Join us for a "Mozilla Hacking" Day in Berlin!

What is the event about?

Mozilla community members give technical presentations about their current work on different projects at Mozilla (e.g. a look at the test infrastructure used at Mozilla, an update on the new multiprocessing work for Firefox). Later on all attendees are invited to hack on different Mozilla Projects: Firefox Core, Firefox OS, Firefox for Android, Testing Infrastructure, Webmaker, and more - Happy hacking! As there will be people from different areas of the Mozilla projects this is a good opportunity to get started with hacking the Mozilla code base or ask questions about the c No idea what to hack on?
