We have survived two testing days, and now we can safely say that it will become a Friday tradition :)
If you missed it, click the image below to watch it.
Building from what we saw on the first session, we tested the snap using a virtual machine again. But this time, we cloned it to keep a pristine machine and make following testing sessions faster. If you want to help the Ubuntu and Rocket Chat communities, this is an easy way to prepare your environment:
Once you have your clone ready, install the most recent and bleeding edge version of rocket chat with:
$ sudo snap install rocketchat-server --edge
Then you can follow this gist with the initial steps to start testing the Rocket Chat snap
Also you can test a real installation of Rocket Chat, joining our community channel, where we are available all day, every day. If you have a question, just ask. I am elopio in there.
During the session we took a look at the GitHub website, where many free software communities do their development in the open. They have a great guide to start contributing to open source projects. Go on and spread your love for free software in the form of bug reports :)
The gratitude this week goes to our newly acquired staff members Julia and Kyle, and of course to Aaron for letting us have a funny Friday evening. Make sure to take a look at the cool things he and his teammates are doing; and if you have some free time and want to join an exciting, open and nice community, give them a hand. Also try the Jitsi integration for video conference, it's mind-blowing that there are no closed components anywhere.
See you next Friday at Ubuntu On-Air.
