Celebrating 10 years of Guix in Paris, 16–18 September
It’s been ten years of GNU Guix! To celebrate, and to share knowledge and enthusiasm, a birthday event will take place on September 16–18th, 2022, in Paris, France. The program is being finalized, but you can already register!
This is a community event with several twists to it:
- Friday, September 16th, is dedicated to reproducible research workflows and high-performance computing (HPC)—the focuses of the Guix-HPC effort. It will consist of talks and experience reports by scientists and practitioners.
- Saturday targets Guix and free software enthusiasts, users and developers alike. We will reflect on ten years of Guix, show what it has to offer, and present on-going developments and future directions.
- on Sunday, users, developers, developers-to-be, and other contributors will discuss technical and community topics and join forces for hacking sessions, unconference style.
Check out the web site and consider registering as soon as possible so we can better estimate the size of the birthday cake!
If you’re interested in presenting a topic, in facilitating a session,
or in organizing a hackathon, please get in touch with the organizers at
firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to make room for you.
We’re also looking for people to help with logistics, in particular
during the event; please let us know if you can give a hand.
Whether you’re a scientist, an enthusiast, or a power user, we’d love to see you in September. Stay tuned for updates!
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, AArch64 and POWER9 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.
