Canonical Announces Snappy Sprint Event in Germany to Shape Up Universal Snaps

Snaps are currently enabled by default in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, but Canonical made it possible for users of various other operating systems, including, but not limited to, Arch Linux, Debian, and elementary OS, to use it as well. Now Canonical continues its work on promoting Snap and the Snapcraft tool that lets developers package their apps as Snaps to distribute them across multiple GNU/Linux distros, and they’re announcing the Snappy sprint event in Heidelberg, Germany, from July 18 to July 22.
