Introducing Snappy Open Houses! Snappy represents some new and exciting possibilities for ubuntu. A snappy open house is your chance to get familiar with the technology while helping test and break things ! We plan to do an open house before each release as a chance for everyone to interact and provide feedback and help with testing. As such, this is a great way to get started in the snappy world!
So what exactly do I mean by an open house? We want to encourage the community to
test with us, explore new features, check for possible regressions and
exercise the documentation. An open house is a chance to come and meet the snappy team developers and help QA test the new image.
During the open house, we'll host a live broadcast on ubuntuonair.com. As part of the broadcast, we'll speak with some of the developers behind snappy and show off new features in the upcoming release. We'll also
demonstrate how to flash and test the new release so you can
follow along and help test. Finally we'll answer any questions you have and stick around on IRC for a bit to discuss any issues found during
In other words, it's time intended for you to come and try out snappy! I know what you are thinking, "I don't have a cool IoT device to run snappy with". You are in luck! You can run snappy on your desktop and laptop. You don't need a device as you can install snappy on your local machine via kvm. If you do have a device, bring it and prepare to have some fun!
The first of these snappy open houses will be July 7th at 1400 UTC. Please
stop by and help test with us, try out snappy, and meet the snappy team!

Mark your calendars and see you next Tuesday!
