Coming up: Webdev “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on reddit

Fred Wenzel

Update, Jan 20: The Reddit AMA is going on today! Click here to join us and ask questions!


As web developers at Mozilla, we take pride in making web applications that are used by millions of people every day. We work hard to promote the Open Web, both by showing off what the latest in web technology can do and by actively developing our projects in the open: as open-source projects on github.

Whenever we go to meetups, conferences, or chat with community members, people ask all sorts of questions, like:

  • How do you make sure your websites are snappy for users across the globe?
  • I found a bug in one of your websites and would like to help fix it! How do I get started?
  • What frameworks do you use? And how many servers do you run certain projects on?
  • Why are you all so good-looking?

To open the conversation to a larger community, we’ve decided to run an “IAmA” on Reddit, on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 Friday, January 20, 2012.

We’ll open a thread there in the morning, Central European Time, and will have plenty of people on the Webdev team participating until the evening, Pacific Time, so we should be able to touch most time zones one way or another.

Whether you are a seasoned Mozillian or a “newbie” in the community, whether you are a passionate Firefox advocate or pragmatic browser user with an inquiring mind, step by and talk to us! We’d love to hear from you.

We are Web Developers on the Mozilla Webdev team: Ask Us Anything.
