Event Details

Please join us at the HiVE Vancouver on Saturday January 26, to learn, hack and celebrate the 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 the Firefox OS. We’ll help you with everything else, including 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.

Technology leaders from Mozilla will present new technology built to extend and support the new platform.

This App Day is not a competition; it's an opportunity to start creating mobile apps for Firefox Marketplace and the coming Firefox OS phone. It's also a great opportunity to demo your project for an audience of peers, as well tech leaders and innovators.

We'll introduce you to the tools you need to get started.

Look forward to seeing you.

What to bring:

Bring your Linux, Mac or Windows development machine and device(s). We will provide everything else.

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.

How to get started now (optional):
