Firefox 3 release party in Tehran was held at the IT Culture Center on Thursday.  About 100-120 people showed up, and it was impressive, considering the event being held in the middle of a long weekend at the summer, which is an ideal time for many for travels.  I spoke at the event on the Persian localization of Firefox, an overview of the history of Firefox and what to expect in Firefox 3.1 and 4, and also an introduction of some very popular Firefox extensions (yeah! that's three talks!).  I think the talks were good, apart from the faulty video projector which threw a shade of blue on all of my carefully crafted slides (sigh).

Here are some blog posts in Persian, and also some pictures.  Here are the full presentation files in OpenDocument Presentation and PDF formats.  Here is a picture of me speaking about the new features in Firefox 3 and here's how the first slide looked under the blue shade of the video projector!

Thanks to Behdad, Hossein, Bahram, and everyone involved in holding this event.  We really need more of these to spread the word; keep up the good work everyone!
