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

Summary: get started using R2D2B2G, testing you web app in the B2G desktop simulator.

How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals: R2D2B2G is a Firefox add-on that makes it very simple for web developers to test a web app using the B2G desktop simulator. It is critical that web developers are able to incrementally test their apps in the Firefox OS environment in a simple way using their desktop computer.

Expected Outcome or Deliverable: By the end of the hour, participants should be merrily hacking away on their web app and testing it in the Gaia environment of the B2G desktop simulator. As I expect setup will be very quick, I will also supply participants with sample apps for them to hack on and modify for their own purposes.

Desired Audience Type or Skill-set: web developers, basic knowledge of Firefox, HTML, JavaScript & CSS.

Equipment Needs (Video projector already included): None.
