Talk: Elixir makes Rob Conery very, very happy. Find out why! Talk Description: Over the last six months I’ve been working with Elixir every day, non-stop. I’m lucky. I’m also semi-obsessed. Elixir has changed the way I think about programming and software in general. I’ve ditched side projects I’ve been working on for months so I can rebuild them in Elixir. I changed editors completely (Vim to Spacemacs) because of Elixir support with Alchemist. People keep asking me what’s so special about it and I keep saying “I wish I had an hour to just sit here and show you some beautiful Elixir”. In this talk I will show you some things that make me very, very happy about Elixir and the Erlang VM. Agenda: 7:00 PM Drinks, Finger Food and Networking 7:15 PM Lightning Talk: "Redis Commands & Data Structures" by Dave Nielsen 7:30 PM "Things that make me very, very happy about Elixir" by Rob Conery8:30 PM Wrap-up About Rob Conery Bio from his website "My name is Rob Conery and I help developers of all sorts learn what’s new with technology. I have been working in the technology field full time since 1998 as a DBA and then a web developer. My original focus was the Microsoft ASP.NET stack, building tools like Subsonic and the first Micro-ORM:
There won't be any technical presentations during the first meeting. Here is first attempt of agenda: - Part 1: 2 min / attendant, introduce yourself - Part 2: ~10 min, Short presentation of Elixir (Jean-Michel) - Part 3: With drinks;) Open discussion of future meetups format What's pending is finding a free and "quiet" place with drinks and snacks to host the meeting. I am opened to suggestions. About the format, I got quite inspired by this blog post and I am thinking to get less presentations and more Hack Nights (evenings with a break for dinner to work on a real project) Please share your thoughts about the interest for an Elixir meetup in Lyon using this discussion thread or ping me on skype (jean-michel DOT garnier DOT pro) or twitter ;)
