About the Course

It has become a habit for us to launch newer & newer technology courses and one of them is Mozilla Firefox OS App Development course. FYI – Firefox OS is a brand new operating system for smartphones and tablet computers, just like Android or iOS. Firefox OS (project name: Boot to Gecko, also known as B2G) is a Linux-based open-source operating system, developed by Mozilla, a non-profit organization who are the makers of best known browser Firefox.

Mozilla is a global community of technologists, thinkers and developers working together to keep the Internet open, alive and accessible (Open web standards). It gave the world the first true rival to Microsoft Internet Explorer. Firefox is the second-most used web browser in the world today and because of it the way we surf the Internet has changed dramatically. Now their goal is to penetrate the growing market ‘the mobile operating system world’.

Firefox OS smartphones are the first built entirely to open Web standards, enabling every feature to be developed using HTML, CSS & JavaScript. Web apps can access every underlying capability of the device hardware, bypassing the typical hindrances of HTML5 on mobile to deliver substantial performance. The platform’s flexibility allows Telecom Carriers to easily tailor the interface and develop localized services that match the unique needs of their customer base. This means OS App development is no more an arena of just developers or programmers, someone who knows basics of HTML should be able to master all the skills required to develop Firefox OS Apps.
Considering the potential, various mobile manufactures across the world like Sony, LG and ZTE has already begun the effort to deploy this OS on their devices and more than 17 key telecom operators spanning the globe have committed to this Open web device initiative: America Movil, China Unicom, Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Hutchison Three Group, KDDI, KT, MegaFon, Qtel, SingTel, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia Group, Telefonica, Telenor, TMN and VimpelCom to name a few. You can buy a Firefox OS enabled smartphone through Ebay India.

Considering the vast potential of this particular technology and market, Technnovation Labs launches a unique Mozilla OS App Development course which includes training from the basics of development to submitting the Application to the marketplace.
