What is an Event?
An Event is an online/offline gathering of Mozillians which is either officially hosted by Mozilla, one of our communities or an external entity (where a Mozillian is taking care part in). Examples of these events include: online events (e.g. Testdays, Support Days, L10n Days), offline (e.g. Reps Meetups, MozSpaces), Mozilla hosted (e.g. MozCamp, All-Hands, HackDays, Webmaker Days), etc.

Anyone should be able to see the Events Manager whether they're logged-in or not. Within each row entry is a green "Join" button which, when clicked, does two things depending on the user state:
- Logged-in Mozillians Phonebook User: The user is set as participating in the Event in our database and on the app. An e-mail is sent to the user saying that have signed up for the event explaining that the Event Coordinator will follow-up with them later for further details.
- Guest: A dialog pops up informing the user to submit a request to get involved in the Mozilla community (i.e. sign-up for a Phonebook profile). This functionality should tie in to the registration flow of the Mozillians Phonebook.
Leave an Event
Attendees of an event will be able to leave an Event prior to its start date/time via a button on the event listing page.
Events are naturally social. People go to events to meet new people and to converse with the ones they already know. It should be easy to share the events Mozillians are participating in. So, each event on the Events Manager, should offer a way for Mozillians to tweet or post on Facebook an Event. Mozilla already offers a way to do this easily, we simply just need to implement it.
