ElixirConf 2019 Announcement

01 May 2019 · by Sean Callan and Sophie DeBenedetto in Announcements

We have some very exciting news to announce today!

Elixir School and ElixirConf are partnering up to offer two days of in-person workshops! What could make this exciting announce even better? LiveView, obviously! Join us for two days of hands-on training with Phoenix, Channels, LiveView, and property-based testing. We’ll look at the role these technologies play in today’s real-time web and how we can build bulletproof features in our applications.

But wait — there’s even more! In continued dedication to our mission of making Elixir learning accessible to everyone, we’ll be offering our workshops at a discount! The specific discount and details will be announced in a follow-up post along with instructions on how you can register.

Join Sean Callan (@doomspork), Sophie DeBenedetto (@SophieDeBenedetto), and Michael Stalker (@michaelstalker) for two awesome days of training in beautiful Denver, CO. Come for Day 1 or Day 2, or both, and level up your Elixir in a truly first-of-its-kind workshop.

After Day 1’s workshop, Harnessing the Real-Time Web with Phoenix, Channels, and Presence, you’ll come away with the experience to confidently create Phoenix applications from scratch and implement basic real-time features. Along the way, learn not only Elixir and Phoenix how-tos, but also testing and application design best practices while we work together on our applications.

On Day 2, we’ll explore the advanced features of Phoenix, the real-time web, and testing with Building Bulletproof Real-Time Applications with Phoenix, LiveView, and StreamData. Expanding on the applications used in Day 1 (attendance is not required but encouraged), we’ll incorporate features into our application that leverage the new LiveView library and we’ll ensure our features are well tested with property-based testing and StreamData.

What is ElixirConf?

ElixirConf is the premier US-based conference for the Elixir programming language.
