Webmardi - Firefox OS

Subject

2 years ago Mozilla introduced Firefox OS, a mobile operating system that runs on Web technologies. The top layer (GUI) is completely written in HTML/CSS/JavaScript, therefore it's easy for Web developers to create their own app and even hack on the OS itself, giving "the Web is the platform" a boost. In this talk Michael will introduce you to Mozilla, its values and will show how Firefox OS works, how you can create apps and add-ons on it and how it supports Mozilla's mission to keep the Web open.

He will also bring a few devices you will be able to play with. Even though there are no devices available in Switzerland, Michael will show how you can get Firefox OS today. The talk will have several demos you can play around with.
