Hello everybody,

Federico, Leo, Nick, Oliver and I just finished a call to talk about an
initiative called Snappy Open House we want to start with the next
release of snappy.

*What is an open house?*
With the snappy team working hard on making new releases, new features
are added, bugs are fixed and feedback is needed. The open house is a
chance to come and meet the snappy team developers and help QA test the
new image. We want to encourage the community to test with us, explore
new features, check for possible regressions and exercise the
documentation. These events are a great way to get started in the snappy

To kick off the event, we'll host a live Q and A on with
developers and show off new features in the release. We'll also
demonstrate how to flash and test the new release so the community 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

*When should it happen?*
Release Dates will be flexible; we'll need to announce as we learn when
releases will happen. We'll do it before the release to start, probably
5-7 days beforehand have the event

*What does the event look like?*

 - During the hangout:
   + cover new features
   + demo flashing and testing on a device
   + Live Q and A
 - Afterwards: discussion, help and testing on IRC channel

The notes of the call can be found at
with a bit more detail on how to run the event.

Do you have any additional thoughts, ideas, questions?

Have a great day,
