Join Mozilla Mobile developers for a hack day focused on creating mobile browser based games and firefox mobile add-ons. The day will start out with a couple quick talks to help people get started with technologies they might not be familiar with. Mark Finkle will walk everyone through how to create restartless (aka bootstrapped) add-ons in the new native front end of of Firefox for Android. Vladimir Vukicevic will show off some of Firefox for Android's capabilities as a gaming platform. Finally Pascal Rettig will talk about tips and tricks for HTML game development. Also, the entire Mozilla Mobile team will be on hand to answer questions as well as members of the Graphics and Layout teams.
Following the presentations will be pitch time. If you have an idea, you get 1 minute to pitch it to the group and get people excited. We'll then break for lunch and let people form teams around those ideas. The rest of the day we'll spend cranking out code. Finally, to wrap up, the teams will have an opportunity to show off what they've created at the end of the day.
