All the open doors

Having noticed that Mozilla is at a moment where there are quite a number of different opportunities to contribute and get involved, for users with all kinds of skills and interests (app developers, web developers, artists, designers), I set out to compile a list for the Mozilla Brazil community.

Alix pointed me to the contribute page, and there’s this page from the mozilla.com website, but I also wanted to list the timely events going on, because they’re hard to keep track if you don’t follow all the news pretty closely, and my friend Marcio commented that he believes that these kind of events have a great engaging component, which I absolutely agree: the challenge of a deadline together with a specific goal is a great motivation to get started.

So here’s a list of what I know is currently going on, bonus added: the target audience, which is useful in helping the new members themselves to find their way in the community and their interests.

Some of these are close to their deadlines, but the list is not intended to be a final resource, just a beginning🙂 Listing all of these helps put on perspective how many cool and interesting things are going on.

There are other activities which are not time sensitive but are relatively new engaging points worth mentioning: Creating Ubiquity commands or new Personas, participating in the Creative Collective and the Test Pilot. (Or our great Nightly testers)

Hope this comes in handy the next time you want to help a new community member seeking advice on how to be part of the Mozilla world.

  1. You may be also interested in the current project of rethinking the “get involved” page – http://davidwboswell.wordpress.com/2009/09/14/rethinking-how-to-get-people-involved-with-mozilla/🙂

  2. Thanks for putting together that list — I think one of the hardest things for people new to Mozilla is dealing with the huge amount of information that’s out there and finding out what they’re interested in, so it’s helpful to post lists like this.

    Also as Gandalf mentioned, we’re working on redesigning the Getting Involved page on http://www.mozilla.org. I think this is only going to be useful for people if we can get some existing community members involved to make sure the content is up to date and to help guide people who have questions.

    If you’d be interested in getting involved with this, feel free to contact me and we’ll talk more.

  3. Hi Filipe, I´m searching this old game “pong” to demonstrate this multitouchfunction in an industrial TouchPanel for an HMI show in germany.

    Thank you for any info how to get this game, playable via multitouchscreen.
