Excerpt

During this talk Schalk will go over all the bits and pieces you need, and have access to, to not only write apps but, also effectively debug and test your apps before submitting them to the Marketplace or serving them up directly from your own site.

Description

The mobile web is becoming more and more a part of our daily lives but, as web developers we have, for the most part, been left in the trenches while native app developers have had all the fun and all the hardware access they can dream of for their applications.

Well, that has finally all changed with the imminent release of FirefoxOS. FirefoxOS has been a labor of love at Mozilla and has grown into a truly amazing platform that opens the door for web app developers to get their apps in front of a large audience of users, as well as enabling them to generate revenue through Marketplace.

During this talk Schalk will go over all the bits and pieces you need, and have access to, to not only write apps but, also effectively debug and test your apps before submitting them to the Marketplace or serving them up directly from your own site.

Speaking experience

    Biography

    My name is Schalk Neethling. I am a web developer at Mozilla and live in Pretoria, South Africa and see myself as an evangelist, writer and developer with a passion for open source, web standards and accessibility.

    I have been so involved with these worlds that I feel they have become a part of me and cannot foresee a future where these topics will not be a part of my daily life.
