  9. Mozilla in Brazil: FISL 10

    FISL took place in Porto Alegre, Brazil from June 24th through June 27th and had over 8,000 participants. It was the conference's 10th edition, but only the second year for Mozilla.

Thank you to everyone who participated this year, it was a fantastic experience.
