With the Mozilla moniker, many people believe that the Hacks blog is only about Mozilla products or news. Therefore, I wanted to take the chance to enlighten you and also invite you to be a part of creating content here.
What we cover here
The goal and objective of Mozilla Hacks is to be one of the key resources for people developing for the Open Web; talking about both news and in-depth descriptions of technologies and features. This means that as long as it’s about open technologies, we want to share all that information, tips, tricks and learnings with you.
We’re Mozilla, and for us it is key to be a web browser agnostic resource, and it’s exactly the same with MDN (Mozilla Developer Network). The content here is written by a lot of different authors, where about half of them aren’t part of or associated with Mozilla in any way – they just do good things for the Open Web, and we believe that deserves exposure, and that it will be beneficial to you.
Allow me to also emphasize that Mozilla Hacks is not a press release channel, we work hard to make everything we cover to be informational, practical and inspirational for you.
More information is outlined in the guidelines for Mozilla Hacks.
Mozilla Hacks is a place based on mutual respect and understanding, and the way we address each other is supposed to reflect that. We expect anyone writing or commenting to use proper language and refrain from insulting other people. If you ask a question here, give feedback and more, you deserve a reply from us. And when we talk about things – even though we might disagree – we all should and are entitled to always be met with respect and a proper behavior.
Write for us!
We know that a lot of you reading this have great knowledge, skill sets and experiences, and we would be very happy to help and support you in sharing it with the world and fellow developers.
We have had hundreds of people writing and collaborating in content for Hacks, and if you write two posts or more, you’ll show up in great company among all our fantastic authors!
Talk to me
For me personally, I’ve been running Mozilla Hacks as its Editor for about two years now, and I’m constantly on the lookout for good content that web developers writing for the Open Web, with open technologies, can learn from. I.e. topics that I’d love to read about myself.
I would be very happy for you to reach out to me at robert [at] mozilla [dot] com or via @robertnyman on Twitter – I’m always interested in discussing the web, technology and the ideas you might have. Talk to me. :-)
