Description Join us during Open Source Bridge at the Hacker Lounge to learn and hack on Firefox OS, Mozilla's open source operating system for the mobile web. If you're a web developer, you’ll be right at home coding apps in HTML5, JavaScript and CSS for Firefox OS. We'll learn together how to access mobile Web APIs and how to use the Firefox OS Simulator in your desktop browser to view and test your mobile apps. We'll also have Firefox OS handsets around to check out the OS and test your apps.

What to build:

Apps. Apps. Apps. The Firefox Marketplace is looking for open web apps that work well on mobile for Firefox OS and Firefox for Android. But we're interested in all kinds of web apps. You can bring an HTML5 app that you’ve started and want to continue, finish, polish, or just present.

We'll have existing game code for you to poke around at if it's your first time.
