about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.
Survey: Calling all Mozillians
David Eaves has asked our community to share their experiences as contributors by sending feedback via the Mozilla Volunteer Contributor Survey. Feedback is essential for assessing how well we are engaging and empowering Mozillians, and to improve the contributor experience so please fill it out.
Come and join us in Dublin, Ireland on November 2 to discuss how we can build our irish community and get more active contributors on board. If you’re attending the Mozilla Festival in London, this is a great opportunity to hop across the pond and get involved.
Hive NYC Learning
Mark Surman announced recently that Mozilla is taking over stewardship of Hive NYC (who co-developed Hackasaurus with Mozilla Labs ) a network of over 30 organizations that run out-of-school learning programs using web tools and web culture to help kids learn about whatever they are passionate about.
Last week we relaunched the Firefox Affiliates program a one stop place for finding and sharing Firefox and Mozilla download buttons. Please sign up to be a Firefox Affiliate today. Host a button on your blog or website and win all kinds of great Firefox prizes. If you’re interested in becoming a part of the Firefox Affiliates team, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or come and hang out with us in #affiliates in irc.
