Upcoming Events

This Week

  • FYI: The Internet and Mobile world expo last week was a massive success. According to the organisers the Romanian community was amazing to work with and we were the most professional and not "sales" booth showing off both Flame devices and tablets and answering a lot of people's requests. We also managed to get a 3D photo scanning company excited about MozJPEG and Chris Heilmann's presentation on mobile trends and future was standing room only. The following speaker training hints at some great talks by reps coming from Romania soon. A massive thank you to the Romanian community for all their efforts.
