NixOS developers based in Germany: get funded by Prototype Fund

hello all,

NixOS developers in Germany that would like to work on NixOS and getting paid for it might be interested in the “Prototype Fund”:


Hi there, are there any plans to apply for this grant?

Hallo, gibts bereits Einreichungen für diese Förderung?

Now it’s too late anyway, deadline is today.

Die nächste Bewerbungsphase startet am 1. Februar 2021.

In February 2023 a new round will open. The deadline for this is March 31st. A few things that are important to know:

  • it is open to individuals only
  • you need to be based in Germany and have a German tax number
  • you have to be 18 years or older
  • the idea has to have some sort of innovation: janitor work (cleaning up things, writing documentation, etc.) cannot be funded, there has to be actual software written
  • the software has to be open source
  • there are two workshops (beginning/end) that are mandatory to attend

Although the deadline is only in March it might already be useful to start thinking about possible ideas.
