Nick Desaulniers gives us an Introduction to Firefox OS!!!!!!!!!!!


On Wednesday, May 29th, 2013 at 6:30pm at the San Francisco, CA Mozilla office Game And App Devs held an event. Firefox OS stands to make the web a first class player on mobile. Break free of the walled gardens, and make great apps in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In this talk, we will go over how developers can get started developing apps that run great on Firefox OS, and how tools like Firefox's Developer Tools and the Firefox OS Simulator can lend a hand to the development process. We'll also touch upon how the mobile web differs from the always on, always connected web developers have targeted in the past.

There was a special presentation by Diane Bisgeier of Mozilla about WebFWD. This is Mozilla's accelerator to help open source and open standards startups, offering curriculum, coaching, resources and access to the Mozilla network for early-stage teams over a period of 4 months.


Nick Desaulniers is a young software engineer fighting for the open web at Mozilla.  When Nick is not helping third party developers target Firefox OS, he's hacking on the Firefox OS Simulator, contributing to Rust, or compiling C/C++ to JavaScript with Emscripten.  Nick is fond of learning numerous programming languages, just in time compilation, and high performance JavaScript.  Contributing open source software and a free Internet for all are some of the things that Nick is most passionate about.
