Brian Cardarella of DockYard will be presenting at RailsConf and has graciously offered to present at a KC Elixir MeetUp.
Thursday, May 5 is right in the middle of RailsConf, and follows our "first Thursday" schedule, so... BOOM! We have a MeetUp.
Brian would like to talk about Courier, an Elixir library for mail delivery on which he's been working. (If a majority of our attendees would *rather* hear about "Rails to Phoenix", we can convince him, but he was concerned that would be more Ruby-y than Elixir-y.)
I'm kicking several ideas for venue:
• Brightergy has offered to host us again
• Sprint Accelerator (I think they have an excellent setup for MeetUps)
• Kauffman Foundation Conference center (also a good venue for MeetUps, near Country Club Plaza, which I think could be a nice attraction for any out-of-towners who might attend)
If anyone has any input on venue, please let me know.
