All-hands Status Meeting Agenda

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

Friends of Mozilla

  • Big thanks to Ashish Sakreen, Varun Joshi, and Njira Perci who have all recently contributed their first patch to Balrog (our update server).
  • To William Quiviger who’s leaving Mozilla next month. Your vision and leadership have been key for the organization during the past 8 years. Mozilla Reps, the current Participation Team, most of our local communities and many other links and bridges between staff and the volunteer community wouldn’t be possible without you. Thanks!
  • To the team of contributors who gave talks and represented Mozilla at FOSSASIA in Singapore this past weekend: Anivar Aravind, Ram Dayal Vaishnav, Rizky Ariestiyansyah, Robert Reyes. Big thanks!

Upcoming Events

Wednesday, 23 March

Thursday, 24 March

  • The Role of a Product Manager – and Everyone Else: Monthly Speaker Series: 10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET / 5:00pm UTC @ Mozilla MV + Air Mozilla

“The job of a product manager is to help your team (and company) ship the right product to your users.” Seems simple – but anyone who has worked on a product knows it’s not. At what point are you ready to ship? What is the right product? How do you know when you’ve built it? And often more complicated than it sounds: who are your users?

  • Speaker:

As an investment partner at Greylock, Josh Elman invests in entrepreneurs building social networks and platforms, mobile apps, new media, and connected devices. Before joining Greylock, Josh was the product lead for growth and relevance at Twitter, growing Twitter’s active user base by nearly 10x. Prior to Twitter, Josh worked on the platform at Facebook and led the launch of Facebook Connect. Josh was an early employee at LinkedIn and helped establish early models for user growth and launched v1 of LinkedIn Jobs. Josh also held roles leading product management for Zazzle, and product and engineering for RealJukebox and RealPlayer at RealNetworks.

Privacy Lab at GitHub 6-8pm


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.
