See Snappy Ubuntu Core on ARTIK!

During November 10-12, Canonical and Samsung will be at ARM TechCon 2015 to show off the power of Canonical’s Snappy Ubuntu Core on ARTIK 5 and ARTIK 10. We will demonstrate how combining Samsung ARTIK and Snappy Ubuntu Core results in an easy-to-use development platform for internet-connected devices, enabling developers to lower costs and shorten their time to market.

For this demo, ARTIK will be running Snappy Ubuntu Core, a lightweight version of Ubuntu featuring transactional updates and designed specifically for clouds and devices. Snappy Ubuntu Core enables developers to write apps once and deploy their offerings across a host of devices. It also supports a variety of languages and allows existing apps and code to be ported seamlessly. Plus, it’s easy to maintain once apps are developed. Transactional updates make it easy to upload new versions, and app isolation ensures no library conflict.

“Snappy Ubuntu Core gives you a single platform on which to develop, test, and publish your applications. From device to cloud, it benefits from the same APIs and receives the same security updates. We’re excited to be here at ARM TechCon and to be able to showcase this wave of developer innovation with Ubuntu Core,” says Maarten Ectors, VP of IoT at Canonical.

Beyond the joint demo, Canonical will be presenting Snapcraft, the developer tool that makes it easy to create a “snap” for Ubuntu Core. Snapcraft is a one-stop tool that makes packages of existing applications, or “snaps”, from source or classic Ubuntu packages.

To see Samsung ARTIK running Snappy Ubuntu Core, come to ARM TechCon 2015 from November 10-12 in Santa Clara, California. We look forward to meeting you!
