All-hands Status Meeting Agenda

Items in this section will be shared during the live all-hand status meeting.

Friends of the Tree

Peter Bengtsson for adding the awesome new full-text search bar to Air Mozilla. This a quantum improvement to discoverability on AirMo.

Sheeri Cabral, Selena Deckelmann, Brandon Johnson, Brandon Burton and the team who made the search bar possible by putting the AirMo website up on stilts and sliding a whole new database engine under it… all with only minutes of downtime!

Also, a belated thanks to Sheeri Cabral (DBA), Brandon Burton (WebOps), Dave Lawrence (Bugzilla Developer), and Adrian Fernandez (SRE) for a pretty smooth and successful Bugzilla maintenance on October 12th

Upcoming Events

This Week

Monday, 21 October

  • MAKER PARTY: Highland, Utah: Coder Dojo UT Highland is part of the Coder Dojo global collaboration providing free and open learning to young people, especially in programming technology. Sessions welcome anyone 7 – 17 years old (along with their parents) and cover everything from basic HTML & CSS, to JavaScript, game development and web programming. Most sessions require no prior knowledge!

Wednesday, 23 October

  • MAKER PARTY: Toronto, Canada: Remix the City – Bathurst St workshop for the youth is a photo-walk brought up to date with a new generation of mobile devices, which have the power to enable the youth to capture and tell the stories that matter to them using their favourite language: short online video clips. This new learning experience designed by the team at FabSpaces is also a much needed lecture on the perils of producing video in a hyper-connected world, masked as a super slick mobile application that serves as a portal to a community of engaged kids avidly uncovering the most interesting aspects of their cities.

Thursday, 24 October

  • MAKER PARTY: London, United Kingdom: Code_in a Day is the starting point for anyone seeking to understand digital concepts. The day is designed around a brief: design, build and launch a multi-platform campaign that encourages and rewards customer loyalty. Through this hands-on process you will understand what code is, how it is used and how you can harness your new understanding of it to excel in business. You will learn the roles of different technologies (including html, css and JavaScript, and server-side programming languages and databases). You will gain valuable insight into the design and development process.

Saturday, 26 October

  • MAKER PARTY: Goa, Inda: Webmaker Party Goa will offer sessions to students at National Institute of Technology Goa on Mozilla technologies and Webmaker tools.
