1) Overview of Nix and NixOS by Corbin Simpson (Acquia) (second try)

Nix is a package manager designed to perfectly isolate dependencies and yield reproducible builds. The NixOS Linux distro is built on top of Nix. We'll look at how Nix relates to the modern devops environment and how it can simplify continuous integration and configuration management.

2) "Creating Efficient Docker Images" by Isaac Stefanek

Docker can do many great things for the continuous integration and delivery process. One of the benefits that can be achieved using Docker is speeding up build and deploy times. Creating Docker files that maximize this benefit can take some work, especially if you are dealing with a bloated technology stack. We'll take a look at some common best practices that will have your Docker builds running at warp speed. The examples will be focused on building NodeJS applications, but many of the concepts will be universal for any Dockerized app.
