The Telynx team is excited to head to ElixirConf, set to kick off on the 4th of September until the 7th. Not sure what ElixirConf is? Well, it’s the premier conference for the Elixir community where Elixir developers from around the world gather for four days.
The main purpose of the conference is to advance the Elixir programming language and the communities and companies surrounding it. Some of the greatest minds in the space come together to establish relationships for work, collaboration and entrepreneurship.
Putting things in perspective, last year ElixirConf had over 60 speakers and trainers, 650 attendees, and 12 sponsors. The exciting part? ElixirConf 2018 is expected to be bigger and better than ever, and we couldn’t be prouder to be a sponsor for this year’s event.
ElixerConf 2018 Notes
Over the course of the four days, ElixirConf is hosting two days of training, September 4-5, and two days of speakers, September 6-7, in a multi-track conference. To give you a taste of what’s to come at the event, we’ve summarized our speakers and their courses. Take a look!
Renan Ranelli - Understanding Elixir's (Re)compilation
Renan will be running an intermediate/advanced course on Elixir’s compilation. Elixir's code-generation capabilities require a sophisticated compiler with complex dependency tracking. Given such complexity, it is often unclear why sometimes changing a single line in a single file triggers the recompilation of 100 other files - a core aspect of which this talk aims to clarify.
The majority of the content presented in this talk was "discovered" while struggling with recompilations of 500+ files in a 2000+ .beam file Phoenix app. Renan learned things the hard way, so you don’t have to!
The talk will be a deep dive into what happens when you type "mix compile", why and when modules need to be recompiled and how compilation behavior interacts with umbrella apps. You’ll learn how to "debug" recompilation problems, which tools to use and how to avoid common pitfalls.
Guilherme de Maio - Down the Memory Lane: a Tale of Memory Leaks
Guilherme is leading a course on the history of memory leaks and how he’s experienced their occurrence in relation to Elixir apps. The talk outlines why leaks happen and what to do when they occur.
This will include how the Erlang runtime is different from other platforms and how can you pinpoint what’s causing the leak itself.
Oh, and if you're going to be at the conference, make sure to say hello! We're giving out some great prizes!
