Daniel Foré and Cassidy Blaede dissect elementary AppCenter, the ecosystem of over 100 native open source apps, and the holistic vision of apps on elementary OS. Hear the whole story from the early days of app distribution on elementary OS, the technical foundations on which AppCenter is built, the importance of the one-true-development-path, the success of the monthly AppCenter Spotlight, and more. Learn how elementary is enabling open source app developers around the world to get paid for their work. Plus, hear feedback from app developers about the whole experience from concept to getting paid.
