Teachers love FxOS app, debug across platforms in Firefox, MDN's Video Channel & more: DevPulse Vol 8

/Welcome to the 8th edition 
<https://wiki.mozilla.org/Engagement/Developer_Engagement/DevPulse/Oct2014> 
of DevPulse 
<https://wiki.mozilla.org/Engagement/Developer_Engagement/DevPulse>: a 
monthly glance at stuff happening among and for developers, sourced by 
many. Our goal is to create greater transparency and collaboration 
around the various efforts at Mozilla to support mobile, web & app 
developers./


    Developer world news

  * Mozillian Rabimba Karanjai <http://mzl.la/Rabimba> was awarded a
    Loft Video Game Innovation Fellowship <http://mzl.la/loftfellowship>
    from the Entertainment Software Association, for his Firefox OS game
    MathRacer <http://mzl.la/MathRacer>. As a result, he visited
    Washington DC in October along with other Loft Innovation Fellows to
    meet with representatives from Congress and the White House
    interested in games in STEM education. Rabimba reports that his game
    generated a lot of interest, especially from teachers who want to
    use it in classrooms, and from three members of Congress. Many
    thanks to Michael Shal for loaning Rabimba a Flame device
    <http://mzl.la/Flame> to use in his demos.
  * They say imitation is the best form of flattery, so the team was
    very flattered to see Microsoft on UserVoice <http://mzl.la/IEUV>
    asking for feedback on its IE platform (in case you missed it:
    Mozilla has been there collecting and acting on feedback on our dev
    tools <http://mzl.la/devtools> and the web platform
    <http://mzl.la/openwebapps> for several months).
  * HTML5 mobile works! Next time someone questions the efficacy of
    HTML5 on mobile, point them to this <http://mzl.la/HTML5Mobile>
  * Evangelist Chris Heilmann <http://mzl.la/CH> was featured in a
    podcast <http://mzl.la/Binpress> for open source marketplace
    Binpress <http://mzl.la/BP>, discussing all kinds of things about
    Mozilla, his career, the future of the mobile web and how to be a
    nice person online.
  * Contributor Benjamin Kerensa <http://mzl.la/BenjaminK> shared
    <http://mzl.la/FOSSForce> about Firefox OS and Mozilla with FOSS Force.


    App & Web Developer Perspectives

  * Firefox OS it is! When Sony stopped pushing updates to their Xperia
    SP model, community efforts <http://mzl.la/XDA> began to fill the
    gap with Firefox OS.
  * If you are a web developer, we're curious to know what services you
    use, or would use if you had better access. Please fill out this
    short survey <https://groovecoder.typeform.com/to/zdcvLM> by October 7.


    Project & Event Highlights

  * The tools team launched a cross-platform debugging tool
    <http://mzl.la/Adapter> called Adapter. It got lots of great press
    coverage <http://mzl.la/TCAdapter>. Go forth and cross platforms!
  * Some people were asking for a useful resource for external Firefox
    OS app development-related tools, libraries, etc., so Chris Mills
    <http://mzl.la/ChrisMills> aka The Fixer decided to make one
    <http://mzl.la/1uhZRYB>. Feel free to add other tools, or give him
    suggestions for other useful stuff to add.
  * Speaking of resources, we have a developer channel
    <http://mzl.la/devvideos> on YouTube! This includes a playlist
    <http://mzl.la/devtoolsvideos> of all of our Firefox Developer Tools
    videos.
  * And speaking of videos, Ali Spivak <http://mzl.la/ali> and Janet
    Swisher <http://mzl.la/1iy8AQh> are creating the MDN video channel
    <http://mzl.la/MDNvideos>, which will host a series of 15-20 minute
    conference-quality deep technical presentations that community
    members can use as centerpieces for local developer meetups,
    supported by the content from the associated "Topic in a Box
    <http://mzl.la/TopicinaBox>."
  * Evangelist Frédéric Harper <http://mzl.la/FH> was in Mexico
    <http://mzl.la/Congreso> to share the love about Firefox OS at the
    Congreso Universitario Móvil. During his one-day presence at the
    event, Fred was busy: he did an one hour keynote, one hour Q&A
    session, led a three-hour workshop, and conducted three media
    interviews. The takeaway? The Mexican community is eager to see more
    involvement from Mozilla in their country!
  * The Flame Reference phone <http://mzl.la/Flame> has a new dist list.
    Sign up <http://mzl.la/FlameNews> to get the latest on new builds
    and other relevant Flame news.


    "Geekery" Highlights

  * Don't miss Robert Nyman's <http://mzl.la/RobertN> presentation
    <http://mzl.la/RNMobileTrends> on mobile trends & opportunities for
    developers - chock full of great market stats.
  * Ever wonder how our lower-memory smart phones work? Learn the
    details of how these devices handle memory management on Hacks
    <http://mzl.la/HacksMM>.


    Engaging with Developers Together

  * Preview and test an upcoming developer tool, Timeline
    <http://mzl.la/Timeline>.
  * Identify topics that would be helpful for developers in your
    community. The more details you share, the better.
    https://devengage.etherpad.mozilla.org/DevMeetupTopics
  * Buy a Flame <http://mzl.la/Flame> and start building with it.

General ?'s about DBD's and platforms
------=_NextPart_000_0006_01C0C1B3.2FD29310 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit PSCI_1I am relatively new to Perl, primary experience through Windows NT with limited knowledge of UNIX. I have been instructed to identify a corporate standard version of Perl and upgrade our desktops and servers. For servers we have NT, HP/UX and SunSolaris. We run Oracle 7 & 8, and DB2 UDB. Is it naive of me to think that I can have one standard build of perl for the corporation? I was thinking of having one, with DBD's for all our data...

XP's proxycfg.exe & Firefox v3.0.8
Hello. Is it me or does Firefox v3.0.8 not use proxy settings that I set through proxycfg.exe? I can get to work with IE (v6-v7) and CDBurnerXP (to download its update for the program), but not Firefox. I read that the program has to know winHTTP. Am I understanding this correctly? If so, does that mean it won't work with Firefox (and SeaMonkey)?
