Join DockYard at The Big Elixir 2019 and hear Founder Brian Cardarella discuss the potential that the programming language Elixir offers companies looking for advanced technology in their organizations. The two-day event will be held November 7 and 8 at the Le Petit Theatre Du Vieux Carre in New Orleans.

More than ever, Elixir is becoming the go-to technology to solve a range of business problems in industries such as financial services, healthcare, agriculture, retail, and media and entertainment. The conference, dubbed Emerging Elixir, will explore innovations within the ecosystem and present a range of applications for Elixir, from distributed systems and Nerves to new real-time web application features built with LiveView.

Brian’s keynote will be held Thursday, November 7 at 9:30 am.

As a functional, concurrent language, Elixir is capable of building distributed, fault-tolerant applications to serve IT challenges that must rely on robust, web-scale, high-performing computing power. Areas such as big data, Internet of Things (IoT), and machine learning all are benefiting from applications built on Elixir architecture.
