Maarten Ectors - Vice President IoT at Canonical / Ubuntu
In a world of 100s of super computers in your home and office there will be three major issues: Security, Management, & Monetization.
We have been working on trying to solve these three problems and we open sourced what we have so far. Ubuntu Core is a special version of Ubuntu, specifically for devices. You can run apps on top called snaps. A snap is a new packaging format for applications on Linux. Every snap assumes third-party code is a criminal until proven innocent. Unlike our previous packaging (Debian packages) which assumed all code was innocent until proven guilty. So from a security perspective if your code will control for example a Bluetooth device and all of a sudden changes its mind [or has a malicious code injection!] then the operating system will not allow it. You can easily create snaps via Snapcraft in any language with any SDK or packaging tool. We don't believe in lock-in so the snap format, the snapcraft tool and the snap daemon are all open source and we have worked with other operating systems on making it work.
One of the key features of snaps is that developers can decide when their code is ready to go from nightly build (edge), to beta, to release candidate and finally to stable. This allows the developer to automate testing and very easily deliver security and other types of patches. You upload a new version to stable and all production devices will automatically start updating.
