Mozilla Labs in Berlin: Hack Days

Announcing three great opportunities to hang out and hack with Mozilla Labs! As part of the Labs whistle-stop tour through Europe, we will be hosting Hack Days at c-base in Berlin. These sessions will be super informal and totally flexible – join for any part of the day to code, ask questions, or just hang out. Meet the leads for high-profile future-of-the-web experiments including Weave, Ubiquity, Geode, and Personas.

  • Lightening presentations every two hours on Labs projects. Open slots for anyone else who wants to do a lightening presentation on their own project.
  • Showcase presentations for projects people have been working on during the Hack day
  • Workshops for web best practices
  • Previews of new content features in Firefox 3.1 (SVG Transforms!)
  • Workshops and tutorials for making Ubiquity commands
  • Competitions around story boarding new concepts, creating Ubiquity commands, and Geode-enabled sites

    speed up firefox has a useful guide on speeding up firefox for broadband users. basically after getting to the hidden config settings you set the browser to request more data that it usually does.

    1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

    network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

    Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

    2. Alter the entries as follows:

    Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

    Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

    Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

    3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

    If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!
