Facilitator(s): Jorge Villalobos

Area of Contribution: Add-ons

How are you currently involved with the community?:

I am the technical contact point for the add-on developer community, and also co-lead the new Mozilla Costa Rica community.

Location of Work: Costa Rica

Talk Length (please choose between 30, 60, 90, 120 minutes): 60 or 90 minutes


The talk will consist of a brief presentation about add-ons for Firefox on Android, pointing to documentation and prebuilt add-ons that can be used as templates for development. Then the participants will be asked to install and try these add-ons on their devices, and then hack them in various ways. Most of the session should be dedicated to hacking and answering questions.

How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals:

This session is meant to empower people to extend Firefox on Android and make it their own.

Expected Outcome or Deliverable:

Participants should leave the session with a set of tools that allow them to create useful add-ons for Firefox on Android. They should have at least tried to create their own version of the sample add-ons shown in the presentation.

Desired Audience Type or Skill-set:

Add-on developers and web developers. Some JavaScript and HTML knowledge is necessary.

Everyone is invited, but if you want to participate creating add-ons, you'll need an Android device that runs Firefox and a laptop to code on. It will save you some time if you Set up your Android environment before the talk.
