Hello Firefox OS Community,

Last week, we mentioned how November was going to be a huge month for us – and we were right! From entrepreneurship events in Ivory Coast to the launch of Firefox OS 2.5 and the Mozilla Festivals in London and Yaoundé, once again this week was a blast.

This year, special sessions will be dedicated to women, kids, journalists and bloggers. So don’t wait any longer to book your tickets!

Global Entrepreneurship week in Ivory Coast
It’s time for the Global Entrepreneurship week in Ivory Coast! Organised in 150 countries, this week is the most important celebration of entrepreneurship in the world. Through various events organised by the Jokkolabs and ESPartners, Ivory Coast will show its talents to the world. The objective of this week is to inspire, connect, mentor and engage people… It’s a celebration to definitely attend from the 16th- 22nd November.


Generation Entrepreneur Ivory Coast
Ivory Coast is booming! Since 15th October (up until 21st of November), ADN Factory have launched a project to discover new talents and promote entrepreneurship.

3 big steps to this project:

  1. Applications: selection of 10 projects, 10 journalists and 10 bloggers across the country.
  2. Impact week: Training during one weekend.
  3. Final: 5 young entrepreneurs will pitch their projects. The Jury will select the best article, the best blog post and the best project. The best project will be incubated in Terra Nova.

And the really good news? One of our Firefox Student Ambassador’s, Abbackar was one of the finalists!


Firefox OS 2.5
We are happy to announce that Firefox OS 2.5 is out! And to top it off, you can have it on your Android phone! YES!
This latest version of Firefox OS delivers new features including:

  • Add-ons: Firefox OS add-ons can extend just one app, several, or all of them, including the system app itself.
  • Private Browsing with Tracking Protection: It allows users to control how their browsing activity is tracked across many sites.
  • Pin the Web: It removes the artificial distinction between web apps and websites and lets you pin any website or web page to your home screen for later usage.
