All-hands Status Meeting Agenda

Items in this section will be shared during the live all-hand status meeting.

Friends of Mozilla Friends of Mozilla

  • Thanks to community member Nicolas [:qll] for contributing a security section to the WebDev Bootcamp!
  • Thanks to community members Errietta Kostala, Georgiana, Afshin Mehrabani, François Marier, Neil Bleasdale (twice!) and Bernd Loeber for replacing inline scripts and styles with safer alternatives in Firefox's codebase!
  • Thank you to everyone who participated in the first-ever Marketplace Day last Thursday. A few dozen volunteers and staff got together online and collaborated, filing bugs, running tests, translating strings, updating documentation, and working on visual design. We look forward to connecting again at the next Marketplace Day in June (date TBD).
  • Congratulations to Andreas Wagner [:TheOne], who became the 5th most prolific add-on reviewer of all time (and 2nd among volunteers), with over 4,000 add-on reviews since he began contributing in 2009. Because he is made of Awesome, he also has a few hundred app reviews under his belt, and recently collected a Firefox security bounty to boot.
  • Thanks to community members Andre Garzia, Elisa Xitlali, Daniel Anez Scott, and Inma Barrios for their fantastic localization work on Apps Blog Mother's Day posts in Spanish and Portuguese.

One of Mozilla’s goals this year is to increase the size of the community by 10 times.

Help us reach that goal (and look good while doing it) by using one of your two new MozLove t-shirts to bring in a new contributor.

Not sure how to do that? Check out this simple 3 step guide to connect new people to Mozilla:

  • Tell them about our mission
  • Tell them we need their help
  • Tell them where to find opportunities

To get more help with connecting people to projects at Mozilla, come to the Grow Mozilla discussion this Thursday at 10 pacific or join the discussion on the community-building@mozilla.org mailing list.

Cloud Services

Speaker Location:

Firefox Marketplace

Please mark your calendars for an Apps and Marketplace Town Hall at 10am PDT, Thursday, May 29th. We'll show some cool demoes, talk about the awesome stuff we're doing, and show how Mozillians can help.

IT

Speaker Location: mjeffries, San Francisco

A/V issues update

IT/Operations is working to reduce AV issues overall. We are prioritizing these issues based on user needs and requirements, because ultimately Video Conferencing should be like making a phone call. It just works. So please take this opportunity to let us know what is important to you when it comes to Vidyo and how it could be better. We are excited to get your feedback

Please note we are looking for feedback on the VidyoDesktop Client specifically (vs. using Vidyo in a conference room, where it's not run from your laptop).

Data Center Move Update

As you know, IT is moving from scl1 to scl3 for cost savings (over $900K saved so far, and growing!). The "end user visible" part of the process will be starting early on Monday May 19, and continue for approx. 5-6 weeks. We'll be announcing the details during various engineering meetings next week.

The long term benefits include:  - continued cost reduction  - faster response time for technical issues

The short term impact includes:   - only impacts engineering   - build farm capacity will be degraded at times (especially M-Tu)   - no tree closures are anticipated.   - releng will be extra busy during the moves.

We'll push a more detailed note to the dev-platform list,so you can direct any followup questions there. Check it out: https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-platform

Web Compatibility

Speaker Location: Austin (miketaylr)

  • Bing maps works now in Firefox for Android :applause-emoji:
  • techmundo.com.br (top 100 in Brazil) now recognizes Firefox OS as a mobile device (+ua-override removed)
  • nzherald.co.nz also sending Firefox OS users to mobile sites.
  • Up-and-coming furniture startup ikea.com also recognizes Firefox OS as a mobile device.
  • Check out the Firefox Site Compatibility project started by Kohei Yoshino if you are interested in tracking, documenting, or otherwise learning about backward compatibility and regressions in Firefox.

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. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week.
