I'm passionate about software and computers, which over the years has led me to get involved with robotics, GIS (geographic information systems), databases, package managers, web applications and more.

guix3

Managing software and systems is hard, but GNU Guix is a tool that could make that problem a little easier to manage.

Guix provides a way to describe packages, services and systems, then make those descriptions a reality, with a methodology inspired, and often compared to functional programming.

This approach brings with it enormous expressiveness and reliability, allowing you to avoid common problems.

We will discuss the history behind Guix, how it builds on the foundations of the Nix package manager.

We will cover what Guix can offer you, how you can use it for reproducible and reliable systems.

Finally, we will discuss how you can get involved.
