Øredev2013 – Firefox OS – the platform HTML5 deserves

Friday, November 8th, 2013 at 10:14 am

It is not very often that I mess up completely, but when I do, I don’t give up easily. On the second day of Øredev I was scheduled at 1 in the afternoon to talk about Firefox OS and I thought I totally got over my jetlag (I arrived 2 days before from San Francisco). I got back to the hotel around midnight to be up early, have breakfast, go to the gym and be ready bright and bushy-tailed for my presentation after lunch. Guess my horror when my hotel room phone rang and I was asked where I was as my talk started 5 minutes ago. My mobile phone alarm did not go off for some reason and I had overslept about 6 hours! This morning I learned that I can brush my hair and teeth at the same time and that I can be on stage and ready to present in 10 minutes after getting up. I am terribly sorry and grateful for the audience waiting for 10 minutes and I still managed to power through the talk in 25 minutes. I am really looking forward to the video of this one as I almost lost my voice at the beginning. The audience reaction was great though, dedication does pay off :)
