This Friday is Add-on-Con 2009, in its second year as the only conference dedicated to browser add-ons. It takes place at the Computer History Museum again in Mountain View, California, so I’m hoping the turnout is as good or better than last year. I was very excited when I first learned that Add-on-Con would happen again this year, as I had such a great time at last year’s event, despite having 0 hours of sleep the night before.
Mozilla will be participating heavily in the event again this year as a platinum sponsor and speaking at quite a few sessions:
- I’ll take part in the opening keynote panel on add-on marketplaces
- Aza Raskin, Chris Finke, and myself will hold a panel on the Future of the Firefox Add-ons Ecosystem
- Aza Raskin will talk in depth about the latest on Jetpack
- Mark Finkle will tell add-on developers what they need to know to get their add-ons ready for Firefox for mobile
- and, by popular demand, Mike Shaver will reprise his role in the closing keynote panel on the Future of the Web Browser
If you’ll be in the Bay Area this week and are interested in add-ons, be sure to register for Add-on-Con before it’s too late! Even if you’re not going to Add-on-Con, don’t forget that we have an add-ons meetup at Mozilla HQ on Thursday night.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone for great add-on events on Thursday and Friday!
