This page is for tracking anything related with the 2024 GNU Guix/Guile conference and hackathon on February 1st and 2nd—right before FOSDEM2024 and the Declarative and Minimalistic Computing devroom.

GNU Guix Days

Annual GNU Guix (un)conference. This event is a FOSDEM 2024 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.


Thursday, February 1st and February 2nd 2024, the two days before FOSDEM

Coffee at 9:30AM, and starting at 10AM.


Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICAB) Rue Amedee Lynen 8 1210 Brussels (map), Belgium.


The ICAB is unfortunately not well suited for wheelchairs as there are many steps between rooms.


We will have some talks in the morning and hacking and discussions the rest of the day. Two days of GNU Guix bliss.

The event targets an audience of Guix developers and users.

In pure “unconference” style, the program will be made by participants as we go, with hands-on sessions organized in sub-groups. Possible session topics:

  1. GNU Guix status update & road map
  2. GNU Guix online documentation
  3. Alternative target architectures (ARM, RISCV, POWER etc.)
  4. Project governance & facilitation: RFC process, teams, maintenance, release management
  5. Sustaining our infrastructure: planning to keep qa.guix, data.guix, ci.guix, etc. afloat
  6. Spritely, Guix, and Guile—the amazing trio!
  7. Next steps for GSoC paramaterized packages
  8. Re-imagining the Guix CLI, now with actual forethought and consistency!

Add your own topics above!
