Friends of Mozilla Friends of Mozilla

  • Big thanks to everyone from IT, Release Engineering, Cloud Services, Foundation Operations, Automation, QA, Developer Services, and even some developers (way too many people to name, and probably some from departments I didn't list) who pitched in the latter half of this last week and over the weekend to patch and reboot servers after the glibc zero-day. Thanks for your efforts in keeping our employees, community members, and users safe!
  • Very big thanks to everybody involved in our new social support program. Special thanks to Andrew, Swarnava, Daniela, Berni, Benny, Stefan and Ghaith for being super active and 100% awesome!
  • Thanks to new Mozilla Hacks authors who published on Hacks in recent weeks: Tanvi Vyas, Stephanie Hobson, Kartikaya Gupta, April King, and Stuart Colville. Great posts on GA, HTTPS, APZ, CSP etc. For more than just the acronyms, you'll want to read the posts!

Building Products with Partners: Monthly Speaker Series with April Underwood of Slack

  • Time: 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm UTC
  • Location: Mozilla SF + Air Mozilla
  • Topic: Building Products with Partners: Interview with Slack VP April Underwood

Building products is complex. Building products with partners, considerably moreso. Varying missions, resources, goals, strategies and cultures pose challenges. But partnering well on products is often worth the effort. This month April Underwood, head of all product & partnerships at Slack, will draw from her experiences at Google, Twitter, Travelocity and more to help us navigate the complexities of marrying products and partnerships. She'll be interviewed by our very own Bertrand Neveux, who has built products with partners for most of his career at and leading up to Mozilla.

  • Speaker: April Underwood is VP of Product at Slack, a messaging platform that has evolved into a diverse ecosystem of partners. There, she drives key growth initiatives and oversees platform products, partnerships, API integrations and developer relations. She previously worked on products for Travelocity, Apple, Google, Climate Corp (Weatherbill). Just before joining Slack, April led teams of Product Managers as Director of Product on Twitter’s fast-growing Advertising (Ads API, ads.twitter.com) and Data (Firehose, Gnip) products. She was also a PM for the Tweet Button and Twitter API, and built Twitter's Business Development team from the ground up to strike strategic partnerships with firms including Google, Microsoft, Amazon, EA, Salesforce and Adobe. And while she used to write code (and sometimes writes term sheets as an angel investor), her first love is building and leading product teams and working with engineers and designers to build and launch great products that people want to use.
  • Host: Bertrand Neveux
  • Questions: Submit questions for April during the event on IRC #AirMozilla.

The limit is 3 minutes per topic. 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. The meeting is streamed in a 4:3 format in order to allow for split screen. If your slides are 16:9 "widescreen" format, please indicate in the "Sharing" column below.
