Three weeks, three awesome events, one goal


I am really excited about this blog post! The upcoming weeks are going to be extremely awesome, regarding the two FOSS projects I am mostly involved in Fedora and Mozilla.

 Athens Firefox OS App Days

By time order, this Saturday is the Athens Firefox OS App Day which is sold out from the previous week. This event is going to be a hackathon on the new Firefox OS operating system for mobile devices. In 11 hours, 350 web and mobile developers are going to learn everything about Firefox OS, from theory to “build my own app”. We are going to provide them all the nessessary tools for building their own app in a few hours such as pizza and beer!

A month ago was the Firefox OS hackathon, a pilot event of Firefox OS App Days in Athens hackerspace which prepared us for a success upcoming series of Firefox OS App Days events.

    All our designers are some of the most skilled professional graphic artists in America.
    I have observed that quite often, the articles you find on blogs are more
    voluminous than those on online magazines, not to talk of the
    short questions on forums. Knowing this we just need to find websites that
    the major search engine crawls frequently.

    Those companies previously only too willing to shower us with offers, enticing us to take out credit, apply for credit cards, loans and other finance packages have become increasingly twitchy
    and far more reserved. It is also a good idea to check your credit reports with all three main credit reporting agencies so that you can clearly understand that
    what’s being reported. No need to register anywhere – there is no need for a customer to register or
    have an account on any of the websites to complete the purchase (unlike with e-wallet payments).
