This page is for tracking anything related with the 2023 GNU Guix/Guile conference and hackathon on February 2nd and 3rd—right before FOSDEM2023 and the Declarative and Minimalistic Computing Languages devroom.

GNU Guix Days

Annual GNU Guix (un)conference. This event is a FOSDEM 2023 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 2nd and Friday, February 3rd 2023, 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.


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 that have already been proposed include:

  1. GNU Guix road map
  2. GNU Guix online documentation
  3. Reproducibility project
  4. Alternative target architectures (ARM, RISCV, POWER etc.)
  5. The Guix System installer
  6. Developing workflows (GNU Guix and GNU Workflow Language)
  7. Demonstration and explanation of The Perfect Setup (Emacs, Geiser, Magit)
  8. Python team maintenance and developer session
  9. Security issues (CVE-2021-27851, similar bugs, the big picture, etc) [Led by Leo F]
  10. P2P substitutes
  11. Guix in "air gapped" environments
