LCA 2018: F-Droid: The private, secure, free and open app store for Android

talk, lca

To quote F-Droid’s Licaon Kter:

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.
