Firefox OS presented by John Jensen, Metrics Director, Mozilla

  • Jun 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • SFU Harbour Centre

This months meeting will focus on Mozilla and the new Linux-powered OS for Android phones that they've rolled out earlier this year (

Our speaker will be John Jensen, Metrics Director, from the local Mozilla office who'll be talking about the new OS. He'll explain the need for a truly open, web-based OS, the Firefox OS project's goals, its architecture, current status and provide some additional information for developers.

As usual, we'll have a technical book raffle, courtesy of O'Reilly, after the meeting and then adjourn to Steamworks for drinks and discussion.

    Thank you John for the great talk and answering ALL the questions. It is great to see that there is so much interest in Firefox OS locally. Personally I am very excited about the future of the web platform on mobile, and hence the Firefox OS.

    Very regrettably I can not attend due to a conflict. I'm very disappointed as I'd very much like to join this one.
