#JeRecrute en stage au centre Inria de #Bordeaux pour travailler sur #Guix pour le #HPC et la #recherche #reproductible.

Pour étudiant·e en license/master qui souhaite faire du #LogicielLibre !

Merci de relayer. :-)

Today is the tenth anniversary of #GNU #Guile 2.0! 🎉

It was the first milestone towards an implementation that would actually allow you to write all your application in #Scheme. Lots of good memories, personally. And it’s humbling to see just how much has been achieved since then!

Using Zabbix that was deployed on the GNU Guix build farm by Ricardo, Cuirass is now able to display the status of every connected build node.

The CPU idle time, the available memory and the free store disk space percentage are represented.

Guix has made it into Debian Unstable! This means Debian users can use Guix as a "userspace" package manager now!

This is really wonderful! Debian and Guix both care deeply about reproducibility.

This could be a big win for user freedom on both (cotd ...)

I attended most of the talks in the “Declarative” #FOSDEM track today and I enjoyed them all!

It’s been truly inspiring all along, and perhaps one of the best programs this devroom has had over the last few years. Thank you, fantastic hackers!

whew, my talk went pretty well at FOSDEM I think :D

There was a lot packed in there but it's been a fairly excited response. Yay!

In fact, all the talks in the “Declarative and Minimalistic Computing” track look exciting to me:

I’m particularly impatient to learn about @spritelyproject, to be once again amazed by #miniKanren, and to see when we can finally have sexp diffs!

Cuirass now has basic support for RSS feeds. You can receive build notifications in your favourite news aggregator.

New CI features:

* There's a new build "weather" icon to indicate if a build is still succeeding/failing or newly succeeding/failing.

* There's a build history to compare the build to its previous iterations.

New ‘guix package --export-manifest’ command emits a manifest listing all the packages in your profile. You can then pass it to ‘guix package -m’ to deploy precisely those packages:

A helper for those willing to migrate from “imperative-style” package management to declarative style.
