Mozilla Developer Roadshow Presents: 3D on the Web and the Future of Mobile...
Tue, May 23, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Join us for a casual evening of tech talks and networking at the Mozilla Toronto Commons space. This event will start with a brief intro into our 2017 Mozilla tech road map and then deep dive into three topics about the web by Vlad, Barbara, and Mike:
Building exciting 3D experiences using the Web Platform
Mozilla is heavily invested in making the Web a first-class citizen for high quality 3D graphics. This presentation will explore the latest emerging web browser technologies, such as augmented and virtual reality. In this talk Vlad will be showcasing some of the 3D experiences built using the Web Platform APIs and tools. The main goal of this talk is to inspire you to start building your own creative experiences using open and familiar web technologies.
Vlad Filippov is a software engineer on the Firefox team at Mozilla. He is also a contributor to various open source projects. Vlad’s work has roamed widely: from desktop web development (client and server), to mobile, Android and 3D games. He loves software testing, automation and reverse engineering.

Mobile Web Browsing — what’s next for Firefox?
Mobile web is an exciting space to be in, even more so now, because last year marked a historic milestone; for the first time, StatCounter reported more people are browsing the web on their mobile devices as opposed to their desktop computers. Barbara will share some of the teams’ aspirations and ideas to build a strong and useful Firefox browser on mobile. Also, she will outline how Firefox Mobile will remain relevant on Android and iOS in the coming years.
Barbara is a happy senior product manager for Firefox Mobile, focusing on iOS/Android, and any cross-platform initiative to make the web win and fast! As a passionate product manager, Barbara always wants to understand the user’s needs and wishes. She cannot wait to listen to your ideas, likes, or dislikes about Firefox.

How to make browsers compatible with the web
Is it possible for a site written today to continue to work in 10 years? Likewise, could existing code complicate adding language features or fixing mistakes in web APIs? In this talk Mike will discuss the issues that arise when browsers attempt to clean up the web platform, either by adding new language features and DOM APIs or removing old ones — while attempting to remain backwards compatible. He'll alsoa ddress some controversial moves made by browsers to support non-standard (cough webkit prefixes) CSS and JS.
Mike Taylor is a Web Compatibility Engineer at Mozilla, working from Austin, TX. Previously he worked as a Web Opener at Opera Software, which is a funny title for pretty much the same thing. Follow Mike on Twitter @miketaylr
