# About

NixCon is a community-oriented conference for contributors and users of Nix and NixOS. It's about sharing experiences, inspiring people and discussing future development.

We would like to learn about how you use Nix and NixOS in your organization and what you are currently working on.

The growth of NixOS as a project brings its own challenges and we would like to know how you think the user experience can be improved and how NixOS can be scaled.

# How do I get to NixCon 2023?

  • By plane
    • Arrive at FRA (Frankfurt International Airport, not Frankfurt-Hahn (HHN)),
    • Then either take the Airliner Shuttle that goes all the way to Darmstadt city center with a stop at the main train station.
    • Or take a train from the airport’s “Regionalbahnhof” to Frankfurt (Main) Hbf and swap there to Darmstadt Hbf.
  • By train
    • Darmstadt Hbf (main train station) is reachable by RE/IC/ICE. The closest station to the venue is the Alexanderstraße/TU bus stop.
    • Locally tickets can be bought from RMV, e.g. from vending stations at most stations in Darmstadt
    • When you are in Darmstadt you can also use the Heinerliner, which is a ride pooling service bookable via an app (similar to Uber). They have a drop-off point at Kanthplatz which is next to the venue. If you have a foreign train ticket from Deutsche Bahn you even apply for a discount for a travel from and to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof.
  • By car
    • Messplatz & Nordbad, Alsfelder Str.
    • Mercksplatz, up to 4 hours (warning: you have to indicate in some way what time you parked the car, visible through the windscreen).
