Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation.

Title Presenter Topic Media More Details
Boot To Gecko Chris Jones Boot to Gecko aims to create a complete, standalone operating system for the open web. (no slides) https://wiki.mozilla.org/B2G
The Future of Firefox User Experience Alex Limi Part 1 of our two-part UX presentation series is happening at noon PST this Wednesday (July 27th). We'll be showing what the Firefox UX team has been up to since Firefox 4, a visual design direction, a better model for add-on integration, the 80/20/2 rule, Home tab / New tab, and Presence in the browser. The talk should be recorded if we can make it happen, and broadcast on Air Mozilla. (Date is tentative until I've gotten confirmation that it isn't conflicting with any other talks in Ten Forward) N/A N/A
