The official NixOS Community Space has rooms on many Nix topics.

Matrix Spaces are a beta feature, not supported by all clients or homeservers. If your client doesn't support spaces see MatrixRooms for a list of rooms.

IRC

There is a Nix presence on the Libera.Chat IRC network; the primary user channel is #nixos, and the development channel is #nixos-dev.

Previously, the Nix channels were on Freenode, a different IRC network. There are public logs from the Freenode versions of these channels. There is no logging set up on the Libera.Chat versions (yet).
