Reproducible Developer Shells and Containerless Stacks with Nix w/Taylor Gunnoe

January 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Developer environments often make use of containers to solve problems with portability and composability with other services, eg running services locally for testing and development, and expecting this to work across developer machines. With software and hardware increasingly becoming more complex, portability breaks down. It also becomes time consuming to re-build and re-run containers and to share those results with the rest of the team, especially given private repositories and registries. This talk will share the way that we improved these types of environments at IOG’s sidechains tribe.


TriDev is a monthly software development meetup with a wide range of topics in order to mix a wide range of people. Topics include code, IoT and maker projects, VR/AR, design, soft skills, leadership, and more.
Each meetup starts at 6PM with a few minutes of chat and networking. At 6:15 a speaker gives the talk on the topic of the night. We try to limit the talk to an hour, so at 7:15 we can start our giveaways. We try and dismiss around 7:30 to have some time for discussion or extra Q/A with the speaker for folks who want to hang around, but allow for others to get home or to other obligations if needed. After the talk, we move to Main Street Pizza where our food sponsor, TekSystems, supplies pizza (on your own for drinks)!
