A technical introduction to the Snap Store Proxy

This article is more than 2 years old.


In the world of IoT, it is crucial to be fully in control of your devices. Over-the-air (OTA) updates are essential for a distributed set of devices. This must be carefully managed to ensure that an update is not pushed at a time where the device is active and operation should not be interrupted.

To enable this level of control, we have developed the Snap Store Proxy, an on-premise edge proxy to the general Snap Store that can do more than simply managing updates. To demonstrate some of these features, we are hosting a webinar to introduce you to the Snap Store Proxy.

When: June 30, 2021 | 16:00 UTC

Join myself (Holly Hall, Product Lead at Canonical) and Przemysław Suliga (Software Engineer at Canonical) to gain an understanding of the features and applications of the Snap Store Proxy, with a technical demonstration of how to set up, configure and use the proxy to control updates. We’ll start with the basics, learning about snaps and the Snap Store, and review some potential use cases of the proxy. Feel free to follow along and have a working Snap Store Proxy by the end of the session!
