Ubuntu partner programmes

Ubuntu software partners

Ubuntu has a thriving software ecosystem, with thousands of applications available for the PC, the server and the cloud — targeting both the enterprise and consumer markets.

We offer a range of benefits for ISVs looking to formalise their work with Ubuntu, through Canonical. As a certified partner, you’ll get inside information on forthcoming Ubuntu developments, assistance in testing and optimising your applications with Ubuntu and OpenStack — and priority access to Ubuntu engineers.

App developer partners

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully. Whether you’re building for desktop, cloud, or the Internet of Things, publishing as a snap will keep users up to date and make system configuration issues less likely, freeing you to code more and debug less.

Snapcraft, the open source tool to publish snaps, picks up from your existing build artefacts or language of choice, be it Python, Go, C/C++, Node.js, or even .NET. With 20 minutes you can have your first app built and released in the Snap Store.
