# Talk 1: 'Telemetry ...and metrics for all'
In this talk, we'll look at Telemetry, a new project for metrics and monitoring in the Elixir ecosystem. Telemetry provides libraries for gathering monitoring data from libraries and applications. It's already integrated with Ecto and is coming soon to Phoenix. We'll go through the design and thought process behind it, discuss the rationale for the not-so-obvious decisions, and most importantly, see the bright future of using a unified monitoring solution throughout the community.

This talk aims to introduce the audience to the Telemetry project and describe the ideas behind it. It will dispel any doubts about it and encourage the whole community to use it in their projects.

Engineers who care about monitoring their Elixir systems. However it is really everyone within the Elixir community. One of the goals of this talk is to encourage beginners and experts alike, to start caring about monitoring.

Arkadiusz Gil
Arkadiusz is a student and a software engineer at Erlang Solutions. He has a special interest in distributed systems, monitoring and software design. Recently, he has been working on the Telemetry project and writing a thesis on improving quality of service in distributed systems.

#Talk 2: 'Solving a matching algorithm at scale with the help of Elixir - Lessons Learned'

Even though Engineers get feed with problems on a daily basis, did you ever come across a problem where you thought, oh sh*** I have no idea how to solve it? This is what happened to Christian and his team recently and he would like to show his learnings and the creative way of solving a matching algorithm at scale with the help of Elixir.

Christian Froh
Christian has over 10 years’ worth of engineering experience working in Europe and San Francisco. In the last five years Chrsitian’s focus has been developing with Elixir, starting with his previous company in Germany, Wunder. Wunder was founded by an ex Director of Airbnb. Christian is now a Senior Software Engineer at Toyota Connected working on their mobility platform to improve how people move around the world. He's a damn good snowboarder too.
