|Online registration required|
|In collaboration with the German community|
What is the MAOW?
Have you always dreamed of going behind the scenes of Firefox ? Are you a Web developer (or not yet!) and have you always wished to make your first Firefox extension ? As an Add-ons developer, you are familiar with XUL, overlays, chrome, but have never dared go further?
This is the opportunity for you to make your wish come true: the next Mozilla Add-ons Workshop is coming to Berlin, on Saturday, 28th of March! In collaboration with the German Xul community, the MAOW will be a day of workshops and presentations (mostly in German, but also English) about Mozilla Technologies, and more particularly about Add-ons.
The schedule includes workshops that will teach you how to make your first extension, many presentations of new Mozilla technologies, conferences on how to hack and contribute to Firefox ... and on top of this, you'll be able to discuss with skillful developers, along with a nice cup of coffee. And not to forget to mention your own demonstrations of Add-ons and of XulRunner applications !
And last but not least, we have the honor to announce the presence of Rey Bango, Community Manager for Mozilla Add-ons, and of Paul Rouget, Mozilla Tech Evangelist, as well as many active members of the Mozilla community.
Web developers, hackers, C++ developers, XUL developers, or bloggers, journalists and people just plain curious about Firefox Add-ons : EVERYONE IS WELCOME and ENTRANCE IS FREE. If you want to attend, please make sure to register.
- Propose a base for discussions and exchange for XUL developers and non developers.
- Encourage and facilitate the creation and diffusion of Add-ons by German developers.
- Promote a local Mozilla ecosystem.

The MAOW Berlin will take place at the C-Base Raumstation (see map here).

The closest train station is Jannowitzbruecke S-Bahn station. When you arrive at the station, simply exit to the west (it's the only exit, anyway); when coming out of the building you should see a bridge.Cross the bridge and turn left to walk along the shore. Walk for about 150m - and the way ends at a fence.
You are now standing right before a red building - and the c-base is right in front of you on ground level.
For more information on C-Base, please visit http://c-base.org
All participants are asked to register by filling in the MAOW Berlin registration form here.
Food and Drinks
There's nothing worse than hacking on an empty stomach - so we'll make sure to serve free coffee throughout the day. Free Pizza and non-alcoholic drinks will be served for lunch, and beer will be served in the evening to close out the workshop. Once the free beer runs out, don't worry, you will still be able to purchase drinks at the c-base bar for the rest of the evening. :)
All speakers at the MAOW will be fully sponsored. Hotel, food and travel expenses will be fully reimbursed by Mozilla Europe.
To be reimbursed, please send all scanned receipts and the filled-out expense form to William Quiviger (william @ mozilla dot com)
Sunday Hack Session
For those hard-core developers, please note that there will be a small Open Dev Day the following Sunday (same place), so feel free to join in on the fun and bring your laptop to hack away :)
