For long the browser wars had fallen into oblivion, but they have never been dead and gone. In fact, they resurrected a few years ago as the mobile wars: Each platform has its own exclusive and proprietary set of languages, frameworks and tools. You want to develop a mobile app? No problem: Just rewrite from scratch for each single platform. The upcoming 'Firefox OS' is the white flag: A light-weight mobile operating system completely based on the native web technologies we have been using for years. Write an app? Do it in HTML5! Enhance the phone? Do it in HTML5! Provide services? Do it in HTML5! Golo Roden introduces you to Firefox OS, talks about its ideas, concepts and current state of implementation. If you are a web developer and interested in mobile, call, uhm ... join!
