Over the week-end, More than 150 people gathered in an engineering school classroom to learn, hack and celebrate:
- Learn about HTML5 and Web applications.
- Hack such applications for Firefox OS (and Firefox for Android) with the assistance of Mozilla hackers.
- Celebrate that we're changing the world with what could become a universal mobile application platform.
Mozillians (paid staff and volunteers) gave talks about mobile development with HTML5 on Firefox OS, then the hacking session started, with Mozillians helping those who wanted. In the meantime, updates on Twitter connected us with the 25 or so other App Days events taking place around the world.
At the end of the day, 36 applications were ready to be demoed, and the authors of the best demos have received a voucher for the upcoming and very cool Firefox OS developer preview phones. Of course, everyone has been handed a T-shirt!
I would like to thank all the people who helped making this amazing event possible. I won't name names because I would surely forget someone, but you know who you are. The event was a blast and it demonstrated the hunger for an Open Web mobile platform like Firefox OS!
