Brown Bag, “Analysing Gaia with Semmle”, Max Schaefer

  • Semmle has recently added support for JavaScript to its analysis platform. As one of our first major JavaScript analysis projects, we have analysed recent and historic versions of Gaia, the UI layer of FirefoxOS. In this talk, I will present some of our findings, and show how Semmle’s toolchain can be used to investigate all aspects of a software system, from high-level code quality trends to detailed static analysis questions.
  • Max works as a Research Engineer at Semmle where he is in charge of the JavaScript analysis platform. Prior to joining Semmle, he did a stint as a postdoc at IBM Research, before briefly trying his luck as an Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He holds a doctorate from Oxford University.

CTO Update

Speaker Location: Luke Wagner, remote

  • asm.js / Microsoft update: Microsoft announced work is underway to add asm.js optimizations to IE.
    • ‘asm.js’ is the name the kind of JavaScript produced by tools like Emscripten. While asm.js code runs pretty well in all browsers (it’s just JavaScript), it runs best with specific optimizations and Microsoft is the second browser (after Firefox) to include these specific optimizations. This is very good news for Mozilla since we pioneered asm.js as a way to reliably get near-native performance across browsers without requiring plugins or other non-standard technologies.

  • Congrats to awesome former rep Benny Chandra for helping the Jakarta Post, Indonesia’s leading daily English language newspaper, to launch their official app for Firefox OS. Thank you Benny!

Upcoming Events

  • JFokus Developers Conference from Feb 2nd-4th in Stockholm, Sweden.

    • Florian Scholz speaking on the needs of the modern web: The modern web needs a better programming language and at the same time, there is no way the current one could break existing code on the web.

Tuesday, 03 February

The Forward 2 Web Technology Summit workshops are Tues Feb 3 + Thurs Feb 5 with the main conference happening on Wed Feb 4. Mozilla SF is hosting a workshop on Tues & Thurs, an all-day “deep dive into JS Fundamentals” taught by Bianca Gandolfo and teaching assistants.

If you’re interested in attending the conference and workshop, register at http://forwardjs.com using discount code mozillian-js-fundamentals. This is good for 5 tickets. Make sure you select the “Sessions + 2 day training” ticket and then select “Bianca Gandolfo 2 Day – JS Fundamentals: Objects, Arrays, Functions & Intro to Functional JS” for the class during checkout.

If you’re interested in attending only the conference, register using discount code mozillian-forward. This is good for 5 tickets as well.

Finally, if you miss out on the free 5 tix, you can still get $40 off by using the code “Mozilla-40″ when you register.

  • Mobile Central Europe 2015 from Feb 4th-6th in Warsaw, Poland
    • Lucas Rocha attending
    • MCE started as a conference for developers by developers. This year, we are expanding our horizons to include all mobile creators – developers, designers and tech leaders. We are interested in details, hidden mechanisms, in short – everything behind the scenes that makes the user go WOW! when they download an app.

Thursday, 05 February

  • The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to take a critical vote on net neutrality rules on February 26th. The outcome will have global implications, and could change the nature of the Web. Mozilla has been actively working on this issue for nearly a year, and beginning Feb 5th Mozilla is launching an urgent campaign to connect US citizens with their elected officials before the big FCC vote. Every voice counts, stay tuned for more about this campaign, and announcements in future project calls.
