MozFest crowd shot -- 9940882226 b8464450be o.jpg

What does “working in the open” mean for you? How do we do it at Mozilla — and where do we need to adapt, adjust and improve?

In this session, we'll dive into discussion around these key themes -- and then start hacking together on something more concrete: a new FAQ guide on "How to work open at Mozilla."

We'll surface key questions around where working open seems difficult or confusing in your own work, creating a lasting resource for ongoing use and follow-up after the Summit.

The emphasis is on how we work, collaborate, and practice open on a daily basis. Mozilla is committed to open not only in terms of technology -- but also in terms of a unique way of working together. Join us to celebrate, elevate and help document this key part of our culture, history and future. (more)

Imagining a Mozilla-Wide Open Badges System + OBI 101

Location:

Brussels: Studio 313/315
Toronto: Conference F on the Mezzanine Level
Santa Clara: Prospector B

Track: Product and Technology

Working Narrative:

The Open Badges Infrastructure makes learning and credentialing work like the Web. Through digital badges, we can build an ecosystem of open learning with stackable, information-based credentials. Open Badges can be used for recognizing and communicating skills and achievements, building reputation and community, and finding peers and hires.

In this session, we'll provide a brief badges 101 and then explore the opportunity for Mozilla badges for the global community of Mozillians. Together we'll ask: What badges would prove compelling to contributors, staff and community members? What needs to be built and provided to support this large, cohesive system? What are immediate next steps for making these badges real and recognizable? Is now the right time for a Mozilla-wide badge system?

How do we scale up our innovation capacity?

Location:

Brussels: Studio 311/312
Toronto: Conference C
Santa Clara: Seattle

Track: Product and Technology

If we're to have the kind of massive impact on the internet that we hope to, we have to ask ourselves whether our structure and processes will get us there. If we want to facilitate innovation at the edges and focus on recognizing good ideas rather than having them, how should we relate to web innovators around the world?

Enter The Compartment - Gecko's Script Security Architecture Explained

Location:

Brussels: Studio 211/212

A talk and Q&A session targeted at frontend, extension, and WebAPI developers.

XPConnect has historically been one of the scariest and most mysterious parts of Gecko. In the past few years, we've made major architectural advancements that vastly simplify things and give us very powerful invariants. Nevertheless, knowledge about our script architecture tends to be concentrated in the heads of a few very busy people. This session aims to spread some of that knowledge.

We'll begin a brief history of script security on the web, and move into an in-depth description of Mozilla's script architecture. Topics include Compartments, Principals, Security Wrappers, Xrays, DOM bindings, __exposedProps__, Expandos, and more. Come with questions!

Mobile devices come with constraints unknown to desktop machines. As such, localization contains different requirements in order to successfully produce a localized mobile experience. We'd like to discuss these constraints and strategies the L10n Drivers and the localization community would like to see in order to win in this new ecosystem. Additionally, the entry point for localization teams in the Mozilla localization ecosystem has been localizing Firefox desktop. As the world changes toward increased use and availability of mobile devices, it's time to discuss adding mobile Mozilla products as entry points to localization for relevant locales. We anticipate this to not only change the localization landscape on mobile, but on Firefox desktop as well. We'll discuss here the localization communities interest in this approach and how this might impact Firefox desktop localization for smaller locales.

The Open Badges in Scottish Education Group has come together to enable connections to be made between different stakeholders impacting / influencing the development of Open Badges in relation to formal education in Scotland. The group brings together people from schools, colleges, universities, educational agencies (eg the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), Education Scotland (the national body supporting quality and improvement in Scottish school education)), professional bodies, advisory boards, employer groups, Open Badges projects, and national and local government, to make connections, share practice and to consider strategic and joint developments of Open Badges. I am the founder and convener of the group and would like to share how the group has helped members address some of the challenges they have faced with their own Open Badge developments and the opportunities created by bringing diverse stakeholders together. These include: how the group has enabled the SQA to gain feedback from the sector, which has helped influence the SQA's approach to Open Badges; how people in schools have been able to connect with Education Scotland and bring their local government on board through membership of the group; how employers have been able to engage with education providers and have a conversation around the kinds of skills and competencies they would like to see in graduates and which could be accredited via Open Badges.

Location:

Brussels: Studio 314/316
Toronto: Willow Room West

Many localizers have noticed a technical gap in the localization tools and resources offered to perform localization at Mozilla, specifically in assessing and maintaining translation quality. Some regional communities have attempted to organize and create these resources, like the FUEL effort in India. The L10n drivers have dedicated time to evaluating tools that incorporate translation memory features, more precise metrics, as well as efforts to create and use glossaries, termbases, and style guides. As a community, we'd like to discuss requirements for such tools and resources from all participants in the localization effort at Mozilla

What's Next for Real-Time Communication on the Web

Time: 16:00-18:00 (Brussels)

Location:

Brussels: Studio 214/216
Toronto: N/A
Santa Clara: N/A

Communication and interaction are now integral parts of the web.  We work, play, collaborate, and experience the web socially.   Mozilla has taken the first steps towards opening the space of realtime communication by supporting WebRTC, but where do we go from here?  Some possibilities present themselves in the decreasingly private, increasingly surveillanced state of online communication.  Other opportunities lie in extending the potential for collaboration towards Doug Englebart's vision of shared intellectual space.  There is tremendous potential for Mozilla, perhaps more than anyone else, to build solutions for users that drastically improve how we experience the web.

Brussels: N/A
Toronto: Windsor West
Santa Clara: N/A

The Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) is well-known for being one of the world's most detailed, complete, and useful sources of developer documentation. Yet there is always so much to do — the MDN team relies heavily on contributions from volunteers and other Mozilla teams to keep on top of things. The good news is that anyone can easily make a positive contribution to the site: no change is too small, and everything counts! In this session MDN team members will lead a hands-on exploration of what you can do to improve MDN and how, whether you want to write tutorials or reference material, submit demo apps or translations, fix bugs on the site itself, or improve visibility for your favourite project or API.

I'd like to come out of this discussion with

  • should we do that or not?
  • what does that look like?
  • are there good milestones on the way there?
  • interest groups for individual functional areas on the way.

Mozilla is very geographically distributed. Being able to work well with people physically far away from you is important... both to employees and to contributors. Its a hard to do, but it can be done.

Come share tips + tricks with a group in Mozilla that have 18 people in 15 cities in 4 non-adjacent timezones and have been doing this for 6+years.

Owning our identities and data on the web is something we value and talk about at Mozilla but who is actually walking the walk?

If you have your own web site and want to improve it, want to get started, or just want to find out what the emerging IndieWeb community has built and gotten working, bring your laptop and come on by the Lounge Space (Sedona Room).
