A SkillsCast for this session is not available.
The Nix/NixOS project is constantly growing in popularity and reach, and there is considerable overlap between the Haskell and Nix communities. What Nix shares with Haskell is that it isn't known to be easy to pick up and learn. Yet, again like Haskell, it is a very powerful tool.
In this workshop participants will be able to learn the basics of Nix, and will go from turning a cabal based project into something that Nix can build and deploy. You will look at how the Nix provided docker tooling works and how you can create a minimal docker image of your Haskell service. You will also explore Nix based development workflows and what tools you can use for that.
Workshop requirement: A Linux or OSX Laptop with Nix installed.
