Suggested Tiles for Firefox update

Patrick joined the call to update Reps about suggested Tiles in Firefox.

This week is going to be announced that it’s landing in beta starting with US users.

Firefox will use locally use the history to suggest interesting tiles for the user and it’s going to be super easy to opt-out or hide tiles you are not interested in. Firefox is the one deciding which tiles to show, not the partners.

Reps can be involved with this projects in two ways:

  • Suggesting community tiles.
  • Helping to curate relevant local content from partners.

Patrick will work with the Reps team to open this opportunity and to improve localization around this announcement and the technical details.

We have opened a discourse topic to ask any questions you might have.

Staff onboarding

@george would love to know if a few volunteers would be excited to help out with new staff onboarding.

Requires availability at 17:15 UTC on Mondays for a 15min presentation, the benefit is that we would provide public speaking/presentation training and coaching and you will talk to new hires about the community and how awesome it is.

Business card generator

@helios needs help with the business card generator, which is written in nodejs.

Original generator idea.

Firefox e10s

@lshapiro needs help to test multiprocess in Firefox Developer Edition and add-ons.

Whistler WorkWeek – Reimbursements

We are only one month to the workweek and there might be some questions about how to help volunteers that need reimbursements.

Reps will be reached out from Mozillians for reimbursement, so help them as better as possible to make the reimbursement smooth.

There will be an event created on reps portal to use on the budget form, otherwise add the mozillians page URL as event in the request form (or Reps profile URL).

Contact your mentor if you have doubts about reimbursing without an event, other questions reach out to @franc.

Mozilla Reps SEA (SouthEast Asia) Online Meetup

The next online meetup of ReMo SEA will be on Fri 22 MAY 2015 at 1200Z (UTC)

This is a monthly meet-up held by @bobreyes. Reps based in nearby countries (i.e. China [including Hong Kong], Taiwan, Japan and Korea) are also welcome to attend the online meetup, even people from Europe/Americas are invited to join!

They will share more details once the meet-up is over.

Full raw notes.

Don’t forget to comment about this call on Discourse and we hope to see you next week!
