Firefox OS App Day at Web Rebels

  • May 25, 2013 · 10:00 AM

As part of the Web Rebels conference, Comoyo is hosting an App Day where you can get an introduction to Firefox OS, how to make web apps, design guidelines etc.

We are happy to announce that Mozilla's evangelist Christian Heilmann Robert Nyman will be present throughout the day, and will start the program by giving an overall intro to the OS and Mozilla's long term plans and ambitions!

Bring your existing app or web site to adapt it to a web app, or start a new project. From those who register an app idea they want to work on, we will draw some lucky winners who get a Geeksphone with Firefox OS on!

You do not need a ticket for the Web Rebels conference to participate in the App Day, as it is open to everyone!

Program for the day (All presentations will be in English):

10:00 - Coffee and registration

10:30 - Intro to Firefox OS and Mozilla's plans by Christian Heilmann Robert Nyman,  Developer Evangelist at Mozilla

11:15 - How to make you first Firefox OS app by Jan Jongboom, Developer in Comoyo's Firefox OS team

12:00 - Showcasing the possibilities with HTML5
- Gaming in HTML5: how to use the WebGL standard to create graphically rich browser-based games without requiring the user to install any plug-ins by Marcus Stenbeck, Evangelist at Goo Technologies

12:30 - Lunch

13:00 - Work on your app with help from Mozilla and Comoyo mentors. Register your app idea here in advance and you might win a Geeksphone!

16:00 -> Optional beer drinking in the Mesh Café

 

We hope to see you there! :)

    Have to agree. A meetup newb says "the organisers and the speakers were so friendly and open". A great way to end the week after two days of internet mutiny.

    Another exercise in bad-assery. Loved it!

    Very nicely organized, good presentations that spurred the interest of working with and developing for FirefoxOS. Was a bit warm at times and the air ran out pretty quickly but as long as the door could be open that was'nt really an issue.

    I have multiple app ideas, should I submit that google forms thing once for each idea or try and write up all ideas in the one submission?

      One is enough, although you can still work on all of them :) The idea is to encourage people to bring something to work on!
