What is this event about?

The second "Firefox OS App Day Switzerland" provides an introduction to dive into application development for Firefox OS. Additionally we will provide an overview of the progress made since our last Firefox OS App last year. If you are a web developer you're ready to start - there's nothing you need more.

If you are a web developer interested in creating apps for mobile devices you are at the right place. Talks in the morning will introduce into developing mobile web apps for Firefox OS using Mozilla development tools. Developers who are already familiar with Firefox OS and its ecosystem certainly can already start developing their apps in the morning. Hack space will be provided.
