In keeping up with Maker Party 2014 series slogan “Teach Learn & Make”, Mozilla Mombasa proudly brings to you the Firefox OS Apps Expo that is to be held on Saturday, 27th September 2014 at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology Mombasa Campus from 8.00AM to 1.00PM. With the unveiling of Firefox Keon mobile phone last year by Mozilla, it has raised a need for Apps on the Marketplace, functionality driven apps that could run on the Firefox OS and also help users of the phone with their day to day activities. So over the past 1 month +, we have had a few people who have been working on applications that revolve around doing just that, and we would love to see the great work they have been doing!
The attendants would get the chance to showcase their apps for the first time to Business people from reputable companies from Mombasa, IT professionals, students and fellow Mozillians and pitch their app and also talk about how they intend to monetize their app. The event will also involve a panel discussion on commercialization of mobile apps. This is also a chance for them to get together with other developers, open web advocates and people passionate about mobile to talk about how Firefox OS, HTML5, JS, contributes to the open web and how we can keep the web free, share best practices and much more. It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced coder or just want to learn more on building apps and more, everyone is welcome.
All apps presented will be reviewed by a professional team of judges and voting will be based on business panelists reviews, judge’s reviews and public reviews. The best application will win a great prize.
All attendants will go home with some goodies courtesy of Mozilla and of course, besides the learning part, we shall have fun too!
Registration is FREE!
