Add-on-Con 2010

This Wednesday and Thursday, the Computer History Museum in Mountain View will be overrun with add-on developers eager to learn, collaborate, and network at this year’s Add-on-Con. I’ll be speaking at a number of sessions for the third year, and am looking forward to seeing familiar faces and first-time attendees.

If you’ll be attending (or even if you aren’t), be sure to join us after the first day’s training sessions for the Mozilla social from 5 – 9pm. Learn more and RSVP here.
