“Gig City Elixir’s speaker line-up is strong. They’re bringing in the programmers that shaped Elixir before Elixir was even born as well as the developers that are evolving the language and community every day.”
Gig City Elixir is a different kind of programming conference in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee. We will focus on sessions that are different from what you're used to seeing, with a variety of talk lengths and formats that will open more learning channels than ever before.
One of the best speaker lineups at any 2018 programming conference will teach you the foundational techniques you'll need to succeed in today's programming industry. You'll learn to use functional programming concepts that will make you a better programmer, regardless of the languages and tools you use at work today.

The software industry has about as many libraries and projects to help you get things done as it does programmers. Lots of conferences focus on those. That’s a fine approach. GigCityElixir doesn’t.
In a world making a slow transition between object oriented and functional paradigms, our conference is packed with experienced developers and industry leaders who have been active voices for both. They are there to do one thing: make you a better programmer by focusing on the foundational skills you’ll take with you no matter the tech stack.
So whether seasoned software engineer or Johnny-come-lately there’s a lot of something for everyone.
New ideas and new friends await. Look forward to seeing you all in October!

We are making Gig City Elixir a diverse experience. We are doing this by making scholarships available to those under-represented in our programming community including women and minorities. Part of this includes mentoring folks leading up to the conference to make sure our scholarship recepients can take full advantage.
