The Erlang, Elixir & Friends Devroom will take place on Saturday, 1 February 2020. We invite authors to submit original, high-quality work with sufficient background material to be clear to the BEAM community.

We welcome any talk proposals about BEAM-related projects. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Languages running on the BEAM (Erlang, Elixir, et. al.)
    • Introduction to the language
    • Recent features and roadmap
    • Interesting libraries
  • Frameworks
  • Open Source projects that run on the BEAM
  • Tooling
  • Scalability and reliability
  • Community initiatives

Talks slots are aimed at 20 minutes each (eventually including time for a short Q&A).

Please be aware of the fact that Devroom talks at FOSDEM will be recorded. By submitting a proposal you agree to being recorded and to have your talk made available.

Submissions must include:

  • Title (Event title in Pentabarf)
  • Abstract

These additional details must be included in the ‘Submission notes’ section:

  • Expected prior knowledge / intended audience
  • Speaker bio
  • Links to previous talks by the speaker (optional)
  • Links to code / slides / material for the talk (optional)
