Firefox 4 Beta for Android and Maemo has been released into the wild. Pretty soon it will be available for download in the Android Marketplace. Already Firefox for mobile has seen tremendous intrigue and attention from press and consumers, not to mention our 400 million desktop users who have been asking to take their Firefox with them wherever they go. The opportunity to get in early and develop mobile add-ons for Firefox is enormous.
In order to help you capitalize on this opportunity and get great exposure for your mobile innovations, we’re hosting a Mobile Add-ons Online Training Week, October 20-22. These three days are designed to help you get the information, tips and tricks that you need to develop or port an add-on to Firefox for mobile.
From October 20-22, members of the mobile and AMO teams will be hosting online office hours on IRC and giving live video presentations on the following topics:
- Developing mobile add-ons from scratch
- Porting an existing desktop add-on to mobile
- UI considerations and compatibility
- Top add-on request from users, ways to get exposure, and an upcoming Challenge precursor
Hope to see you there! To get the agenda, topics and participation details, please see Online Training Week Agenda.
