Firefox OS for IoT

Firefox OS was born a little over 4 years ago, as an idea on a wiki page. And it grew ever since to millions of users, dozens of phones, and a couple of other devices, amongst them a TV. A few months ago, it pivoted to Connected Devices.

I’m going to talk about all the great things in Firefox OS (web apps, addons, web APIs) and why web developers were excited about it, and then I’m going to take a peak into the future, with IoT and connected devices that run Firefox OS under the hood.

Alex Lakatos is a Mozilla Reps Mentor and contributor to the Mozilla project for the past five years, based in London.

He’s a JavaScript developer building on the open web, trying to push it’s boundaries every day. You can check out his github profile or get in touch on twitter. When he’s not programming, he likes to travel the world, so it’s likely you’ll bump into him in an airport lounge.
