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

Huge kudos to Benjamin Kerensa! Benjamin is a super active rep, a former WebFWD Scout and key contributor for Release Management. Most recently served as chief herder for Mozilla's presence at OSCON. He not only spoke, but organized two large social events and Mozilla's social media presence (and more). If that weren't enough, Benjamin also served as a critical subject matter expert on CDNs, sussing out vendors for hosting the Flame developer phone builds. Please take a minute to tweet, email or give Benjamin a fist bump if you are up in PDX!

Many thanks to Linear Li in the Taipei office for producing the first-ever Intern Brownbags on Air Mozilla from the Taipei Office. They're in the Mozilla Intern - 2014, and Taipei channels on AirMo. Borting Chen discusses his work on the Resource Statistics API, Ricky Chien talks about integrating test report coverage into the Gaia unit testing framework, Test Agent, and KD Chang presents work on the MozPost recommendation system and Huhu, a bookmarklet that lets you keep a virtual pet in Firefox.

Nagarjuna Verma and Rahid Hasan of the Mozilla South Asia community are no longer with us as recently reported but their contributions and positive impact in the Mozilla Community will always be remembered.

Thanks to Sami Jaktholm for fixing lots of Devtools bugs including some frequent test failures.

Codingfree is the latest app reviewer to reach level 6 of the reviewer program, with 97,068 points--congrats!

Thanks to erosman and XrXr, new to the add-on review team, who are off to a good start and have helped greatly reduce the length of the AMO review queues.

Björn Steinbrink has written dozens of optimizations for Rust. In the last two weeks he taught LLVM to reuse empty stack slots, making Rust significantly more efficient.

Congrats to Clint Talbert, this week's community building superstar!
