Hi Guix,

A while ago I proposed this:

I guess it makes sense to start at the beginning :)

What are good first topics that we could introduced in self-contained
videos?  The goal is to show a useful feature (one or two closely
related features per video) without making things confusing.

Ludo recommended to take a look at the slides that people have been
using to present Guix to various audiences:

We don’t have to use them as they are, but they could provide some
inspiration to find ways to explain the essence of functional package
management.  We don’t need to start with this abstract topic.  Maybe
it’s better to show features first.

I tend to agree. Features first look like a good idea. Also, we should
emphasize the benefits of doing things the guix way :)
People might be more interested if they can see how their current
situation is made better by a tool.
What are your thoughts on this?
