# IEEE SMC IT - Open source workshop¶

Nyx was presented during the open-source workshop of the IEEE Space Mission Challenges in IT (SMC IT) conference! This is very exciting as it's the first public presentation of Nyx. Thanks to Amalaye Oyake from Blue Origin for that opportunity!

For this presentation, I wrote up a quick introduction to using Nyx for orbit definition and propagation using version 1.0.0-beta.1. As of today, 1.0.0-beta.2 is very close to being released, over 90% of the work being done.
