Intro to the Marshmallow Permission System

by Philippe Breault and Etienne Caron

The new Android Marshmallow permissions model is a big change for the platform. From now on, users will be able to decide exactly what permissions they want to allow applications to use. With this change comes a series of new challenges (and opportunities) for Android developers to handle (and explore).


Hey There! My name is Philippe Breault, I am a software developer living in Montréal (Canada) and my job/hobby is Android. I have been working on the Android platform since 2010 and I hope that sharing what I have learned will help people get proficient in Android faster!
