Next Meetup

regular NixOS Meetup @c-base
Come and join us at our NixOS (https://nixos.org) meetup. You might already heard about the purely functional Linux distro but haven't found the time and support to try it out yet. We are not a structured event and usually are not having any talks. Usually we are in a pub like atmosphere and fixing NixOS issues. Come around if you have any questions or just want a little tour of Nix or NixOS. You can usually identify us by the NixOS stickers on our laptops. If you can't find us, ask for lassulus in real life or on irc.freenode.org You can bring an empty USB stick and we can install a bootable copy of NixOS on it. That's a great way to safely discover a new system. Deep knowledge of Linux and/or functional programming is not mandatory.

What we're about

Interested in NixOS? Maybe only its package manager Nix? Want to share how you (ab)use Nix(OS) in your own company? Join us.

NixOS The Purely Functional Linux Distribution

NixOS is a Linux distribution with a unique approach to package and configuration management. Built on top of the Nix package manager (http://nixos.org/nix), it is completely declarative, makes upgrading systems reliable, and has many other advantages (http://nixos.org/nixos/about.html).

Declarative

NixOS has a completely declarative approach to configuration management: you write a specification of the desired configuration of your system in NixOS’s modular language, and NixOS takes care of making it happen.

Reliable

NixOS has atomic upgrades and rollbacks. It’s always safe to try an upgrade or configuration change: if things go wrong, you can always roll back to the previous configuration.

DevOps-friendly

Declarative specs and safe upgrades make NixOS a great system for DevOps use. NixOps (http://nixos.org/nixops), the NixOS cloud deployment tool, allows you to provision and manage networks of NixOS machines in environments like Amazon EC2 and VirtualBox.
