Event Overview

In the 4 day long expo we had visitors from a varied background and to our surprise most of them were hardcore Firefox users. It was a great experience interacting with Mozilla product users. The Firefox OS stood like a star at the expo. Phones from our hardware partners Spice, Alcatel, Intex and Zen were put on display so that people could have hands on experience while we explained them about Firefox OS.

Goodies were given to those who showed great interest in developing apps on Firefox OS. On knowing that Firefox OS app development can be done by using text editor and the apps are based on HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript only, many students and young developers showed great interest in developing apps. Looking at their interests we’ve planned to organize a dedicated Firefox OS hack-a-thon very soon in Pune city.
