+title: Announcing the first online Guix Day Conference
+date: 2020-10-16 00:00
+author: Guix Hackers
+slug: virtual-guix-days-announce-1
+tags: Conference, Community
+The Guix hackers are very happy to announce the first online Guix Day
+Conference on **Sunday November, 22nd**.  This conference is open to everyone
+and will be held online. Want to speak?  Submit your proposal!
+Important dates:
+1. **November 6th**: Deadline for talks proposal.
+1. **November 14th**: Deadline for releasing your pre-recorded talks.
+1. **November 16th**: Release of the schedule.
+1. **November 22nd**: Conference day!
+The agenda of the day is:
+ - pre-recorded talks with live question and answer sessions
+ - birds of a feather (BoF) sessions
+ - lightning round talks, if possible
+ - hack together
+*There will be no presentation on the 22nd!* And **no registration fee**.
+##### Until November 6th: talks proposal
+Propose your talks by sending them to ``.  Feel free to drop
+in `#guix` on to discuss what you would like to talk about
+before submitting. :)
+Please describe with 10 lines or more what your proposal is about.  Even if it
+is a BoFs topic (smaller group who want to talk about specific topics).
+Once you have sent your proposal, you will be notified in the coming days
+whether we would like to have your talk be part of the Guix Day.
+Good topics include your own experience with Guix and what you feel important
+to share with your other fellows, for example a non-exhaustive topic list is:
+installer, Maven build system, Data Service, GNU Hurd and cross-compilation,
+Cuirass and continuous integration, authentication, secret services, website
+translation, translation infrastructure,…  It is a single day so we won't be
+able to cover all. ;-)
+##### November 9th-14th: prepare your talk
+The aim of the pre-recorded talk is to demonstrate new features, what you are
+hacking on, introduce the subject for easing the live question and answer
+sessions or BoFs.  These pre-recorded talks should be **15-45 minutes
+long**.  Feel free to ask if you need help with the recording.
+You are free to choose whichever storage platform you want (e.g., your own
+website, a peertube instance, a nextcloud instance, etc.), but we will need to
+have access to the original file so we can publish it later on
+[](  Your video must be
+released under a license that at least allows anyone to copy and share it, for
+any purpose.
+You will have to release the video publicly before November 14th, so everyone
+has a chance to see it before the conference.  If you are not able to do so
+(for instance your server cannot handle a huge load), you can alternatively
+send us a private link to the video and we will upload it on
+[](  If you decide to do so,
+you will need to have the video ready by November 12th.
+##### November 16th-22nd: watch the talks
+Be sure to watch the pre-recorded talks before the conference.  There will be
+no presentation on the 22nd.
+##### November 22nd: participate
+Coming soon!  Stay tuned.
+#### Code of Conduct
+This online conference is an official Guix event.  Therefore, the [Code of
+applies.  Please be sure to read it beforehand!
+#### About GNU Guix
+[GNU Guix]( is a transactional package
+manager and an advanced distribution of the GNU system that [respects
+Guix can be used on top of any system running the Hurd or the Linux
+kernel, 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](
+programming interfaces and extensions to the
+[Scheme]( language.
