OSFC 2019 – Introducing the Linux Vendor Firmware Service

A few months ago I gave a talk at OSFC.io titled Introducing the Linux Vendor Firmware Service.

If you have a few minutes it’s a really useful high-level view of the entire architecture, along with a few quick dives into some of the useful things the LVFS can do. Questions and comments welcome!
