Special Bonus Mozilla Service Week Event in Vancouver


Since it's Mozilla Service Week, we are going to have a live, in real life event from 2-5:30p.m. at Agentic at 611 Alexander Street in Vancouver's historical Gastown district for those who are in the Metro Vancouver area in BC, Canada and who are interested in Open Source (doesn't have to be Thunderbird, could be Firefox, Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla, Python, Ruby, Linux, you name it, there's always something to learn!). C'mon down, love to meet you!

Full details about the real life event:

Our normal Get Satisfaction Event

We're holding a Get Satisfaction (GS) day on Thursday September 17th for people interested in helping Thunderbird users on GS. Roland Tanglao, tech support lead for Mozilla Messaging will be available to answer questions on Get Satisfaction including: in general how to use Get Satisfaction, and specifically questions on tagging, merging and just generally chat about support on GS via IRC chat on #thunderbird (general support questions) and #gsfn (questions about Get Satisfaction and how to use it for Thunderbird support) both on irc.mozilla.org. If you don't have an IRC client installed, then try this web client:

If you're interested, come on by anytime between 9:30AM to 5PM PDT this Thursday September 17, 2009!

How do I get ready?

Read the documentation

We don't have much yet (perhaps you can help with documentation?), please start with

  1. Thunderbird Get Satisfaction README/1 Pager
  2. Tagging Convention

This is what we're doing...

We're getting closer and closer to releasing Thunderbird 3 Beta 4 and even more exciting Thunderbird 3 And there are lots of Thunderbird questions in Get Satisfaction at http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging that haven't been answered. We'd like to answer as many as we can before Thunderbird 3 comes out and get as many of community members helping out on GS as possible now so that we can be ready for Thunderbird 3.

Here's some of the things we're planning on doing throughout the day:

  • General tips and tricks on using GS
  • How to tag in GS - add keywords so others can find this topic later
  • How to merge topics in GS
  • Working on the Current Support Backlog (see next section)
