Donovan Preston (feed) – Writes: “At Mozilla I’m working on dom.js, a project to implement the browser’s DOM apis in pure JavaScript. dom.js will be useful for anyone using JavaScript outside of a browser, such as developers implementing server side applications using Node.js, and the project is also helping to uncover bugs in the various HTML specifications which were not obvious before. My main background has been in the Python community for the last 10 years, where I worked on a number of Open Source projects such as Eventlet, Nevow, and Twisted.” [Editors Note: Awesome bug]
