UOS Session Roundup for Ubuntu Snappy Core

With Ubuntu Online Summit happening 3-5 November, it is really just around the corner. Time to check out the schedule and see what’s planned.

UOS is our online planning and show-and-tell event. We use a mix of Hangouts-on-Air, IRC and Etherpad to organise ourselves. It’s a great opportunity to get to know people, have your say and find out what’s planned the next weeks and months.

Register for the event at http://summit.ubuntu.com/.

This is also where you find the schedule for all the individual tracks and if you click on the sessions themselves, you can register your attendance as well, that will make it easy for you to see “your schedule” on the site and help you plan your days.

Here is a quick roundup of the sessions coming straight from the world of Snappy Ubuntu Core:

  1. 2015-11-03 15:00 UTC Testing Snappy Leo and Federico will cover both automated and manual approaches to testing snappy, and the work that goes into making sure each new version of snappy is ready to release. They will also offer advice on how you can help make snappy better!
  2. 2015-11-03 16:00 UTC Creating more Snappy frameworks Frameworks extend the functionality of Snappy Ubuntu Core systems in a vary practical way. Let’s discuss how we can bring more services to Snappy Ubuntu Core.
  3. 2015-11-03 18:00 UTC Snappy Clinic: bringing ROS apps to Snappy Ubuntu Core Snapcraft integrates building and packaging software and is what we recommend to bring software to Snappy Ubuntu Core. Snapcraft has recently seen the addition of a catkin plugin. This will make it very easy to bring ROS applications to Snappy Ubuntu Core. Check out this demo by Sergio and Ted and you’ll see just how easy it is.
  4. 2015-11-05 14:00 UTC Your feedback counts: the Snappy onboarding experience In this session we want your feedback on your Snappy and Snapcraft onboarding experience:
  • How were you welcomed into the world of Snappy? Was the documentation sufficient? Were you able to find your way around?
  • We are planning some changes to the documentation and would like to present them and get feedback.
  • If you are a device builder, we would specifically like to get your input as well, so we can improve our device builder documentation.
  1. 2015-11-05 15:00 UTC Snappy Developer Community Resources In this session we want to figure out how the Snappy developer community can interact and get support, particularly:
  • support of askubuntu/stackoverflow
  • which G+ communities/Twitter/etc to use
  • which presentation and workshop materials we want to create and share
  • how we can support people who want to represent Snappy Ubuntu Core at events/hackathons/workshops
  1. 2015-11-05 16:00 UTC Porting popular apps/software to Snappy With hardware becoming cheaper (ie Raspberry Pi, etc.) a number of apps and appliances were built, which are very popular today. It’d be great if it was easy for app developers to bring their apps to Snappy Ubuntu Core as well. Let’s figure out how developers can port them over and we can get feedback about what should be easier.

Please note: there might be last-minute changes to the schedule, so make sure stay up to date. If you have any questions, let me know.
