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 7th and 8th for our 2nd annual event in the heart of The Big Easy as fellow Elixir enthusiasts come together to teach, learn, and explore all things Elixir!
This year, our conference theme is Emerging Elixir. We are looking to deliver a strong series of talks that all focus on new innovations in the Elixir ecosystem, present new ways of thinking about distributed systems, and talk deeply about lessons learned from taking Elixir far and wide.
We want to hear about the budding innovations that are happening in the Elixir community right now, from the very practical to even the very strange. How far and wide can we go with Elixir? How are we breaking the barriers of Elixir?
The Big Elixir is proud to once again to be working with New Orleans’s oldest operating playhouse, Le Petit Theatre Du Vieux Carre. Really, we could not have asked for a better venue.
Since 1922, Le Petit has been located right across from Jackson Square in the French Quarter, and has entertained thousands of audience members in a wide array of dramas, comedies, musicals - and now tech conferences!
Le Petit offers an amazing stage for speakers, world-class acoustics, and a fantastic A / V team to create the perfect tech event for everyone! The theatre also includes ADA accessible seats and a beautiful French Quarter courtyard for our hallway track!
