Join GNU Guix through Outreachy

We are happy to announce that GNU Guix offers a three-month paid internship through Outreachy, the inclusion program for groups traditionally underrepresented in free software and tech.

The initial application deadline is on Feb. 22, 2021 at 4PM UTC.

For further information, check out the timeline, information about the application process, and the eligibility rules.

If you’d like to contribute to computing freedom, Scheme, functional programming, or operating system development, now is a good time to join us. Let’s get in touch on the mailing lists and on the #guix channel on the Freenode IRC network!

Prospective mentors and applicants are encouraged to collect the draft proposals on the Guix Outreachy 2021 summer ideas page.

In the ongoing round, we have the pleasure to work with Magali Lemes as an Outreachy intern, who is working on the guix git log command.

About GNU Guix

GNU Guix is a transactional package manager and an advanced distribution of the GNU system that respects user freedom. Guix can be used on top of any system running the Hurd or the Linux kernel, or it can be used as a standalone operating system distribution for i686, x86_64, ARMv7, and AArch64 machines.

In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection. When used as a standalone GNU/Linux distribution, Guix offers a declarative, stateless approach to operating system configuration management. Guix is highly customizable and hackable through Guile programming interfaces and extensions to the Scheme language.
