Hi, I’m Nick Nguyen, and I’m the new Add-ons Lead here at Mozilla. Having previously worked on the Delicious Bookmarks extension at Yahoo!, I’ve learned firsthand how Add-ons can be an essential part of life on the internet. I’ll be working with the team and the community to figure out the best direction for AMO as we evolve. Along with the entire Add-ons team, I’ll help drive discussion both within Mozilla and with the greater community on how we can grow and improve.
In 2009, we plan to focus on the following areas:
- Communicating the value of Add-ons to users who will benefit from them
- Improving the sense of community for Add-ons users and developers and fostering open communication between both groups.
- Streamlining and simplifying the process of both developing and submitting Add-ons to AMO.
Of course, like everything else at Mozilla, our decisions don’t happen in a vacuum. As a member of our community, your feedback is invaluable and helps us drive our product direction. I’ll continue to post updates with our thinking on a regular basis, and don’t hesitate to let us know if you have some feedback, positive (yay) or negative (boo, but we need to hear it).
Thanks for reading, and Happy New Year!
Nick Nguyen, Add-ons Lead
