This Is the F-Droid You’re Looking For

Introduction to F-Droid

Link: TheAlternative



As you will notice in the list above, I will be giving a talk about F-Droid next Monday (one week from now)!

It will be at The Alternative, a student organisation at my university (ETH Zürich) that does all kind of FOSS stuff (talks, Linux install events, …).

The target audience are both people who don’t yet use F-Droid (part 1 of the talk) but also people who want to publish their Android apps on F-Droid or contribute to F-Droid directly (part 2 of the talk). Of course, all of that you can also learn from reading the docs, but sometimes it’s nice to listen to a talk instead.

The slides are on Gitlab, so feel free to give feedback, point out anything that is worth mentioning, or that I got wrong.
Also feel free to reuse the slides if you want to give a similar talk at your local FOSS group!

That’s also why I created this list and wiki topic. While preparing my talk, I was searching for previous talks to get some inspiration.


Nice, great that you are doing the talk! And nice idea to gather up talk materials. Anything I’ve made is available to anyone freely, under the DFSG license they choose. Here are some links:
