Thanks a lot to the FOSDEM team who allow us to be a part of
their event. Please see http://www.fosdem.org/ for more details
about the location and about what FOSDEM is and what it is
Brian King and myself are volunteering to organize the Mozilla
portion of the event.
We would like to hear from you if you plan to attend the
free Mozilla sessions. When you send us mail, you may optionally
also include a brief paragraph about what portions of the Mozilla
code you are extending or working with, or what project
you are using Mozilla for. (If you send us such a paragraph,
you are granting us permission to publish your name and the short
paragraph on the eu.mozdev.org website.)
Call for speakers
The success of the meeting depends on your contribution!
If you have insights about a portion of the Mozilla project
that you want to share with others, please consider
giving a talk! If you are thinking about it, please contact
Brian King and myself to discuss your ideas.
The exact details are not yet known, but will be announced
on the http://eu.mozdev.org pages at a later time.
Watch out for the forthcoming section "Brussels 2003".
Besides people giving talks, we will be running two
We will have an initial session, where people working
with Mozilla sources can get acquainted with each other.
In that session, people who are interested (and have
said so in advance by mail) can give a short 5-10 minutes
introduction to their particular interest about the Mozilla
project, and possibly a brief high level summary about the
module or project they are working on. We are yet unsure
whether we will have enough time for such a session, though.
In addition we will be having a workshop or tutorial, where we
help curious developers to get started with writing code for
the Mozilla project, giving an overview, and answering questions.
In such a session, several Mozilla hackers could be present,
in the hope we would be able to cover a broad area of possible
questions. We wonder whether this should be done as part of
the FOSDEM tutorials track.
Feedback on these ideas is welcomed.
We look forward to meeting you!
