Introduction to NixOS

Charles Strahan


Introduction to NixOS

WE ARE MEETING AT CIVIC HALL!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open Wednesday Nov 2nd, 2016, 4:30pm. 

Introduction to NixOps - NixOS

This talk is an introduction to NixOS, a Linux distribution that leverages a purely functional package manager called Nix. We'll take a look at how NixOS packaging and configuration management works, and see how its unique design sets it apart in terms of reliability.

There will be plenty of time for questions!


# Relevant links

Join us afterwards at Jake's Saloon where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. Jake's Saloon is located at 206 W. 23rd Street.
