GNU Guix/Guile Day FOSDEM 2018
This page was for tracking anything related with the 2018 GNU Guix/Guile conference and hackathon on Friday Feb 2nd - the day before FOSDEM 2018. This event was organised by the European Guix Foundation as a FOSDEM 2018 fringe event.
GNU Guix is growing rapidly and has gone from a software packaging system to a full tool stack aimed at reproducible software deployment and development. GNU Guix is a toolkit that allows developers to integrate reproducible software deployment into their applications---as opposed to leaving it up to the user. GNU Guix is based on the GNU Guile programming language which makes it a very versatile and hackable (in the good sense) environment.
