NixCon 2023

09-08, 16:15–16:40 (Europe/Berlin), Lecture hall (Room 122)

The Impermanence project aims to make it easy to build systems where the root storage is erased on every boot.

In this talk, I'll go into why and how you would set up a system with ephemeral root storage and how Impermanence can help you manage the state you want to keep between reboots.

Do you allow your talk to be recorded? – yes What level of experience in Nix is the talk addressed to?
