Event Details

Join us at the London Mozilla Space on Monday October 21st, to learn more about the present and future of Mozilla products and web platform on Android.

Lucas Rocha, Mark Finkle, and Margaret Leibovic, members of the Firefox for Android's front-end team, will give you an overview of the recently added features in Firefox for Android as well as a preview of what's coming for Open Web developers targetting Android:
  • GeckoView: the Gecko embedding API for Android apps
  • WebRT: the runtime platform for running Open Web apps on Android
  • DevTools: the tools to develop Open Web mobile apps
Look forward to seeing you!

18h30 Welcome

State of Firefox for Android (Lucas Rocha)

What's new in Firefox for Android. We keep putting new features into Firefox. See how we keep pushing Firefox to be the best browser on Android.

Introducing GeckoView (Mark Finkle)

Learn about using GeckoView, the Android widget that allows developers  to embed the Firefox HTML rendering engine in their Android  applications. GeckoView is still experimental, but is functional enough  to build simple applications. We're interested in your feedback on the  features and embedding mechanism.
19h40 Quick break

Add-ons API (Margaret Leibovic)

Learn how to build add-ons to customize Firefox for Android. These add-ons are packaged the same way as desktop Firefox add-ons, but we also created a set of JavaScript APIs to allow developers to manipulate the native Android UI.
20h20 Demos: Web Runtime and DevTools

A quick round of demos on the Mozilla development tools for creating Open Web mobile apps. See how web apps can run in a very native way using Firefox for Android as the runtime. The same web app can run  on FirefoxOS, Android and  desktop OSes using the Mozilla Web Runtime.

Relax over some drinks and snacks
