Canonical and Ubuntu are committed to their new products and especially to their ecosystem. If in recent months we have seen how hacks have been made to develop apps and scopes for Ubuntu Phone, Now it’s his turn to snap and his new package.
Thus, Planella announced yesterday that they have created an event that will take place on July 18 in the city of Heidelberg. Canonical’s intention is to bring this new universal package closer to developers as well as promoting the ecosystem it can provide to the end user. The event will begin on July 18 but end on July 22.For the celebration of this event, Planella has confirmed Shuttleworth assistance and the presence of developers of famous projects such as VLC, KDE, MAT or Debian. Both these developers and various users of the Ubuntu Community will demonstrate how to use Snapcraft, how snap packages work and even how to create them yourself so that the most popular applications can switch their applications to snap format, as well as create a stream that causes all new programs to be crossed in snap format.
The event in Germany will introduce the snap package development system as well as encourage them more
There is no money, nor will a Play Store or Apple Store be created, but this event in Germany continues to attract attention for developers and also encourages this new software among the German and European community. Something that other companies or mobile operating systems do not have, Such as Windows Phone, an operating system that is currently in free fall.
This event may not make all GNU / Linux applications switch to snap format, but of course it will be a first step towards a promising and much desired future by some system administrators who go crazy with the various formats and installation processes. Personally I think unification is the best thing about the snap package, though Will he really achieve this unification?
