Firefox OS

Speaker Location: no audio

  • 1.0.1
    • Highest priority is closing blocker bugs raised by the remaining certification passes by downstream partners. This set of bugs will rise and fall with each successive phase of testing. Rolling, rolling, rolling...
  • 1.1
    • Nearly feature-complete, waiting only for a few more Mail features and then MMS (a massive beast of a spec) support landing in the next couple of weeks.
  • Kumar McMillan's Hacks.m.o post on Navigator.pay() got a ton of internet attention over the weekend, even making it onto BoingBoing.net.

Grow Mozilla

Speaker Location: San Francisco

There was a Community Builders meetup in Toronto a couple of weeks ago where employees and volunteers from across the project worked on plans to address the highest priority community building needs. This group created a lot of things that will help all teams and local communities bring in new contributors.

If you're interested in bringing in new contributors to your project, now is the perfect time since the opportunity has never been greater. When we encouraged people to get involved with Mozilla as part of promotions for Mozilla's 15th anniversary, we had over 1,600 potential volunteers contact us in a single day.

60 Seconds with Mozilla IT

Speaker Location: mrz in SF

  • 2013 Q1 Review, in -3- bullet points
    • Rolled out Bugzilla upgrade from 4.0 to 4.2. And moved it to faster hardware. Shout out to Byron, David & Mark from the BMO team.
    • Moved to a new office in Paris. Monumental amount of effort to have Internet, wifi and video conferencing up in a matter of days.
    • Our product delivery CDN peaked at nearly 200Gbps. What's a "jigga bit"? That's like downloading a full length movie every second. Or watching 5600 Blu-ray movies AT THE SAME TIME. Or like downloading 5 DVDs every second.
  • We didn't sit still last week
    • Both the Web Tools and DBA teams helped Mozilla IT proactively upgrade our PostgreSQL infrastructure, in response to major security vulnerability release, starting with Socorro crash reporting systems
    • Pushed out the first official release of the Firefox Health Report

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.
