How non-developers can help developers?

  • Speaker: Mounir Lamouri
  • Audience type: Non-developers but still a little bit technical people. Being able to run a simple command line tool, reading basic javascript or using non-advanced bugzilla features is the minimum requirement. Being able to write patches or read C++ is not a requirement.
  • Summary: Gecko and Firefox development is a very technical and highly time consuming task. You might be a long time Mozilla contributor with some technical skills but without writing any patch. However, you do not have to write patches to help with development: there are a lot of tasks that requires a very low technical level (see Audience type) and a very short period of time (from a few seconds to half an hour) that can help a lot.
