First Firefox OS App Day in North Rhine-Westphalia

(PresseBox) (Düsseldorf, ) On the 15th and 16th of November, net mobile AG hosted the first Firefox OS App Day in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) in cooperation with Mozilla. It was the next major step for the young operating system Firefox OS through the expansion of its community in the Rhine/Ruhr area.

As young as the Firefox operating system is its community, which engages with the Linux-based open source system in NRW. During the Firefox OS App Day, young developers had the opportunity to listen to technical lectures and to turn their learned lessons into practical work at the net mobile AG offices. Mozilla experts like Michael Kohler (Mozilla Representative), Marcus Ross (Author and Trainer) and Dr. Hermann Lichte (Director Innovation Management, net mobile AG) supported the teams during the implementation. Christian Heilmann, a Mozilla Developer Evangelist, answered further questions in an open Q&A session via Google Hangouts.

The Firefox OS App Day was an event in the framework of the net-m Innovation [L]app. With the net-m Innovation [L]app, net mobile AG claims and especially promotes young developers with innovative ideas. Firefox OS invites everybody who is able to use their ideas to improve the system, which is solely based on open web standards like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The source code is publicly available. Thereby, Firefox OS is the perfect environment to test and implement innovative ideas.

"We from net mobile AG believe that the operating system Firefox OS is a promising alternative to the established mobile operating systems, which we want to follow from the very beginning. Through the open and web-based architecture of Firefox OS, we are able to completely customize the system for our customers. In the currently heterogeneous field of applications, web apps will have an important potential when the standardisation of interfaces, enabling the access to phone specific features, will be finished." says Dieter Plassmann, CTO of net mobile AG.

"Mozilla already revolutionized the Internet successfully. With the development of the Internet browser Firefox, Mozilla finished the supremacy of Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Even Firefox OS, developed by the non-profit Mozilla Foundation, has the potential to revolutionize the access to the mobile Internet and therefore the smartphone market. There are many reasons to believe that Mozilla will succeed again."
