Firefox OS Workshop
Venue Innovation Centre Kosovo (ICK)
Attendees, with the help of Flamur Mavraj (the lecturer) will go through the development of a "To-Do" app with Ember.js and Firebase. How to use the Firefox OS simulator, how to deploy the app through the app manager and how to submit it in the Mozilla Marketplace.
If you’ve already built a successful PhoneGap, Chrome, webOS, Blackberry WebWorks app, or other open web app for mobile or desktop, we’d love to work with you on migrating your existing app or building a new one.
There will be 5-6 Firefox OS Developer (Keon and Peak) phones available for use and demoing during the event.
All attendees are asked to bring their own laptops, and have the Firefox OS simulator (add-on) installed on Firefox.
We'll also have a small surprise for the attendees at the end of this workshop. Be there! :)
