View Source Conference: 16 great reasons to join us in Portland

What, when, where

View Source is a brand new conference for web developers, presented by Mozilla and friends, produced by the folks who also bring you the Mozilla Developer Network, to share knowledge of the Open Web. It’s a single track event with plenty of time and space for discussion, demos, and hallway conversations. Talks will be pragmatic and inspiring, focused on topics relevant to front-end developers and people who design and build web sites and web apps.

View Source happens in Portland, Oregon, November 2-4, beginning with Ignite lightning talks on Monday evening, followed by two full days of great presenters, curated conversations, and sociable evenings. Learn best practices and new tools for creating powerful apps and websites “using modern techniques that work today and will thrive tomorrow.”

Thanks to the generosity of our awesome friends and sponsors, we’ve been able to reduce the ticket price for View Source (and refund all current ticket-holders)!

Here’s a quick look at our lineup of presenters — 16 great reasons to go! We’d love to meet you there. Don’t forget to use that MOZHACKS25 discount code for 25% off the ridiculously reasonable ticket price of $250. And if you live in the Portland area and want to lend a hand, you can volunteer for roughly half a day, and attend the full conference the rest of the time. And if you’ve got an Ignite talk proposal up your sleeve, we’d love to hear from you!

MDN sprint for better web tech resources — join in!

MDN is one of our most important resources, and the core of knowledge and sharing for developers around the world. Additionally, it’s one of the vital cornerstones for all information we share at Mozilla Hacks, so in whatever way you can take part, it is highly appreciated. – Editor’s note

Over on the Mozilla Developer Network site, this Friday and Saturday (May 31 and June 1), we’re having the latest in our series of “MDN sprints”. This is a chance for you to learn about a web development topic, and help improve the resources about it on MDN by sharing what you learn or what you already know. Please join us!

About what?

The major topical focus for this sprint is Web device APIs, which give JavaScript code access to device hardware. How about trying them out, and then writing some helpful code examples?

Another timely topic is mixed content blocking, which just arrived in the Firefox Aurora channel. Help us explain to Web developers how to fix sites so users won’t be tripped up by mixed-security content.

But those are just suggestions; any topic for Web developers or Mozilla developers is fair game. You can also find more info and ideas on the MDN sprint wiki page.

Where?

You can join in from anywhere in the world. Of course you could just dive into MDN, but part of the point of a sprint is to do it with other people. Join the #devmo channel on irc.mozilla.org to talk with other sprinters, about what you’re doing, they’re doing, or whatever. (Here’s info about IRC if you’re not familiar with it.) We might also do a Google Hangout, so ask about that when you drop in.

If you happen to be in San Francisco or Paris, we’re holding in-person meetups for this sprint on June 1st, at the Mozilla spaces in those cities. Come on by and sprint in person!

When?

The sprint officially runs from 8:00 a.m. PDT on May 31st (Starting time in your timezone) to 5:00 p.m. PDT on June 1st (Ending time in your timezone). Of course, you can start earlier or continue later, and stay for as long or as short a time as fits your schedule.

Sound interesting? Give it a try!

Join Us for Firefox OS App Days

Firefox OS App DaysIf you’re a developer interested in web technologies, I’d like to invite you to participate in Firefox OS App Days, a worldwide set of 20+ hack days organized by Mozilla to help you get started developing apps for Firefox OS.

At each App Day event, you’ll have the opportunity to learn, hack and celebrate Firefox OS, Mozilla’s open source operating system for the mobile web. Technologists and developers from Mozilla will present tools and technology built to extend and support the Web platform, including mobile Web APIs to access device hardware features such as the accelerometer. We’ll also show you how to use the browser-based Firefox OS Simulator to view and test mobile apps on the desktop.

Firefox OS App Days are a chance to kick start creation of apps for the Firefox Marketplace, and represent a great opportunity to build new apps or optimize existing HTML5 apps for Firefox OS, as well as demo your projects to an audience of peers, tech leaders and innovators.

We’re exciting to be working with our Mozilla Reps, who are helping organize these events, and with our partners Deutsche Telecom and Telefónica, who are supporting a number of them across the world.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Event Details

The agenda for these all-day events will be customized for each locale and venue, but a typical schedule might include:

  • 08:30 – 09:30 Registration. Light breakfast.
  • 09:30 – 11:30 Firefox OS, Firefox Marketplace & Mozilla Apps Ecosystem.
  • 11:30 – 12:00 Video. Q&A.
  • 12:00 – 13:00 Lunch
  • 13:00 – 17:00 App hacking.
  • 17:30 – 19:00 Demos & party.

Signing Up

Firefox OS App Days launch on 19 January and continue through 2 February, with the majority of the events taking place on 26 January. This wiki page has a master list of all the events and their registration forms, from Sao Paulo to Warsaw to Nairobi to Wellington — and many more. Find the App Day nearest you and register. (N.B. Venue capacities vary, but most are limited to 100 attendees so don’t delay.)

Getting Ready

Plan on bringing your Linux, Mac or Windows development machine and an idea for an app you’d like to develop for the Firefox Marketplace. If you have an Android device, bring it along, too. You can see the Firefox Marketplace in action on the Aurora version of Firefox for Android.

If you want to get started before the event, review the material below and bring an HTML5 app that you’ve begun and want to continue, get feedback on or recruit co-developers for.
