NixCon 2024 - Berlin, Germany

Hey everyone! :wave:
We are happy to finally announce NixCon 2024!

This is an event by the community for the community. We want to show that we are self sufficient, and for that reason there will be no sponsorships this time. We want to have a larger emphasis on workshops and on working together on problems we deeply care about.

We invited Carlos Matos for motivational speaking. Don’t worry, it will be strictly about NixOS, nothing to do with crypto. Not sure if he will come, but let’s keep our fingers crossed!

And ticket prices will not be dependent on this, he will be coming 100% on his own budget. He loves NixOS, believe it or not.


EDIT/Note

This is a bit of an ironic post, for those who don’t get it. But there will maybe be some kind of surprise, as a small teaser.

Is there an rss/atom feed with updates regarding nixcon?

There is none for the website, and there probably won’t be.

I’d recommend following this thread with your RSS reader.

Meaning: appending .rss to the URL.

What are the clothing recommendations? What weather should I expect? Is it above 10 celsius?

October should be around 10°C, so might be a bit above or below. I wouldn’t expect snow but rain is definitely possible.

Is the foundation sponsoring speakers for travel for NixCon?
I’d love to attend but trans-atlantic travel is pricey.
