Mozillians who wish to attend

We want to thank you very much for your interest in representing Mozilla at the JSConf. As usual, we did not have enough tickets available for all the Mozillians that wanted to participate but we did carefully consider each person. We considered things like new technologies we are trying to grow our communities around, willingness to work at the booth and who had attended in previous years. Although we did not have a ticket for everyone this year, we encourage you to let us know again next time if you are interested. With your managers approval, we encourage you apply for a ticket the minute they come on sale since the number of tickets we get with our sponsorship is usually limited.

We love that so many Mozillians want to attend, and each year we will make a better effort to accommodates everyone's requests!

If you attend:

  • Everyone will be asked to blog, tweet and help share what happens at JSConf.
  • We will also need some of the people going to help with the Mozilla table. If you are willing to do that, please indicate that, thanks!

Please add your name by February 28th. Stormy Peters will get back to you with who we are able to sponsor this year by March 9, 2012.

Brendan Dahl pdf.js Hopefully I can do some of the more impromptu speaking sessions or a workshop and talk about pdf.js in order to get more contributors. Pdf.js is also a good project to showcase for "the web is the platform" since it shows the power of what you can do using only HTML5. I'd love to help out at the table too.
