Guix welcomes Outreachy and GSoC interns
We are thrilled to announce that three people will join Guix as interns over the next few months! As part of Google’s Summer of Code (GSoC), under the umbrella of the GNU Project, one person is joining us:
- Brice Waegeneire (liberdiko) will work on network booting Guix System. This will involve both making Guix System network bootable, and making it easy to set up a network boot server on Guix System.
Through Outreachy, the internship program for groups underrepresented in free software and tech, two people will join:
- Danjela will work on improving internationalization support for the Guix Data Service,
- Raghav Gururajan will work on integrating desktop environments into Guix System.
Christopher Baines and Danny Milosavljevic will be their primary mentors, and the whole Guix crowd will undoubtedly help and provide guidance as it has always done.
We welcome all three interns, exciting things are sure to come!
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 kernel Linux, 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.
