NixOS meetup Mannheim on July 16

Nix Your Bugs & Rust Your Engines is a new meetup for people in the Rhein-Neckar region that are interested in Rust (the programming language), Nix (the package manager), or NixOS (the Linux distribution). The meetup begins with talks related to Rust and/or NixOS, and ends with casual networking and exchange between the meetup participants.

This time, it takes place at the Mafinex in Mannheim (3rd floor in unit C, 3. OG in Bauteil C), reachable by foot in ~15 minutes from the Mannheim main station. The nearest tram station is Lindenhof Windeckstraße with a distance of 500m.

You can sign up on Mobilizon,, or here on Discourse (for which you have to leave a message in this thread as I can’t use the event tag on Discourse apparently).

The event is organized by Hackerstolz, a non-profit association from Mannheim with a focus on digital education. We are always looking for new active members, and for students, membership is free. If you are interested in organizing workshops, meetups or hackathons related to digital education and/or technology, get in touch with us at the meetup or send an email to We’d love to welcome you and support you in organizing new events.
