With the Extend Firefox contest over, I wanted to see where entries were coming from so I created some quick charts that show which countries were represented via the various submissions:
These charts show me we need stronger developer outreach outside of North America & Europe. South America, for example, is a hot bed of developer talent (Brazil & Chile come to mind) and helping those developers understand the viability & power of the Mozilla platform is extremely important.
Thankfully, we’ve recently brought on Jorge Villalobos as our Developer Relations Lead. Being based in Central America (Costa Rica to be exact) will definitely allow him to increase the awareness of our tools in the surrounding countries.
A surprise from the stats was India which was 6th on the list of contributed add-ons. This is a geo we need to look at closer to see how we can build stronger developer ties there.
It was really cool to see a nice sampling on countries participating. Great motivation to keep spreading the word worldwide.
