This page is for tracking anything related with the 2018 GNU Guix/Guile conference and hackathon on Friday Feb 2nd - the day before FOSDEM2018.

GNU Guix/Guile day

This event is organised by the European Guix Foundation as a FOSDEM 2018 fringe event


GNU Guix is growing rapidly and has gone from a software packaging system to a full tool stack aimed at reproducible software deployment and development. GNU Guix is a toolkit that allows developers to integrate reproducible software deployment into their applications—as opposed to leaving it up to the user. GNU Guix is based on the GNU Guile programming language which makes it a very versatile and hackable (in the good sense) environment.


Fri 2 February 2018, from 9:00 hrs - 18:00 hrs.
