Hello Guix!

This year is Guix’s ten year anniversary and also a time when in-person
meetings are again possible in some regions of the world, so… Simon and
myself have tentatively scheduled an in-person meeting in Paris, France,
from September 16th to 18th!  \o/

We have been in contact with IRILL¹, which kindly offers to host the
event in its offices; we are discussing to confirm the details.

The way we see it, it would go as follows:

  1. Friday will be dedicated to uses of Guix for reproducible research
     workflows, primarily with talks from people with experience in the

  2. Saturday and Sunday will be more informal, with a mixture of talks,
     tutorials, hacking sessions, install parties, or really whatever
     you’d like to see happen—including having a birthday cake.  :-)

We invite y’all to share ideas and suggestions: things you’d like to
talk about or hear about, hacking sessions you’d like to have with
others, things you’d like to do to introduce Guix to newcomers.

For this to work, we’ll need your help: to define the program (looking
for speakers, for facilitators for work groups or hacking sessions), for
the logistics (especially if you live in Paris, but also: setting up
video capture and publication, live streaming), setting up a web page,
and so on.

Every contribution counts; “the more each one of us does, the less any
single person will have to do”, to paraphrase Gunner, as those who
attended R-B summits in the past will remember.  So don’t shy away and
get in touch with us on this list or through the following private alias:

I think this is a great opportunity to meet old friends, to put faces on
the IRC nicknames of new friends, to share skills and have a good time.

Feedback very much welcome!  :-)
