Elixir Conf's team describes the event as "made by developers for developers". While it may not be the most original summary, a quick look at the event's schedule confirms that this one will be highly informative.
An annual conference about devoted to Ruby. Rubyists from all over the world will meet in Fukuoka in Japan to share their experiences and spread new ideas.

In times when many of today's tech events are trying to sell you something, this one is clearly devoid of sales and coach speeches. Pure knowledge and information.
