Aw snap? Oh snap! Software distribution made easy - dvorana A-202


In recent years, distribution-agnostic packaging formats have become more popular, finding audience side by side with the classic repositories. Users can often see immediate advantages to using their software plug-n-play style, but developers and system administrators may be more hesitant. The big question is, how does it all work?

This workshop unveils the magic behind snaps - confined, standalone Linux applications bundled with all the necessary dependencies to run independently. It covers the fundamentals like snap service, snap file format, and Snap Store, but also goes into details on how to package and distribute software with snapcraft, from desktop to cloud.

- Attendees should bring their own laptops - with a flavor of Linux installed.
- There will be no power outlets available so please charge your laptop
- Duration: 2 hours
