System updates and ElixirConf EU
May 12, 2023 • Issue 58
Official project updates
This update contains an update to Nerves Heart to support “snoozing” of hardware watchdog and heart-related reboots to assist debugging heart issues. No other updates were made.
Failing to meet most Nerves people at ElixirConf
For those of you that caught me. It was lovely to meet you :) For those that hoped for coffee on the second day. I was absolutely swamped with stuff, honestly kind of hung over as well :| and entirely lost track of that chance to meet. Next ElixirConf EU we need to pack some Nerves into it. Lots of LiveView, Membrane and ML on this one.
I plan on writing up my conference experience over at underjord.io soon.
I think there is a lot of opportunity to take that stuff one step further and show inference on edge devices with just Elixir on top of Nerves as a next step. TensorFlow Lite and Edge TPU support is available for Elixir. Because Cocoa is a beast.
Get ready for Gig City Elixir, May 19-20
Two Hunleths, a couple of Outlaws and a lot of other familiar names. The speaker line-up is not quite the usual suspects but kind of bonkers good. Everyone speaks very highly of how the Tates run this event. I dearly wish I could just quickly hop across but it'd be a bit much for the family right now.
Europe does Code BEAM Stockholm Lite, May 12th
Evadne Wu has promised to address the mid-life crisis that seems to plague most established programmers. I feel threatened and very curious, her talk at ElixirConf was a wild ride of the best kind.
ElixirConf Africa 26-27th of May
The chillest remote conference in Elixir. Do look into it, I had a blast speaking at it last time.
So May is kind of busy conference-wise..
EMPEX in June! (9th)
Since it is New York and I know who organizes it I would take bets that this is the coolest Elixir conference. I really want to go but they put New York kind of inconveniently for me.
Next remote Nerves Meetup, end of May, start of June
(your timezone may vary)
Sign up for the event here to track it for more information.
