Random Nuggets

  • Don't forget to buy your travel if you haven't already!


  • AMO devhub changes and fixes.
  • Flightdeck, couple of minor fixes.
  • St Davids, Britain's smallest city - good surfing.


  • Mobile mozilla.com
  • Email migration
  • Firefox 4 Beta 7



  • Input
  • AMO
    • Activity tracker with flexible schema
  • Lots of interviews
  • Chicago, but I don't like winter so temperate San José is quite nice.


  • SUMO stuff
  • Interviews: Glen, Luke, Sean, James. Helped Dave and Jeff vet their interview questions.
  • Filed and patched a Django bug about the ignoring of the name attr on fields. When fixed, this will let us use descriptors to provide getters and setters in more cases.
  • Boxed MySQL soundly about the face and neck for not supporting functional defaults on datetime columns. (There's nothing you can do short of using triggers or resorting to a timestamp column, which has its own issues.)
  • Reported a really fun can't-make-a-new-window Firefox bug.
  • Solla Solew. “It is an Odyssey-tale told by a young narrator who experiences troubles in his life—mostly aggressive small animals which bite and sting.” somehow fails to capture the essence of the thing.



  • 3 million more zamboni hits per day with /downloads, averaging 10-20 ms response.
  • Brought back caching by id (sharing object instances in the cache) and the discovery pane got half a second faster
  • Add-ons can be uploaded to zamboni with the new dev tools
  • Portland is a nice place.


  • Graphics work for Fx4b7 pages
  • Fx4 Beta screenshots
  • Fx4 Demo site coordination & work week
  • Mobile mozilla.com mockups & research
  • New York City, from what I've seen of it


  • SUMO had a Test Day for our new KB (2.3) on Friday. It went well, thanks to everyone who helped!
  • 2.3 is feature complete as of Armistice Day (11/11).
  • Code completion in T-7 days.
  • Favorite city: New York (close second/not where I live: Paris)


  • AMO
    • Developer pages
      • Big one is the Add-on validator screen
      • small changes here and there, bug fixes
    • Started some ideas for adding a JavaScript test suite to AMO. Feel free to add yours.
  • I like Chicago. The winters are brutal but that's when everyone stays in and gets a ton of work done. Chicagoans emerge from winter with a lot of accomplishments. Also, it's the smallest big city in the world. You can easily get to know a lot of people really well in a small circle (this is both good and bad).
