Hi, I’m currently checking out if my employer would be willing to sponsor my trip to NixCon 2022. Has anyone a rough figure how much the conference ticket will approximately be? Our travel department needs numbers :slight_smile:


The model we use is to have the tickets cover for the catering costs, so it scales with the number of guests. And the sponsors pay for the fixed costs like venue and equipment.

We haven’t locked in the numbers yet. It should be in the same range as previous years, but I don’t know if Paris will be more expensive yet. Maximum 120 EUR per person. Also, check with your company if they will sponsor NixCon because some tickets are also included there.


Uh the link about submitting a talk leads to something about sponsoring? How does one submit?

Thanks, I fixed the link. To submit talks, go to NixCon 2022 :: pretalx


Reviewed! We had a lot of submissions this year, and it took us a while to filter through the excellent vs good submissions.


Wow, even though it’s just a lightning talk, it’ll be the first time on NixCon that I’ll do a conference talk… kinda excited (and also slightly nervous :sweat_smile: )


And it was a good talk, definitely the type to have on a conference! Made already twice now the mistake of typing iceweasel to start my browser :wink:
