+As usual, GNU Guix will be present at [FOSDEM](
+in the coming days with a couple of talks:
+ - Saturday afternoon, [*Guix: Unifying provisioning, deployment, and
+   package management in the age of
+   containers*]( by Ludovic
+   in the Containers and Security devroom, will reflect on what GNU Guix
+   has to offer to users and how it compares to other approaches—from
+   CONDA and pip to Flatpak and Docker.
+ - Sunday morning starts with [*GNU Guix as an alternative to the
+   Yocto*]( Project by
+   Mathieu in the Distributions devroom will demonstrate how to use GNU
+   Guix to build a root filesystem for an embedded device.
+ - Later on in the HPC, Big Data, and Data Science devroom Ludovic will
+   present [*Towards reproducible Jupyter
+   notebooks*](
+   which will talk about Guix-Jupyter, which aims to make Jupyter
+   notebook self-contained and to support reproducible deployment.
+ - On the same devroom Efraim will present [*Sharing Reproducible Results
+   in a
+   Container*](
+   about how Guix solves the issue of reproducibility and deployment of
+   containers.
+ - Finally in the Minimalistic, Experimental and Emerging Languages
+   devroom janneke with [*GNU Mes, Scheme-only bootstrap and
+   beyond*]( will report
+   on three years of hard work tackling one of the most pressing
+   security issues of operating systems—the “trusting trust” attack.
+   Janneke will present exciting bootstrapping achievements and their
+   integration in Guix.
+ - Pierre will present [*Universal package & service discovery with
+   Guix*](
+   on how he intends to leverage the Guile programming language to boost
+   searchability of packages and services via intuitive user interfaces
+   and semantics.
+ - Pjotr will talk about why minimalism matters in computing with [*Lisp
+   everywhere!*](
+ - Andy will discuss the latest changes in Guile and go over the ways
+   that Guile got faster, more capable, and more minimal at the same
+   time with [*Celebrating Guile
+   2020*](
+ - Last Chris Marusich will give an [*Introduction to
+   G-Expressions*](,
+   the magic behind them and how to use them in Guix.
+The [Minimalistic, Experimental and Emerging Languages
+will also feature talks about about [Racket](,
+[Lua](, [Crystal]( and
+[Nim]( that you should not miss under any
+![Guix Days
+For the third time, we are also organizing the Guix Days as a [FOSDEM
+fringe event](, a two-day Guix workshop
+where contributors and enthusiasts will meet.  The workshop takes place
+on Thursday Jan. 30st and Friday Jan. 31st at the Institute of Cultural
+Affairs (ICAB) in Brussels.
+Again this year there will be few talks; instead, the event will
+consist primarily of
+sessions focused on specific hot topics about Guix, the Shepherd,
+continuous integration, and related tools and workflows.
+Attendance to the workshop is free and open to everyone, though you are
+invited to register (there are only a few seats left!).  Check out [the
+workshop’s wiki
+page]( for
+registration and practical info.  Hope to see you in Brussels!
+#### 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 kernel Linux, 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.
