+
+As usual, GNU Guix will be present at [FOSDEM](https://fosdem.org/2020/)
+in the coming days with a couple of talks:
+
+ - Saturday afternoon, [*Guix: Unifying provisioning, deployment, and
+   package management in the age of
+   containers*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/guix/) by Ludovic
+   in the Containers and Security devroom, will reflect on what GNU Guix
+   has to offer to users and how it compares to other approaches—from
+   CONDA and pip to Flatpak and Docker.
+ - Sunday morning starts with [*GNU Guix as an alternative to the
+   Yocto*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/ggaaattyp/) Project by
+   Mathieu in the Distributions devroom will demonstrate how to use GNU
+   Guix to build a root filesystem for an embedded device.
+ - Later on in the HPC, Big Data, and Data Science devroom Ludovic will
+   present [*Towards reproducible Jupyter
+   notebooks*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/reprod_jupyter_guix/)
+   which will talk about Guix-Jupyter, which aims to make Jupyter
+   notebook self-contained and to support reproducible deployment.
+ - On the same devroom Efraim will present [*Sharing Reproducible Results
+   in a
+   Container*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/reprod_container/)
+   about how Guix solves the issue of reproducibility and deployment of
+   containers.
+ - Finally in the Minimalistic, Experimental and Emerging Languages
+   devroom janneke with [*GNU Mes, Scheme-only bootstrap and
+   beyond*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/gnumes/) will report
+   on three years of hard work tackling one of the most pressing
+   security issues of operating systems—the “trusting trust” attack.
+   Janneke will present exciting bootstrapping achievements and their
+   integration in Guix.
+ - Pierre will present [*Universal package & service discovery with
+   Guix*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/gnuguixpackagemanager/)
+   on how he intends to leverage the Guile programming language to boost
+   searchability of packages and services via intuitive user interfaces
+   and semantics.
+ - Pjotr will talk about why minimalism matters in computing with [*Lisp
+   everywhere!*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/lispeverywhere/)
+ - Andy will discuss the latest changes in Guile and go over the ways
+   that Guile got faster, more capable, and more minimal at the same
+   time with [*Celebrating Guile
+   2020*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/guile2020/)
+ - Last Chris Marusich will give an [*Introduction to
+   G-Expressions*](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/gexpressionsguile),
+   the magic behind them and how to use them in Guix.
+
+The [Minimalistic, Experimental and Emerging Languages
+devroom](https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/track/minimalistic_experimental_and_emerging_languages/)
+will also feature talks about about [Racket](https://racket-lang.org),
+[Lua](https://www.lua.org/), [Crystal](https://crystal-lang.org/) and
+[Nim](https://nim-lang.org/) that you should not miss under any
+circumstances!

+
+For the third time, we are also organizing the Guix Days as a [FOSDEM
+fringe event](https://fosdem.org/2020/fringe/), a two-day Guix workshop
+where contributors and enthusiasts will meet.  The workshop takes place
+on Thursday Jan. 30st and Friday Jan. 31st at the Institute of Cultural
+Affairs (ICAB) in Brussels.
+
+Again this year there will be few talks; instead, the event will
+consist primarily of
+“[unconference-style](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference)”
+sessions focused on specific hot topics about Guix, the Shepherd,
+continuous integration, and related tools and workflows.
+
+Attendance to the workshop is free and open to everyone, though you are
+invited to register (there are only a few seats left!).  Check out [the
+workshop’s wiki
+page](https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:Guix/FOSDEM2020) for
+registration and practical info.  Hope to see you in Brussels!
+
+#### About GNU Guix
+
+[GNU Guix](https://www.gnu.org/software/guix) is a transactional package
+manager and an advanced distribution of the GNU system that [respects
+user
+freedom](https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-system-distribution-guidelines.html).
+Guix can be used on top of any system running the kernel Linux, or it
+can be used as a standalone operating system distribution for i686,
+x86_64, ARMv7, and AArch64 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](https://www.gnu.org/software/guile)
+programming interfaces and extensions to the
+[Scheme](http://schemers.org) language.
