Nix Camp - A Small Event for Nix Enthusiasts

Hey guys. I’ve been hard at work organising this for a few weeks, would love to see what the interest is in such an event, as well as any feedback.

That’s a fantastic idea - one I would love to participate in (that’s however not possible due to current travel restrictions). One thing though for future events - 2 months notice is a little short for those of us who wouldn’t travel half-way across the planet just for this but need to align it with other travel plans.

What would you say the ideal notice period is? Also, there will be more, for sure. Since a lot of people have mentioned this.

Thanks for making this!

I hope there will be more events like this in the future :slight_smile:

How is it going? Is the event catching on, and who’s going? (The web page still says 10 spots available each week…)

It’s still open for anyone who wants to join, but Nix is largely European and so Covid has made it difficult for planned travel to Wales for most of those who were interested. I’ve met up with a few people IRL who’ve wanted to attend, so I’ve updated the number of places on the website to reflect that.

The Nix community in the UK is not very large, as far as I know, so domestic participation hasn’t been successful.

Those willing to deal with Covid complexities are still welcome! Fortune favours the bold.
