Hey everyone, following on from yesterday we've collated a list of links to help you get started :)

Start here:

Guide to hacking Gaia

Already got a web app or want to install your app to your device?
Find out about web apps and what new APIs are available.
- https://developer.moz...­

Try out Firefox OS and how to test your app:

You have quite a few options here!

- FirefoxOS Simulator
- This is new and probably the easiest/quickest way of trying out FirefoxOS
-http://www.blueskyonmars.com/2012/11/08/r2d2b2g-is-becoming-the-firefox-os-simulator/­

- Use Mozilla Firefox Nightly:
- https://wiki.mozilla.org/Gaia/Hacking#Firefox_Nightly­
- A pretty simple way of checking if your app will work on the phone
- You can use the awesome Mozilla Development Tools to debug (not that you'll need them ;))

- Use B2G on your desktop:
- http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/b2g/nightly/­
- Same technology that you have in your phone but for desktop
- Building Blocks:
- http://telefonicaid.github.com/Gaia-UI-Building-Blocks/index.html­

Information about Firefox OS:

Firefox OS homepage
Firefox OS wiki

Gaia: the frontend:

Gaia is the frontend of FirefoxOS, it is a set of JavaScript apps that behave like a phone, all made with Mozilla technologies \o/

- Get it at https://www.github.co...­

The simulator is the easiest way at the moment, though we will have devices you can test against at the event :)
