This Month at Mozilla

A lot of exciting things are happening with Participation at Mozilla this month. Here’s a quick round-up of some of the things that are going on!

Mozillians Profiles Got a Facelift:

Since the start of this year, the Participation Infrastructure team has had a renewed focus on making mozillians.org a modern community directory to meet Mozilla’s growing needs.

Their first target for 2016 was to improve the UX on the profile edit interface.

”We chose it due to relatively self-contained nature of it, and cause many people were not happy with the current UX. After research of existing tools and applying latest best practices, we designed, coded and deployed a new profile edit interface (which by the way is renamed to Settings now) that we are happy to deliver to all Mozillians.”
