Hi Miles,

There are some talks described here [1]. Guix has only been around as a
project for the last ~7 years, so recency shouldn't be too much of an
issue, especially if you're interested in a more general overview.


There's also two talks [2] which I've given in the past on Guix, they're
a few years old, but I think most of the material is still correct.


The FOSDEM 2018 one is shorter, and higher level [3].


The Freenode live! 2017 one is longer and more technical [4].
