Summary of Mozilla Trip to Stanford
pavlov, alecf, putterman, mscott and sspitzer head over to Sweet Hall. Or "Hall Sweet Hall", when you live there for days on end because of CS248.
Pizza, cokes, Mozilla t-shirts, stickers and CD's are doled out. Over pizza, the five of us answer questions individually, talking to, and meeting the students and the non-students who came to the event.
Short presentation about Mozilla. Topics included:
1) Introduction to Mozilla and mozilla.org
2) Current state of Mozilla: working on M16, working on features for Beta 2.
4) Web based development tools: Tinderbox, Bugzilla, Bonsai, LXR
5) Community: newsgroups and IRC
6) Way to contribute, examples:
7) Examples of past and current external contributors and their contributions
(This was off the top of our heads. The mozilla.org credits page has the whole list.)
(* now part of Netscape, paid to contribute to Mozilla)
8) Open internships and jobs, for those who want to get paid to contribute.
(Hey, student loans got to be paid back eventually.)
9) question / answer session
Trip to Denny's. (It's never too late for "Moon Over My Hammies".)
Overall, it was a successful visit. Free stuff was given out. Questions got answered. Mozilla got hyped.
We plan on going back to Sweet Hall next year. And hopefully, to other schools.
