MobileCamp 2015 – Firefox OS room

Posted by in Mozilla, mozillareps

On April 25 and 26 the 7th edition of the MobileCamp was organized in Dresden, Germany. Mobilecamp is a barcamp with “Mobile” as topic. It’s probably the most important barcamp regarding mobile in the German-speaking countries. Therefore the German-speaking Mozilla community decided to host a Firefox OS day on Saturday. The organizers of the barcamp were kind enough to lend us a room specific for that. Since the MobileCamp was mostly dominated by Android, iOS and Windows Phone in the past, we decided to do a Firefox OS day to…read more

On the 13.12.2014 we’ve met in Cologne, Germany to have a “Firefox OS Awareness Day”. The goal of this event was to promote Firefox OS in Germany, a very difficult task as it turns out.

EuroPython 2014

We hoped that maybe it would be equipped and manned in the afternoon or maybe on tuesday. But wednesday arrived and the booth remained empty. So I contacted Michael, our rep of the swiss Mozilla community. After he asked me to get some swag from the local Mozilla office in…read more
