Christmas is coming soon :christmas_tree: but before it does lets have a last meeting!

Meeting link
Also see the community calendar

It will be an open discussion meeting about how it went this year, and about the new year, of which topics we should focus on and which subcommittees we can form!

After the meeting I was also thinking of organizing an online social mixer in Mozilla hubs, which is a 3D spatial social chat that I got to know from the lockdown era. I’ll share instructions of how to join that next week. Bring a Christmas hat :santa:

Come and join us for our last meeting of the year!

If enough people are joining, we can go and mingle afterwards in mozilla hubs! Here is the link to that: Jumbo Worried Park | Hubs by Mozilla
