Unite and conquer


Divisions are popular in our days often comparing “them” and “us”: be it research vs industry, men vs women, Erlang vs Elixir... but unity is what makes us stronger and enables us to aim for new horizons.

In this talk, Natalia and Laura will discuss their vision on creating fault-tolerant, scalable opportunities together to achieve diverse ambitions.

All BEAMers unite!
