Nixpkgs support for cross-compiling has improved significantly in the last months. The concepts however are still not very well documented. The purpose of this talk/hands-on session is to give an introductions how cross-compiling is implemented and what the common caveats are, when enabling cross-compiling for a particular package. Knowledge in creating nix packages is helpful for this session.
