2023/02/05 - Erlang, Elixir & Friends Devroom @ FOSDEM - Bruxelles/Belgium

Hey everyone!

FOSDEM 2023 is finally going to be in-person again and we’re excited to announce that the Erlang, Elixir and Friends Devroom got accepted for next year’s edition. FOSDEM is a free conference dedicated to open-source software, one of the largest in the world, and it’s the perfect venue for us showcase the power of the BEAM and get even more people excited about it!

You can find the Call for Participation here. I will keep this post updated with further news, feel free to reply here for any questions about the submission process or anything else.

Whether you’re submitting your talk proposal, or you’re just attending the event, we hope to see you in Brussels in February!


The official Call for Participation is now published on the FOSDEM mailing list.

We also revamped the BEAM FOSDEM website, which contains videos from the first edition of the Devroom at FOSDEM 2020.


Hi everyone!

Thank to everyone who submitted great content, the schedule is now live

We hope to see many of you in Brussels in February, let’s keep this thread to organize possible meetups during FOSDEM


Hey everyone!
FOSDEM is getting near, and in addition to the Devroom we’re also organizing a BEAM FOSDEM Meetup for Saturday evening to allow us to catch up with all the BEAM enthusiasts in Bruxelles.

The chosen meetup location is the Brewdog Brewery since it has lots of room to accomodate people and it also serves food in case someone wants to have dinner there.

The planned starting time is 8 PM, but don’t be afraid to join afterwards if you can’t make it for that time. The idea is that people should generally come and go as they please, once the first flock forms, the meetup should be self-evident and self-sustaining (do wear some obviously BEAM-themed clothes if you have them so that newcomers can easily find the group :smile:)

The point of contact for the Saturday Meetup is Tonći Galić (Tuxified), so ping him on Mastodon if you think you’re going to join us or if you need some additional details.

Hope to see many of you in Brussels!


I just wanted to thank the organizers and the speakers for their great work! It was a pleasure to attend the Erlang, Elixir and Friends Devroom. :clap:
