Snap: Packaging and Deploying Your Software Universally Training Course

Course Code



7 hours (usually 1 day including breaks)

  • Some familiarity with container technology is helpful (Docker, Flatpak, LXC/LXD, etc.)
  • Familiarity with Linux and the command line


Snap is an open-source Linux packaging system created by Ubuntu for simplifying package installation and maintenance. It does this by resolving version-related dependency conflicts. By allowing developers to put everything their software depends on into a single package, their software can become self-contained and independent of the system on which it's installed on.

This training gives an intro into the features and highlights of Snap and draws comparisons with other similar Linux packaging systems and container software. Participants get a chance to set up, build, and release their own Snap packages.
