Call for Papers

@djacu @sarcasticadmin and David Nuon are heading up a new speaker track for this coming year: Reproducible and Immutable Software We’d like to announce this track specifically to the wider nix community for those interested in speaking on the topic at the event. The description for the track is as follows:

This track is dedicated to exploring recent advancements in reproducible and immutable software as a means to achieve security, consistency, and reliability in software builds and deployments. Talks may discuss tools, techniques, patterns and success stories implementing reproducibility and/or immutability including (but not limited to) use of Nix, NixOS, Guix, Fedora Silverblue, or Ubuntu Core.

Additionally, there are many other tracks should you be interested in submitting a talk outside of the aforementioned track. These include: Embedded, Systems and Infrastructure, Observability, etc. The full list can be found here: Call For Presenters | SCALE 21x
