Elixir Conf 2014
Last week in Austin, I attended the world's first Elixir conference. It was very energizing! With only 105 people attending, the vibe was that of a Ruby conference 10 or more years ago. Jose Valim, the language creator, was there; two Erlang heavyweights were also in attendance -- Robert Virding and Francesco Cesarini.
There were many Rubyists there, of course, but I will only mention myself, Dave Thomas, and Jim Freeze. The three of us were also at the first Ruby conference in 2001.
This will be an exciting ride. I'll keep you informed.
