Hello Guix!

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Guix; what if we used that as a
pretext to join forces and organize “special events” throughout the
year?  Obviously the Guix Days are already a great start!

Things that come to mind:

  • Install parties.  After the upcoming release, interested folks could
    team up with their local GNU/Linux user groups, or with colleagues,
    friends, enthusiasts to organize install parties.  We could collect
    those events on a web page.  That’s a great way to connect people,
    to debunk fears and myths, and also to get invaluable feedback that
    will allow us to improve the installation process.

  • Talks.  Presenting Guix to an audience who doesn’t know about it:
    could be again your local GNU/Linux user group, colleagues, sysadmin
    or techie conferences, scientific conferences, etc.  There are many
    people here who could do a great job at introducing Guix and sharing
    their own experience!

  • Articles.  Get an introductory article in your local GNU/Linux or
    sysadmin magazine or in some on-line magazine or specialized
    journal!

  • Hackathons.  Organizing hackathons focused on specific topics: again
    it could be local hackathons focused on getting software your
    organization or friends need packaged for Guix, it could be on-line
    hackathon focused on core features, Software Heritage and Disarchive
    integration, scientific workflows, documentation (like the recent
    meetups jgart & Julien organized!), translation, etc.

  • Sharing enthusiasm, freedom, and collective work!  :-)

Icing on the cake if Luis, Ricardo, and other artists among us come up
with some sort of a birthday logo, music, and whatnot!

What do people think?

Ludo’.

I think its sounds as great idea to celebrate ten of Guix by doing some 
or all of the activities you list Ludovic. Something that may could 
initiate some in opinion needed hope and enthusiasm for Guix and 
*GNU/Linux systems in general. Building on the great work and efforts 
many people have done over last ten [!] years aiming (and some degree 
succeeded) to from my understanding build a solid, extensible computer 
system centered around GNU software and the principle of freedom for 
computer users with a varying needs.

Hello Ludo,

If it helps, feel free to use HSBXL in Belgium as a node.
=> hsbxl.be/

While not a spacious or plush as the Guix Days location, it has ClubMate and better ICT support.

I can be onsite 24/7 whenever you need access.

Great idea. 

In 2014 I watched your first presentation of Guix at FOSDEM. I was
sold on the spot! We use Guix containers and services through all our
deployments - it is a massive success story.

Onwards and upwards!

I still remember sending my first patch in 2014 and the happiness of 
getting it accepted. I am using Guix everywhere and has made my life so 
much simpler to experiment with things.

I love the Guix Community! Looking forward to another 10 year and beyond :D

Good idea!

Perhaps we could sprinkle ad-hoc presentations on topics of interest
throughout the year.  I'm not that much of a presentation person, but it
seems it'd liven the year which will probably see us more contained than
we'd like.

Thanks for the offer!  I hope we can have an in-person event sometime
this year in Europe (and hopefully others can organize similar events on
other continents).
