The Big Elixir is a two-day, single track conference to help developers take their Elixir skills to the next level. Join us on November 8th and 9th in the heart of The Big Easy as fellow Elixir enthusiasts come together to teach, learn, and explore all things Elixir!
This year, we'd like to create a conference focused on the theme of Using Elixir in Production. The Elixir community is exploding and we are all trying to understand how to best use the power of Elixir, Erlang, and OTP to create the best applications for our business.
We want to help you learn how to create those great apps and, in turn, further Elixir adoption. If you are interested in Elixir application deployment, monitoring, debugging, or anything to help take your production Elixir app to the next level, then we believe that this is the conference for you!
The Big Elixir is very proud to be working with New Orleans’s oldest operating playhouse, Le Petit Théâtre Du Vieux Carré. Really, we could not have asked for a better venue.
Since 1922, Le Petit has been located just off of Jackson Square, in the French Quarter and has entertained thousands of audience members in a wide array of dramas, comedies, and musicals.
Le Petit offers an amazing stage, world-class acoustics, and a great A/V team to not only ensure a great conference but also a comfortable and cozy one for all. The theatre includes ADA accessible seats, spread out between the orchestra and balcony levels.
The Hyatt Centric French Quarter is a New Orleans luxury hotel located in the historic French Quarter adjacent to Bourbon Street in New Orleans. This historic hotel offers smoke-free guestrooms, plush bedding, modern in-room amenities, and balconies that overlook the historic French Quarter, gorgeously landscaped courtyards and New Orleans' famous Bourbon Street.
If you're new to New Orleans and looking for recommendations from locals on restaurants, bars, music, and kid-friendly things to do with family while you're here, we've created a curated a google map just for you! Check it out!

Nicky is a Tech Talent South graduate and co-organizer of BarCampNola. She is the most organized person we know. This conference is not possible without her spreadsheets and attention to detail.
Joe is the co-founder of many popular tech meetups in New Orleans and started learning Elixir because Bryan wouldn't stop talking about it. Now he's hooked and it's all Bryan's fault.
We’ll do our best to not mail you unless it’s important. We also hate spam :)
