Project Status Updates (voice updates)

Firefox Mobile

Speaker Location:

Firefox OS

Speaker Location: Asa Dotzler, Mountain View

  • We've got about 500 Mozillians empowered with Flames to date. These are the core Firefox OS teams and those helping get Flames and Firefox OS into amazing shape for our broader community.
  • We're really excited to have more people testing. The Product/UX/Engineering teams need the kind of feedback that only you can provide. To support that, we're going to be opening applications to the Flames for Feeback program (Foxtrot) hopefully in the next week or so. We've got hundreds of Flames to give away to empower our community, including employees and volunteers.
  • The Flame isn't sold out. We're sorting out some issues at the everbuying website but there are more phones to purchase. You did not miss the deadline. Check back in a couple of days.

Grow Mozilla

Speaker Location: San Francisco

Thank you to everyone who joined the Enable communities that have impact Town Hall last week. If you missed it, you can watch the recording on Air Mozilla.

I wanted to follow up with more details about a question we didn't fully discuss -- what does building community look like for each of us?

Here are a couple of things everyone can do that will take you no additional time:

  • Work in the open. We can choose to put something on the public wiki instead of on a private Google Doc or we can post to a public mailing list instead of to a team alias. Choices that promote transparency make it easier for people to participate.
  • Discuss community goals with your team. If your team meetings don't include discussions of how to design for participation and how to grow a community around your work, add this to the agenda. Being mindful and intentional about community building will help with the goal.

WorkDay <-> LDAP Integration Update

  • Although Phase 1 started on Friday, there are things still in motion. Some of these changes are noticable - like your EmployeeID being visible in the Phonebook. Before hitting the DefCon5 button, please understand that your EmployeeID is only visible in Phonebook to you and your manager - no one else can see it. Also, these changes do not affect systems in Mozilla China, Japan, and Taiwan. MoCo can see the changes now, MoFo may not see the changes until tonight or tomorrow.
  • There was some confusion regarding titles - you can still create custom titles in Phonebook - it's just that the formal titles from Workday are now visible in the Phonebook, too.

Thanks to all for your patience as we continue to work on this.

NYC Space Update

Last Friday, EUS completed the build-out of a small Mozilla Space in New York City. The new Space has the following A/V capabilities:

  • A Conference room
  • A small Commons Space

Both areas have Vidyo Capability. Special thanks to the EUS teams for the quick and effective setup. The NYC team felt very taken care of during the process.

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.
