GNU Guix: 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
- on Sunday, users, developers, developers-to-be, and other
contributors will discuss technical and community topics and
join forces for hacking sessions, unconference
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
email@example.com and we’ll be happy to make room for you.
We’re also looking for people to help with logistics, in particular

see you in September. Stay tuned for updates!
