Mozilla – known above all for its work on the Firefox web browser – is currently implementing an HTML5-compatible open-source operating system for mobile devices: Firefox OS. This new OS, which is still under development, will enable developers to easily create applications based on pre-existing Mozilla APIs.

The launch of the operating system being scheduled some time in 2013, the various Mozilla communities around the world are invited to develop applications specific to the OS and intended to feed the Firefox MarketPlace during the Firefox OS App Days, which will also be held on January 25th and 26th at other locations all over the world. EPITA is hosting the French edition of the event.

After a presentation of Firefox OS on Friday evening, all day Saturday will be dedicated to workshops and above all to a hackathon, during which participants will create all kinds of applications in HTML5. If you can develop in HTML5, Javascript or CSS and are interested in this project, register here. The only requirement will be to bring your computer and an Android smartphone.

The Firefox OS App Days will take place in EPITA’s facilities at Kremlin-Bicêtre (Val-de-Marne, on the outskirts of Paris). They will start on January 25th at 6pm and will end on the 26th at 10pm.
