Flooding the desktop with learning tools

25 Minute Presentation Application Development and Deployment


Martín Abente Lahaye


Sugar is a unique visual environment and a set of applications for Linux. Since its original release, dozens of educators and developers have created hundreds of learning tools, most of which are only available for this platform. Today, thanks to Flatpak, developers can build applications once and reach all Linux distributions. This creates a great opportunity to share these tools and reach new audiences across the world.

In this talk I will summarize my work on bringing Sugar applications to the Linux desktop with Flatpak and Flathub. I will share my experiences through the first twenty applications, with hopes of encouraging more developers to do the same. And of course, I will present twenty new learning tools for the general Linux desktop!
