Firefox Mobile Add-ons Challenge

Mozdev and Mozilla Europe are teaming up to sponsor a contest for mobile add-ons. The following post is from the Mozdev blog.


Here at Mozdev, we want to see more add-ons for Firefox Mobile (aka Fennec), so we are teaming up with Mozilla Europe to make a challenge. The task is straightforward. You need only at this time to propose porting your existing add-on to Fennec, or write a new one, with a commitment to finishing it (or at least having a solid proof-of-concept) in time for the Mozilla Maemo Danish Weekend on 30-31 May.

REQUIREMENTS
(We are on a tight schedule and have logistics constraints, so apologise for the deadline and geographical restrictions)

  • Write a short proposal stating what your add-on name and current install location, why you think it would be useful to mobile browser users, and how you plan on going about implementing it. Send it to brian@mozdev.org by Friday 15 May, at 12:00 CET.
  • This challenge is only open to developers living in Europe.
  • The challenge open to current Mozdev project owners, and other developers who host their projects elsewhere.
