Event Description

Buenos Aires Hackday Description Join Mozilla's Developer Engagement team on Friday, April 20th for a day of full-stack Web hackery and good times with HTML5 and friends, Apps & Games & Firefox Addons.

What to expect

We'll open with talks by developer evangelists on some of the key technology projects we work on. We'll give you an idea of what the Mozilla Developer Network is all about. By the time lunch is served you should have a good understanding of:

  • HTML5 Apps
  • Firefox Mobile & B2G
  • Firefox Addons & Developer Tools
  • Identity & Personas

In the afternoon, it will be time to get out your laptop, team up with other like-minded participants and get hacking on a project. If you have questions we'll be available to help you get going! The crew: Robert Nyman (@robertnyman), Shezmeen Prasad, Havi Hoffman (@freshelectrons), Shane Caraveo ( @mixedpuppy ), Dan Mills, and Hernan Colmeiro ( @peregrinogris )
