MDN/MDN 2014 Archives
The Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) is a web development resource that anyone can contribute to. With your help, we hope to build resources for a better web, regardless of brand, browser or platform. The site has also been known by its project name, "Devmo" (short for "DEVeloper.Mozilla.Org"), or Mozilla Developer Center (MDC). You can learn more about the history of MDN on the About MDN page.
Objectives of MDN
- Support the Mozilla Mission by surfacing & creating relevant content and resources for developers
- Engage the developer community across technologies and grow Mozilla contribution
- MDN is the top search result & most trafficked web developer resource site
