#FirefoxOS_Apps_Challenge – Cairo
Mozilla Egypt ended their #FirefoxOS_Apps_Challenge with their third offline training in Cairo! This training, where they introduced the tools and advantages of building apps for Firefox OS was very successful. They also had the chance to help the attendees to write codes and teach them how to upload and use the Marketplace. Well done team!
