Jean-Yves Perrier — Mark 57 – The future Firefox
Firefox 57, to be launched in November this year, will bring a new UI, new features, and numerous performance improvements. The talk will present the visible changes and explain what has been done behind the hood, and why we should be excited about the coming of a new generation of browser engines.
Based in London, Jean-Yves works for Mozilla. He created his first Web site in 1995; he started to document and advocate Web technologies in 2010, first as a technical writer, then as the MDN Content Lead. He is now a Senior Program Manager, doing developer outreach.
Let's celebrate Firefox Quantum together in Amsterdam!
• We are working hard to improve the diversity at our meetups. One way we do this is by saving spots for people in underrepresented groups. If you are on the waitlist and believe you are part of an underrepresented group, let one of our organisers know and you will either change your waitlist status (to 'Yes') or bump you up to the top of the waitlist.
