Elixir Camp 4

October 26th - 29th, 2018

Camp Wombaroo

(near Mittagong, Sydney)

Elixir Camp is a place for people interested in Elixir, Erlang and related technologies to gather, network, share ideas and generally have a great time.

Diversity and Inclusion

While there's a general focus on Elixir developers, people of any background are encouraged to attend. We are committed to creating an open and inclusive community and as such have started developing a series of policies and initiatives that you can read more about here.

You should come to Elixir Camp if:

  • You like Elixir/Erlang
  • You have limited knowledge of Elixir, but you want to change that
  • You're into building high speed, fault tolerant, distributed applications
  • You've got specialist knowledge and you'd like to share with other enthusiasts
  • You're interested in web technologies
  • You've got a weekend project you really want to work on
  • You'll abide by ourย code of conduct

Food and Beverages

Elixir Camp will supply meals and snacks during the weekend, as well as tea, coffee and soft drinks.

Alcoholic beverages are not included in the ticket price, please purchase any beverages you'd like to bring prior to boarding the bus.

Please bring along any extra snacks you would like.

Essentials to Pack

  • A sleeping bag or the like
  • A pillow case
  • A towel (or two)
  • Clothes for mild to cool weather
  • Computer gear and chargers
  • Toiletries for the weekend
  • Download any packages, libraries and software you might want to use on a camp project. It's best to be prepared
  • Any snacks you might like to bring along
  • Games to play with others. Werewolf, Avalon, Cards Against Humanity, Flux and Poker have all featured at previous camps

Getting to Elixir Camp on Friday 26th

Attendees should catch a train from Sydney Central to Mittagong. A shuttle bus will depart from the North side of Mittangong at 4:30pm sharp to take everyone the rest of the way to Camp Wombaroo. See: train timetable.

Please note that this is an hour later than the originally scheduled. If you find yourself in Mittagong early, there are some cafes, shops and pubs in which to pleasantly pass the time :)

If attendees would like to alcoholic beverages there is a Dan Murphy's in Mittagong. Just make sure you're back at the station in time to meet the bus!

Note: if you're planning on flying into Sydney, catch a train to Sydney Central and make sure you allow ample time for your journey by train to Mittagong.

Departing Elixir Camp on Monday 29th

The shuttle bus will depart Camp Wombaroo no later than 9:30am to drop off at Mittagong station where campers should make their way back to Sydney Central by train. See: train timetable.

Please note that this is 30 minutes later than originally scheduled. If you were planning on making the 9:34am train to Sydney Central the next available service is 10:18am. If you absolutely must make the 9:34am train, then speak to James during the camp to arrange an early lift. We don't want any attendees missing flights!

Please allow ample time for delays, epsecially if you're flying.


We're looking for sponsors for the following things:

  • A coach from Sydney Central to Camp Wombaroo
  • Diversity & student tickets
  • T-Shirts and/or stickers
  • Coffee
  • Opening BBQ
  • Closing BBQ
  • Extra special snacks!

Events like Elixir Camp are not possible without sponsorship. We rely on the support of amazing and generous sponsors to make it possible!
