+It’s been [ten years of
+GNU Guix](/en/blog/2022/10-years-of-stories-behind-guix/)! To
+celebrate, and to share knowledge and enthusiasm, a [birthday
+event](https://10years.guix.gnu.org) will take place on **September
+16–18th, 2022**, in Paris, France. The program is being finalized, but
+you can [already register](https://10years.guix.gnu.org)!
+![10 year anniversary artwork](/static/blog/img/10-years-of-guix_colorful-10.gif)
+This is a community event with several twists to it:
+ - Friday, September 16th, is dedicated to **reproducible research
+ workflows and high-performance computing** (HPC)—the focuses of the
+ [Guix-HPC](https://hpc.guix.info) effort. It will consist of talks,
+ experience reports by scientists and practitioners.
+ - Saturday targets **Guix and free software enthusiasts**, users and
+ developers alike. We will reflect on ten years of Guix, show what
+ it has to offer, and present on-going developments and future
+ directions.
+ - on Sunday, users, developers, developers-to-be, and other
+ contributors will **discuss technical and community topics** and
+ join forces for hacking sessions, [unconference
+ style](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference).
+[Check out the web site](https://10years.guix.gnu.org) and consider
+registering as soon as possible so we can better estimate the size of
+the birthday cake!
+If you’re interested in presenting a topic, in facilitating a session,
+or in organizing a hackathon, please get in touch with the organizers at
+`guix-birthday-event@gnu.org` and we’ll be happy to make room for you.
+We’re also looking for people to help with logistics, in particular
+during the event; please let us know if you can give a hand.
+Whether you’re a scientist, an enthusiast, or a power user, we’d love to
+see you in September. Stay tuned for updates!
