Ever wanted to try NixOS but was too scared? Never even heard of NixOS? Good! NixOS is a unique Linux distro that breaks traditional OS concepts which might be scary at first but you'll learn to love it.
Forget what you already know about systems and come see a bunch of reasons to try and run NixOS as your primary desktop OS (and a few reasons not to). Basic Linux knowledge required - if you ever managed to install Ubuntu on your laptop, you should be ok. If you ever used Puppet, Chef or Terraform, you'll feel like at home.
The session is focused primarily on desktop use but we can explore server usage in the Q&A.
Fun fact: did you know that NixOS has (to the date) the largest number of applications available in their repos? (source: repology.org)
