A meta-post on my lightning talk at NixCon 2020

Background

Much the same as the rationale behind my meta-post on my talk at PyCon India 2020, that is:

  • I would like to preserve questions
  • I would like to collect the video, slides and other miscellaneous stuff in one location 1
  • It would be nice to have my own thoughts here afterwards
