GNOME Software: you'll never guess what comes next

Kalev Lember

GNOME Software is an project that started life as an application installer, and over time picked up features such as updating system firmware, distribution upgrades, installation of fonts, codecs, language packs, and handling RPM files and Flatpak bundles. With screenshots, long descriptions and now user-submitted ratings and reviews we're on parity with several other appstores like the Google play store and provide a fast, stable and beautiful software center. In this talk I will explain about how we built this beast, show off some new features and also talk about the future. I'll allow lots of time for questions and comments.
