Mozilla Portland Workweek

At the very first day, I went to portland art museum, where over 800 people were gathering for breakfast. I met with many amazing people whom I know them by IRC. But that day, it was my great chance to meet personally. Then headed to attend opening addresses of Mitchel Baker, Mark Surman, Chris Beard, David Slater and many of them.

Then I joined the MDN team meeting. It was great that I saw many faces of MDN people there. Nice to meet them also. Then started brainstorming the ideas with them. That day I had my first meeting with FSA E-Board meeting with members. This was also great.

Next day we started with our December Office Hour . That day was cool for me. But I am excited for. Many FSA around the globe actually attended this and we have given the answers for their questions. Then headed to join the MDN team with different meetings. After lunch I again joined FSA hacksession day1 meeting with discussion of lots for new upcoming features for FSA and all.
