Venue TBD

AGENDA:

Participants will go through the development of a simple web app (using AngularJS), test out the app on the Firefox OS simulator and go through how to submit the app in the Firefox OS Marketplace.

After, participants will then proceed to develop web apps (or hack existing web apps) of their own (individually or preferably in teams) through the course of the day. At the end of which the apps will be reviewed and suggestions for changes and improvements given by fellow participants.

If you've already built a successful open web app (for mobile or desktop), we'd love to work with you on migrating your existing app or building a new one.

PLEASE:

  1. All attendees are asked to bring their own laptops
  2. Have the Firefox OS simulator (add-on) installed on Firefox.
  3. If possible, have ideas of some cool apps you'd like to develop (you can work individually or as a team)
