F-Droid presentation at the Linux.conf.au 2018 conferencePosted on 2018-02-02 by Licaon_Kter
In Sydney, New South Wales on Monday 22 January through to Friday 26 January, Linux.conf.au, the Australian Linux conference took place.
F-Droid’s Peter Serwylo was there Thursday, 25 Jan, presenting his “F-Droid: The private, secure, free and open app store for Android”.
The 45 minutes long talk covers how F-Droid come to be, focussing on the client, its security model, and how it is being used to ensure everyone (look out for the “collateral freedom” bit) is able to access high quality open source apps, using tools developed to make it easier for anybody to setup and run their own curated app store.
This is a great primer for new users giving them a behind the scenes view on how apps come to be, from a source code repo to their Android devices.
