2023-03-25 (Saturday) Nix meetup at TUHH – Hamburg, Germany


Saturday 2023-03-25

13:30-17:30 Europe/Berlin

TUHH building F (NIT)
Room 1.17
Kasernenstr. 12, Hamburg

Capacity: 9(+1)/14 people (we may get a larger room if needed)


Schedule (WIP)

  • Lightning talk: What is Nix and why do I care? (@fricklerhandwerk)
  • Q&A, Snacks and Drinks
  • Lightning talk: Ideas on unifying the three declarative configuration frameworks (@fricklerhandwerk)
  • Discussion: Brainstorming on setting up more community teams
  • Discussion: Regular meetups in Hamburg

Feel free to propose lightning talks or discussion items, such as questions you’d like to have answered!

I can offer insights on what’s wrong going on with documentation and report from the Nix team.


I have only heard about Nix or I‘m very new to Nix – is this for me?

Do you write software using a huge toolchain that’s full of magic? Hell yes, you’ll like it. Bonus points if you’ve experienced your tools break unprompted and for impenetrable reasons.

This all sounds really technical and obscure. Won‘t that be boring or confusing for beginners?

Depending on the baseline knowledge in the group we can make an introduction that your grandma will understand. Promised. (No grandmas were harmed during the making of this introduction.)

You still probably will have more fun with the rest of the schedule if you’ve experienced the pain of trying to work with computers for real.

PS: We have another meetup one week later, in the evening: 2023-03-31 (Friday) Nix Hacker Talk at freiheit.com – Hamburg, Germany
