The Nix Hour is a weekly Q&A-style lecture on Nix from Tweag, hosted by me, open for anyone to join and bring any question about Nix or just listen in. These sessions are all live-streamed to the Tweag YouTube channel and available in this playlist. Tomorrow (2023-03-09 14:00 CET) will be the 20th one, but I’d like to probe the community if there’s a better day and time. So if you’re interested in the Nix Hour, please fill out this poll so we can find the time that works for the most people! I will also mention this in tomorrows session. The available options are an arbitrary selection of the times that work for me.

Originally questions were only asked directly during the meeting, but because most people just wanted to listen in, we didn’t have that many questions. Because of that I created GitHub - tweag/nix-hour: Questions for the weekly Nix Hour where people could ask questions by opening issues in advance, and closing the issues when the question was answered.
This, combined with the live-streams, means that the entire process is now asynchronous for most people, and there’s seemingly little reason to join the sessions yourself. But I think this makes it a worse result overall, because there’s barely any feedback or interaction during the session, it’s mostly just me talking a monologue! And even after the session it’s rare to get feedback (so if you have some, please share, especially improvement suggestions!).
So to at least encourage a bit more interaction, I’d like to probe the community on the day and time when most interested people would be able to join the session directly.
