Mozilla i Sverige: Det blir kul!


I am very excited to announce that we will hold a Mozilla get-together on the evening of June 2nd, starting at 6pm at the delightful offices of bwin games in Stockholm.  You can register here.

Speakers

We will have four talks on different aspects of the project:

David Tenser will discuss SUMO, community-based support for Mozilla;
Carsten Book (Tomcat) will talk about QA of an open source project;

and Robert Nyman will give his acclaimed (by me at least) talk on Developing add-ons for Firefox.

And, even more importantly, we will have pizza and beer and a chance to get to know eachother.   All details are on the event wiki.

Attending

Everyone with an interest in the above topics, Mozilla, software freedom or the open web is most welcome to attend.  You don’t need to speak Swedish or English to attend, but speaking at least one will be a definite advantage.  But you do need to register, as we can only manage with so many people.

Getting there

We will be at the offices of bwin games, Klarabergsviadukten 82, Stockholm.

We are very grateful to our hosts, bwin, for their help.  During the daytime the facility is home to the 400 employees of bwin Games, the leading developer of next generaton online poker games and digital entertainment.  The office is a high-rise tower with a great view of Stockholm, and is just next to Stockholm central station (literally, just over the road).

It is really easy to get to if you are in the Stockholm area.  For those who are not, please get in touch with me as I’d like to know where you would like to meet next time.

As far as I know, it has been a while since there was a meeting of the Mozilla community in Sweden.  I am really looking forward to meeting up.  Vi ses!

(Förresten, jag kan lite svenska men eftersom jag bara bott här i två år är jag fortfarande ingen expert. Om du vill får du gärna skriva till mig på svenska, men jag kanske svarar på engelska!)

  2. I’ve sent an email to my boss to see if there’s any possibility for me to take the evening off. Fingers crossed.
