Kurt Kremitzki (he/him)


FreeCAD is a cross-platform 3D design tool, which means a great deal of complexity. The scope of this project means community maintainers need all the firepower they can get. This talk introduces FreeCAD and explains how Canonical services and tooling like Launchpad and Snaps are useful & necessary on top of the base Debian package experience in Ubuntu. Attendees will also learn how to apply this knowledge to make it easier to share their own development work or contribute to Ubuntu QA efforts.
