Nix Flakes in Production: What, Why and How
10-16, 12:45–13:10 (UTC), Main Stream

At Serokell, we have been using Nix for over 5 years. In the last half-year, we have started an effort to use flakes to build our infrastructure and projects. In this talk, I would like to give a refresher of what flakes are, explain why we are so excited about them, and share experiences, thoughts, and advice on the matter.

Hacking on Nixpkgs, Nix, NixOS and the surrounding ecosystem for years. Helping people figure out how Nix works. Supporting Serokell build infrastructure.
