Marketplace

Non-verbal: Marketplace team is looking for some app developers to give them feedback on a new way of doing in-app payments. The new process does not require the app developer to run a server. If you are an app developer, thinking of using payments, please join us on the marketplace mailing list or on IRC in #payments.

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.
