Introducing Snappy Open Houses! Snappy represents some new and exciting
possibilities for ubuntu. Open houses are your chance to get familiar
with the technology, while helping test and break things of course! We
plan to do an open house before each release as a chance for everyone to
interact and provide feedback and help with testing.
What is an open house?*
An 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 world.
To kick off the event, we'll host a live Q and A on ubuntuonair.com
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
What do I need to help?
You and a device capable of running snappy. This could be your desktop /
laptop, or a beaglebone / raspberry pi or another device. You don't need
a device to help as you can install snappy on your local machine via kvm.
When is it happening?
The first Open House will be July 7th at 1400. We'll be live on
ubuntuonair.com and doing some demos, testing, and a q and a. Please
stop by and help test with us, try out snappy and meet everyone. The
event will last about 2 hours.
