FirefoxOS Workshop at University of Santo Tomas

FirefoxOS Workshop at University of Santo Tomas
February 1, 2014

This is my first time  to take a lead on a FirefoxOS workshop event.
With the help of my fellow Reps Mozillian and UST students, i can say that this event was successful.
The program started with me to have a lightning talk about Mozilla in the Philippines for the Students be familiarized with Mozilla before we start with the workshop. Followed by  Kristian Paul Lugtu for the Responsive Design and lastly Aaron Cajes for the Firefox OS Porting.
For the complete programe list please see our planning pad here.

For the complete set of our picture please check at our MozillaPH Flickr page here.

By the way here's the screen for the awesome apps they made.
Of course, the students go home with awesome swags from Mozilla.

Say 'Hola'!!

Geeksphone Keon is here.

Though as a ReMo, I often received swags from Mozilla for the events I organized for the past months.
Only this time, a UPS delivery guy asked me.

UPS Guy: Sir, ano po ba itong laman package mo? (Sir, what's inside of your package?)
Me: Geeks phone Keon po, FirefoxOS Developer preview phone. Isa ako sa iilan na meron nyan dito sa Pilipinas. Developer preview pa lang po ito Kuya, hindi pang end user para pang testing at pag develop ng apps ito.
(It's Geeks phone Keon, FirefoxOS Developer preview phone. I'm one of few here in the Philippines to have this phone.
This is for Developer, not for end user. This device is for and testing developing apps)

UPS Guy: Wow ayos ah, sana ilalabas na yan atin.  (Wow nice! hope have that on our local market)..
Me: Hopefully this year Kuya meron na yan. (Hopefully this year we can have it on our local market)
UPS. Ito na ang package mo, paki sign na lang dito, binayaran na nila ang tax.(Here's your package, please sign here, they (Mozilla) already paid the tax.)
Me: Awesome!! (with big smile)
Maraming Salamat Mozilla!!

I already tried the battery performance.
4 days standby mode.
6-8 hours regular usage 

I love the rubber-like orange plastic cover, it's very comfy to hold, and very easy to remove. (Unlike my Alcatel Adriod phone, it's hard to remove the cover).

Let's start hacking!!..
