Early Bird

This means you get a free ticket. However, we are in the course to seek support for this amazing event so if you feel the need to support this event kindly purchase your ticket on one of the other payment tiers that will work for you. Cheers!

( Swahili for Gold)

This here is our standard Ticket package for ElixirConf Africa. We acknowledge the awesome talks, workshops and networks built during Elixir Conferences in other continents and we'd love to establish the stream of diversity within our attendees

(Shona for Copper)

We understand that the event rates for other continents are way higher than this, but this being our first continental elixir community event we'd like African Beam Devs to come out in large numbers and not feel left out due to financial constraints

(Luganda for Bronze)

We understand that some of our esteemed attendees might not be able to raise enough financially to attend the conference. So if by chance you are fortunate enough kindly use the other available payment tiers

Diversity & Inclusion

In collaboration with Erlang Ecosystem Foundation, ElixirConf Africa is implementing a Diversity and Inclusion scheme, aimed at supporting the under-represented in tech and those who cannot afford to purchase a ticket to the event. The deadline for application is 30th April 2020.
