MDN’s First Annual Web Developer & Designer Survey
Today we are launching our first annual MDN Developer & Designer Needs Survey. Web developers and designers, we urge you to participate!

Your participation will influence how browser vendors like Mozilla, Google, Microsoft, and Samsung prioritize feature development.
Owning it: browser compatibility data and open source governance

Developer Roadshow 2019 returns with VR, IoT and all things web
Mozilla Developer Roadshow is a meetup-style, Mozilla-focused event series for people who build the web. In 2017, the Roadshow reached more than 50 cities around the world sharing highlights of Mozilla and Firefox technologies. Now, we’re back! To open our 2019 series, Mozilla presents two events with VR visionary Nonny de la Peña and the Emblematic Group in Los Angeles and in New York.

Forging Better Tools for the Web
2017 was a big year for Firefox DevTools. We updated and refined the UI, refactored three of the panels, squashed countless bugs, and shipped several new features.

How we rebuilt the viewsourceconf.org website
There are a lot of interesting challenges when working with legacy code at a large scale, but rebuilding from scratch usually isn’t an option. Recently we had the chance to start fresh and rebuild Mozilla's View Source website for the upcoming conference in London. Here are a few highlights of the architectural decisions we made to make the site faster, more secure, and more reliable.
