Welcome to Lonestar ElixirConf™ in Austin, TX, February 22-24 .

Lonestar ElixirConf is focused on helping web and embedded developers accelerate their organization’s incorporation of scalable and fault tolerant software into their environment. This year, attendees will hear inspiring keynotes from Chris McCord, the creator of Phoenix, and Tim Mecklem, Nerves core team member.

The conference will host a single-track of instruction, including 12 speakers, 3 keynote speakers, and community driven lightning talks.

Join us for the gathering of Elixir developers, from novice to experienced, for up to three full days of education, networking and collaboration.



  • Chris McCord

    Chris McCord is a programmer with a passion for science and building things. He spends his time crafting the Phoenix Framework, working with the fine folks at DockYard , writing books like Metaprogramming Elixir, and teaching others the tools of the trade.

  • Tim Mecklem

    Tim works at Gaslight in Cincinnati, OH building software solutions on Ruby and Elixir and is a member of the Nerves Core team. He credits his previous experience in building iOS apps for changing the entire way he thinks about development. Those tiny screens gave Tim an appreciation for simplifying workflows that he applies to every application, and it nudged him toward Elixir and the Nerves Project. Today Tim lives in Mason, OH with his wife, two kids and two dogs. He loves running and has completed the full Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon twice.

  • Aaron Patterson

    Aaron is on the Ruby core team, the Rails core team, and the team that takes care of his cat, Gorby puff. During the day he works for a small technology company called GitHub. Someday he will find the perfect safety gear to wear while extreme programming.
