FfxOS Launch Cantina

October 28th, 2013 | Category: News and Events

On August 22, Mozilla took an afternoon to celebrate the launch of our brand new mobile OS. MozSpaces across the globe were festooned with orange and blue balloons. In Toronto, programmers traded their keyboards for photo booths, and in Portland, mice were replaced with pints of locally brewed beers. All of our contributors and employees, as well as our families, were welcome to celebrate a job well done after a successful launch!

Re-sponsor-bilities

October 28th, 2013 | Category: Mozilla Spaces

It is always so exciting to see our MozSpaces buzzing with with contributors and hackers! Active areas that support our huge open source community world wide are a key part of Mozilla’s modus operandi. WPR works with event sponsors to make sure that we remain welcoming to the community, as well as for Mozillians all over the world.

Here are the re-sponsor-bilities of an event sponsor:
– Make an event request in ServiceNow. This ensures your event does not conflict with any other events in the space. It also helps WPR coordinate with caterers, janitorial, building staff, etc.
– Schedule your room on Zimbra.
– Stay with your event! You are the line of communication between WPR and our visitors. Please do not leave before the event is over.
– Return the space to a clean and welcoming state after your event.

WPR at Summit 2013

October 28th, 2013 | Category: News and Events

Workplace Resources was so excited to share our goals with the Mozilla community at Summit! Talking to members of our community face-to-face really helped us connect with the needs of Mozillians world wide. We were inspired by the talks and break-out groups that we joined and we came away with a better understanding of Mozilla’s history, mission and goals. If you missed it you can see WPR’s presentation right here.

Mozillians were on hand to demo our products and answer questions about Mozilla. 1,250 people showed up on Saturday, and more than 2,100 on Sunday. Another splendid example of Mozilla partnering with members of the community to create a hugely successful event that enriches everyone involved.

Mountain View’s Fancy New Digs

October 28th, 2013 | Category: Mozilla Spaces

Mozilla’s new space in Mountain View at┬á331 E Evelyn Avenue is developing at an exciting rate! 110 days of demolition, reconstruction and reorganization started on August 12. We are aiming for a February 2014 move-in date.

The chaos before the creation

The new space is being designed around employee feedback, with an emphasis on workspace useability. Acoustic privacy around individual work spaces, as well as more conference rooms with Vidyo will make the MV2014 a haven for individual as well as collaborative projects.

Further updates are posted at the MV2014 Evelyn Avenue mana page

  • Thanks to our general contractor and our fantastic IT team you can now view the on-site construction as it happens on live webcams:
    • This is a view from the new Commons area towards the lobby.
    • Here’s a view of phone booths.
    • And this is the entry walkway from the lobby.
  • Updated plans (1st & 2nd floors + outdoor site plan) have also been posted to the mana page.
The MV2014 team loves hearing from you!  Please continue to email feedback, suggestions, questions to: mv2014@mozilla.com
