MDN hack day tomorrow in the #mozldn space in London, England

We cleared the aftermath of yesterday’s epic Geek Quiz (photo proof here) but there is no rest for the wicked in the London Mozilla Space. Tomorrow (yes, that day after this one) we’ll run an MDN hack day here in 101 St. Martin’s Lane, London (5 minute footwalk from Leicester Square or 10 from Charing Cross).

If you have no idea what hack day in MDN means, check out Tristan Nitot’s introductory post.

MDN hack day

There are still tickets available, so go to and sign up if you haven’t yet.

There’ll be food (well, Pizza, we thought Fondue would be too much of a mess) and drink (the non-fermented and fermented kind, we don’t discriminate), lots of experts from Mozilla to pester about your wishes for our products and to learn all about what we are doing in London, a few Boot to Gecko phones to play with and quite a few talks to give you inspiration to hack:

    I don’t know how to raise awareness of this bug:

    Having keyboard events work solid is a prerequisite if we want html5 games on Firefox.
    Chrome got it right, so there’s no excuse to see that bug, first reported 6 years ago, lying still :(
