The Big Elixir is a new Elixir conference put on by some of our friends in New Orleans, just down the road from our Baton Rouge HQ. We've made a lot of investment in Elixir lately at NewAperio, and indeed many of our new projects are written using Elixir. We're really excited that there's a local, homegrown conference celebrating Elixir. Our senior engineers, Cody and Nick, in addition to myself will be present at the conference.
I'm also excited to announce that I'll be giving a talk at The Big Elixir! It's titled "Elixir in the Cloud" and it combines two of my favorite topics: devops and Elixir. When coming to Elixir the biggest question for a lot of people is about deployment. That includes myself when I first started. The talk will cover containerizing a Phoenix app and using best practices to deploy the app on AWS. Check back here after the talk for slides and code samples.
If you'll be at the conference, reach out and say hello! We'd love to meet you.
