Simonyi Konferencia 2014 - Firefox OS: From HTML5 to hardware

Puts fingers in ears and sings la-la-la-la-la-la. In recent years there has been a big debate over web vs. native. And to be fair, it was never an even game. The web was always lacking behind: there was no story for offline; it was impossible to make a nice OS integration; and you could not access the features that make a phone so cool like sensors, or the GSM radio. Now that is going to change, Mozilla is building Firefox OS, a mobile operating system solely built on top of web technology. And that means: new APIs for all the things missing on the web! Talking to sensors, making a phone call, etc. All from JavaScript.

But, how does a call from a client side application (in JS) gets routed to the actual hardware? In this presentation Jan Jongboom will guide you from calling a JavaScript functions all the way down to the radio chipset, explaining the architecture of Firefox OS on the way.

Nice talk, but I think that the cameraman should focus on the slides rather than the audience.

Thanks for your review. :-)
We'll do our best on the next conference, which will be held on 21 April 2015. See you there!
