Jan 26 – In over 20 cities
On Saturday, the 26th of January, something magical will happen in more than 20 locations around the world: Developers and designers will meet to get educated and inspired to work on apps and submit them to the Firefox Marketplace.

So why don’t you come and join us to celebrate Firefox OS and start building apps for the Firefox Marketplace?
