Come and speak with Erlang committers about what's new in the Erlang eco-system. 

SCALING AND RELIABILITY

Once you learn the potential of the BEAM, it's time to learn how to put it to good use in the real world. Join us to hear the stories of Erlang and Elixir in production and share your own experiences. 

PRODUCTION USE CASES

In this track, we'll learn from other's experience, where things have been peachy and where they haven't been so much. The conferecne is set-up for you to ask the questions you want and to help others with the answrs to theirs.

FRAMEWORKS, TOOLS, LIBRARIES

In the frameworks track, you will discover what's coming next with frameworks like Phoenix, Nerves and more. This is the conference where people choose to share their new projects and releases.

WEB AND API
