Participants have been selected for this event. Thanks very much for all the great applications. We hope you will be able to join us at a future event!


On October 24th and 25th, the QA team will be participating along with the l10n team in a joint event in the Mozilla space in Paris, France.

Objective of the Meetup

The purpose of this meetup is to provide a general overview of Firefox OS QA as well as give participants a chance to do some live testing of FX OS. We will balance some presentation with some live testing, in order to provide a balanced learning opportunity.

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).

Learning Opportunities

  • General overview of QA
  • Testing and debugging a Firefox OS feature in a hackathon session

Who you will meet

  • QA Engineers and testers
  • l10n localizers
