In the past we’ve always published a list of web developer features for a release. But the feature list for developers for 3.5 is so long that we thought it might be useful to try and break it down into easy-to-swallow bites. And my suspicion, given the number of comments and the number of daily views this weblog gets, is that it’s actually been useful to people.
We’ve been writing articles on features to get people informed on what the changes are, but we’ve also been featuring demos to get people inspired. Some of them have been built by people at the Mozilla core, but the really great thing that we’ve seen is that people have started to show up and build demos for our project without us having to ask. I think that this points to the fact that people are really bullish on the future of the web. People want to see change, they want to see improvements and they understand that every individual has a role to play in that. To everyone involved, I say thank you. You’re helping to improve the web, one action at a time.
We’re about half way through our 35 days posts and we will continue to make posts. And we’re still looking for help. If you want to get involved, you’re more than welcome to join us. There’s always something that you can do – follow our twitter account, write a demo, document a feature or, really, just start using this stuff. We’re helping to write the future of the web and everyone has a part to play.
