Today we had our first testing day. We will keep doing this every Friday, and at the end of the session I will post a summary with links to follow up and learn more about the subject in case somebody is interested.
You can watch the video by clicking the image below.
For this session we had Kyle Fazzari talking about his work as the maintainer of the Nextcloud snap.
We tested the snap using a virtual machine. To set one up you can use the following guides:
After the virtual machine is ready, Nextcloud can be installed in there by just running in the terminal:
$ sudo snap install nextcloud
If you want to test an unreleased and unstable version to help the Nextcloud developers, you can add the flag --edge or --beta to that command.
I wrote some steps to guide you getting started with the testing in this gist.
And finally, if you want to join our community, we are usually in Rocket Chat. You can join the #community, #qa or #snapcraft channels, or any other that catches your attention.
Special thanks to Julia and CoderEurope for joining us during the session. And of course to Kyle and the Nextcloud community for this amazing piece of free software that encourages everybody to take control over their data, in a really simple way.
You are all invited to join us the next time, which will be Friday, December 2nd, again at Ubuntu On-Air. The time and theme will be announced soon. Or at least before it starts.
