"Firefox OS" by Sergi Mansilla

Sergi will talk about why systems like Firefox OS are more necessary than you think, the technology behind it and how it will give freedom to users and make developers’ lives much easier. He will also give you the necessary knowledge to start making Firefox OS apps right away (hint: you’ve already made some!).

Short Bio
I work at Comoyo on Firefox OS core, I also evangelize and organize events around it. Before that I worked at Cloud9 IDE making an online IDE entirely in Node.js and JavaScript, and before that I lead the team that implemented the webkit framework that run the UIs in modern TomTom devices.

I prefer functional languages, but I try to treat languages as tools, some are better at the task at hand that others. My tools of trade are vim, JavaScript and OCaml. I live in Amsterdam but I am from Barcelona. In Amsterdam I am the organizer of the monthly AmsterdamJS meetup.

"New Features in iOS 7 for Developers" by Adrian Kosmaczewski

This talk will provide a quick overview of the new possibilities offered by iOS 7 for app developers. It targets iOS developers familiar with the APIs of iOS 6, and will give them up-to-date information about cool new features that can be used now in new applications (as well as some painful gotchas). The presentation will include live demos.
