Developers are the fabric of the web - both as consumers and contributors. Here I highlight some key ways developers can contribute to the health of the web through a few things going on at Mozilla, and why doing them helps the web overall.
I work at Mozilla. Our mission is very aligned to core attributes of the Internet: a public resource that is shapeable by anyone regardless of location or title.
Christian touched on lots of ways to keep the web healthy in his talk earlier today.
MOZILLA IS WHAT EXACTLY?
non-proﬁt. under 1K employees. a budget barely a fraction of who else is in our markets. as a non-proﬁt, we answer to users, not shareholders.
ENOUGH ABOUT US….
Again my role at Mozilla is in our Developer Relations group. We not only focus on developers, but we are comprised OF developers….and this is what they
(and you can) do!
