Snapcrafters / Ubuntu Membership Board


An exploration of my history with Linux from 1997-8, when I was 14-15, onwards. With heavy focus given to how I got involved with Snap Packaging, and the Snapcraft ecosystem. Explores how my interest in the Ubuntu Touch project and it's own app packaging mechanism lead me into discovering Snap Packaging. From there we see how I progressed into being the most well known Snap Packager and core member of the Snapcrafters project. I'll go through of the various related projects that I either am, or have been, heavily involved with, or instigated and spearheaded; including showing how Snap Authors can use GitHub Actions or GitLab CI to run my Snapcraft container images to build packages for multiple architectures that are not supported by the official Snapcraft container images (not just amd64 and i386); and my attempt at creating reusable Snapcraft recipes to ease common packaging tasks.
