I’m Andre Alves Garzia and I’m from Niterói city in the Rio de Janeiro state in sunny and confused Brazil. By day I am a mobile app developer but I am known to occasionally write books. I joined the tablet program because tablets are my favorite form factor and I think they are terribly underused mostly due to UX and badly designed apps.
My idea is to help shape Firefox OS for tablets into a super fantastic platform for me and others. I am still a webOS developer and power user (daily driver still a pre3 and daily tablet is a Touchpad), I hope to bring some of what was good in webOS into Firefox OS.
I am a Mozilla Rep involved with the Brazilian Firefox OS Launch Team. Among my contributions for the platform I’ve written the “Quick Guide for Firefox OS Development” which was the first available book to guide new developers into our platform. Its FOSS and available at: http://leanpub.com/quickguidefirefoxosdevelopment/
