Presentation about Mozilla at INSA Lyon
By Mounir Lamouri on November 17, 2009 - 11:11
Last Friday (November 13 2009), I gave a presentation titled Mozilla and its technologies in the context of the Mozilla Campus Reps program. Indeed, I am a Mozilla Campus Rep at INSA Lyon, my university.
The presentation had four parts. First of them was a classic presentation of Mozilla and Netscape history. Then, a presentation of some Mozilla projects like applications, libraries, tools and especially Mozilla Labs. The real technical part was about the Mozilla Platform (Gecko, XUL, ...). To complete, the Open Web and web standards.
Everything went well. I planned to give a 30-minute to 45-minute length
presentation with 15 minutes of questions but it looks like I had a lot of
things to say and I talked one hour long. Fortunately, there wasn't a
lot of questions so I finished in time.
The most important is I had only good feedback which is pretty cool for a first experience!
The Mozilla campus Reps program wasn't able to send me a swag pack so I asked to Tristan Nitot (Mozilla Europe) who seemed delighted to help. Paul Rouget (Mozilla Europe too) also helped with some advices. A big thank you to both of them!
Finally, you can download my slides. You can also get the source
files here. The slides have been
made in latex with beamer.

It was a nice experience and I'm glad to have spread Firefox and Mozilla!
