On July 11th and 12th, the QA team will be participating along with the l10n team in an event in Lima, Peru.

Objective of the Meetup

The purpose of this meetup is to provide a general overview of Firefox Desktop QA as well as give participants a chance to do some live testing of a Firefox Desktop feature.

Why QA?

QA is a wonderful entry point to the Mozilla project that doesn't necessarily require a lot of technical knowledge. Learning QA techniques in general can help you get in a job testing not just software, but all different types of things (hardware, web testing, etc).
