rd party services such as machine learning, and payment providers.

TOOLS

It's not always clear what off-the-shelf software is useful in production-quality systems. In the tools track, you will learn what existing production systems' maintainers are using to monitor and test their systems via war stories and experience reports of novice and expert users.

INTRODUCTION TO ERLANG AND ELIXIR

New to Erlang and/or Elixir? Interested, but don't know quite where to dig in? We've all been there! In this track, you will learn from other's experience, get a sense of the lay of the software ecosystem, get help from the community and contribute back for everyone's benefit.

CASE STUDIES

Every new domain that Erlang and Elixir push into brings a new class of problems and a new class of solutions. In this track, we'll learn from other's experience, where things have been peachy and where they haven't been so much. We'll all walk away with a more clear idea of how to build highly reliable software.
