    I’m glad to see that this year’s SoN has created an official playlist. Last year’s was simply an open drive that one of the participants had hosted themself.

    I do think that, to keep in the spirit of SoN, it should also be available on a FLOSS video hosting instance. But I’m not participating this year so feel free to ignore my opinion :-).

      We are looking into it actually. Currently we already stream to our own Owncast instance, https://summer.nixos.org/live/ . But it’s also a bit of a test run for us. 😉

      If you have any suggestions, please shoot!

      Sounds fun. If I was more experienced with Nix I’d be interested in the team lead, but I’m looking forward to my relaxed summer and don’t want to commit to full time.

      The pages don’t say, but is this open to Americans despite the funding sources?

        Yes! Last year there were 10 spots for people that wanted to participate from America. We’re aiming for the same amount of participants as last year. So I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up with 10 spots again.

        If you’re also interested in last years’ Summer of Nix, you can read up on it here. I can also tell from personal experience, as I participated last year, that I had the pleasure to work with someone from across the North Atlantic Ocean :).
