As Mozilla we’re working to help to keep the internet healthy, open and accessible to all but we can’t do it alone. We need to engage with people who are on the front lines of building the internet: web developers, designers, and other technologists who care about the open web. We need to get them excited about Mozilla as a technology leader.
Larissa Shapiro, and the D&I Team at Mozilla have been busy this year, developing a 2.0 of the Mozilla Community Participation Guidelines(CPG), and we are bringing this draft to you, Mozilla’s community, for feedback before release in early April.

Add-ons provide a safe, simple, and powerful way to personalize your browsing experience. With WebExtensions APIs, it’s easier than ever to create extensions that can be easily ported to Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and Opera. Through this activity you’ll help connect new developers with an opportunity to create add-ons to solve real problems and make their lives and the web better.
Rust is a systems programming language important to the future of the web. It runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. With your help, we want more developers to understand, use and evangelize this language in order to make the web better and more secure.
A-Frame is a web framework for building virtual reality experiences, making it easy for anyone to get involved with virtual reality. Run events to onboard developers into 3D and write some great demos. This will advance WebVR, an open platform for virtual reality that leverages the Web.
Web Compatibility, the ability for all Web content to run in all browsers, is important. There are multiple web content engines running on multiple devices, and sometimes with a little testing and some small tweaks to their site, developers can ensure that more users can have the full experience that is desired. Test sites and spread the message about compatibility.
