Charm Summit 2020

Canonical is hosting an event for the Juju community in Germany next month. The aim is to introduce a new charming framework for Juju. We hope that this new system will be much easier to write robust charms.

We would like to learn from people who write and maintain charms. We’re hopeful that we can make charm writing enjoyable and productive.

Great initiative @timClicks!
We’re looking forward to seeing you all there.



Two quick questions.
Will the talks be available as videos later? I would like to go but might not be able to :frowning:
Also it looks like you haven’t had this kind of summit for a while. Are they recurring annually from here on out?

Best regards,


I don’t think we were planning on filming them. It is something we can consider for the next time. The intent is very much to be more regular about them. I believe we’ve even discussed doing one again later this year.
