Talks:

#1:

"Building and Deploying a Haskell App with Nix, the Case of Brickdash"

by Martin Potier

"In order to raise awareness of nix in the company, and because we needed an always-on supervision tool for different statuses of our software development, we build a small Haskell application called Brickdash. This application is running on a refurbished laptop running NixOS. This presentation is about how we build and deploy it and some general considerations on the benefits of going the nix route."

#2:

"Nix-ify your Psc-Package dependencies"

by Justin Woo

Justin will present his project Psc-Package2Nix, which can generate derivations for your PureScript dependencies using information from Psc-Package. In this talk, Justin will go over what is normally involved in writing derivations, identifying how derivations commonly break and what to do to debug them. As a bonus, he will show how you can write simple derivations for things like binaries in tarballs and Perl scripts to easily consume them from your projects.
