We will be talking about snap packages: what they are, why you should be considering them to distribute your (desktop|server|IoT) applications, and where they come from, with a fair bit of historical background including floppy disks, dial-in modems, and a retrospective of package management in Linux distributions.

Olivier Tilloy works on the Ubuntu Desktop Team at Canonical, where he maintains deb and snap packages for browsers (firefox, chromium), for thunderbird and related components, and for other desktop components.
