MAOW London Rundown

On Wednesday, a very hot day in London Town, the last day in June, we had a Mozilla Add-ons Workshop. It was a day without football, and while England may have been knocked out, everyone seemed in fine spirits. A fitting day, as Mozilla Add-ons was fast approaching the 2 billion download mark. A fine achievement and testament to the extensibility of the Firefox and Mozilla platforms.

Nick and Justin from the AMO team flew in from the US as did Myk from the Jetpack team, and we were joined by a troupe from the Mozilla Europe offices in Paris. I spoke on Mobile add-ons and we covered a bunch of other topics, keeping the attendees engaged for over 3 hours. The big hits seemed to be Myk demoing the Add-ons Builder, and Paul Rouget doing his HTML5 and Web.Next demos.

So I’ll leave with a thought, feedback welcome. Given that these events are about more than add-ons, morphing to include Web tech in general, should we re-brand these events to ‘Mozilla Hacks Workshop’ or something similar?
