Friends of Mozilla Friends of Mozilla

  • A huge THANK YOU to Mexico community members Alejandro Gomez, Mauricio Navarro and Luis Sanchez, who did a great job as instructors / organizers of a Firefox OS application development training in conjunction with the University Corporation for the Development of the Internet (CUDI), which ran from October 2 to 4 at the National Polytechnic Institute, a top public college in Mexico.
  • Thanks to the Mozilla German community and Mozilla Berlin office, for representing at Berlin TVHackDay and for help with promoting the DT Privacy Symposium - happening in Berlin on Oct 23, with some Mozilla Berlin speakers. Thanks André, Mario, and EVERYONE ELSE!

Upcoming Events

This Week

Monday, 19 October

Tuesday, 20 October

  • Building and shipping software at Facebook
    • Tuesday, October 20 - noon PT / 3pm ET / 7pm UTC
    • Mozilla Mountain View + [1]
    • Blurb: Facebook has over 1 billion monthly active web users and pushes new versions of its website twice a day. At the same time, Facebook also has over 1 billion monthly mobile users and pushes new versions of its 6+ mobile apps every 1-2 weeks. Shipping at this speed and scale is driven by a very small Release Engineering team with a large supporting cast. Learn about the cutting-edge tools, distributed systems, processes, and culture Facebook relies on to ship effectively.
    • Speaker: Former Firefox Release Manager Christian Legnitto, who has spent the last four years shipping software at Facebook.
    • Questions: #airmozilla on IRC
  • Mozilla Github security changes for third-party application access
    • tl;dr: 3rd-party applications will lose access to the Mozilla organization in GitHub at 1700 UTC / 1000 PDT unless they are pre-approved. Very old SSH keys may also lose access if they are not verified at https://github.com/settings/ssh .
    • Traditionally 3rd party applications have had full access to all repositories (public and private) for an organization when any member enables them. When combined with aggressive 3rd party applications many of our repositories are divulging information unintentionally. Github recently changed the way they do application permissions and we're enabling their new system.
    • Questions: If you run into any problems with Github, please join us in #github or email github-owners@m.o and we'll get you fixed up. Thanks!

October Brantina: Data As Empathy

Thursday, October 22 - 9am PT / noon ET / 4pm UTC Mozilla Mountain View + Air Mozilla

To build products people love, you must understand those people. User research and user-centered design help get us there, but once we have a sense of how our audiences think and behave, how can we go beyond the anecdotal to extrapolate to the macro? What ways can we better understand the needs of millions of users who think, act and operate differently than us?

Our October speaker Frances Haugen will share from her product management and software engineering experiences with products used by millions of Google and Yelp customers. She'll help us understand how data - done 'right' - connects us to millions of users we don't know personally. And she'll outline what doing data right means for product development, and how product owners can build things their users love.

Speaker: As both a Senior Product Manager, Software Engineer and Data Scientist for companies including Yelp and Google, Frances has worked at the intersection of data, design and humans throughout her career. An Electrical and Computer Engineering undergrad, Frances says she sees the world as comprised of hi and low cast filters.

Host: Matt Grimes, User Advocacy

Questions: Submit questions for Frances during the event on IRC #AirMozilla.
