Leeds IoT meetup on 24 July 2017 - software updates with Canonical Snap

We're looking forward to attending the next Leeds IoT meetup on 24 July at FutureLabs. Alan Pope from Canonical (makers of Linux distro Ubuntu) will be speaking on how they deliver software at scale. This is relevant to IoT because the current methods of software updates for connected devices are not standardised and often poorly executed by manufacturers.T10fnMP9_400x400Thanks to Will Newton of IoT wizards for putting together the meetup!
