Yesterday evening my geeky-pal Mega and me dropped by Medialab-Prado to attend the Mozilla Add-Ons Workshop organized by Pascal Chevrel and Paul Rouget both from Mozilla Europe and some guys from the GSyC department of Rey Juan Carlos University.
After a short introduction from Pascal, Paul give us a very interesting talk about how to develop an extension for Mozilla Firefox, from the basics of XUL to more complicated stuff as the several classes outside the gecko rendering engine that can be used to handle files, sockets and that kind of stuff.
As a non professional developer, since I’m more a system engineer, the talk seemed very interesting to me, and let me know the tools to continue exploring the Mozilla extensions development world, since I’ve some ideas that I want to carry out.
After the talk, the event organizers brought some drinks and pizzas for those of us that stayed there having a nice hacker-chat.
What else can be asked for? nice hacker chat in a nice place, pizza… well, a nice evening :) Some pics at flickr if you’re curious on how it was like.
