About 9 months ago an acquisition editor from Manning Publications first approached me, asking whether I was interested in writing a book about Firefox OS app development. Being a contributor, module peer for keyboard, and evangelist for Telenor, that actually made sense. Even when almost everyone in my environment that ever wrote a book said: "Yeah, it sounds fun, but actually its horrible". In a way they were right, especially the start was though; but during the process I actually had more and more fun. The fruit of the labour has now been bundled in an early access version of my book "Firefox OS in Action".

Thank for writing a great book. I read the "Welcome to the Future" part of your book it is just awesome.

Information about UI is also great. I am eager to read your whole book.
