Objective

Learning how to developed an Open Web App and add it to Firefox OS.

Aimed at existing web developers to either take your existing HTML5 solutions - or start from scratch - and build Open Web Apps that are installable on Firefox OS. A number of WebAPIs and possibilities on that platform will be covered which you can optionally use to create a richer experience with your apps.
