Linux is a wonderful operating system.

Updating a whole machine can often take less than 10-15 minutes.

There are tens of thousands of packages in Linux to choose from, but sometimes there is dependency hell, and anyone who does Python will know what that’s like. Hell!

Do you want to install a critical application, but the library is missing or conflicts with some of your existing software and can’t be installed?

Snaps are a multi-platform solution, and tonight we are incredibly lucky to have an expert from Canonical, Igor Ljubuncic, explaining their benefits, showing off hard-core Linux tricks and providing a tutorial on how to create snaps.

Apparently, the swag in our free raffle will be very good. Hint hint.

There is nice food too.
