My name is Anthony Hughes (typically go by ashughes) and I work as a quality engineer on Mozilla's DOM team from Mozilla's office in Vancouver, Canada.

I was introduced to open source (and Mozilla) in 2006 by David Humphrey, a professor at Seneca College in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. After volunteering for a few years, I transitioned to being a paid contributor in 2010. Starting out as an add-on reviewer I became involved with QA (quality assurance), testing Firefox features, driving Firefox releases, developing strategies, and running test events for the community. I lead a QA strategy to ship the first version of Firefox Hello (WebRTC based calling in the browser) and developed experiments to test GPU Process (a foundational piece of the Quantum architecture).

I am currently a member of the Product Integrity group working on improvements in automation coverage.

When I'm not working on Firefox I volunteer with the Green Party of Canada, Green Party of British Columbia, and Green Party of Vancouver.

In my spare time I'm usually hiking up some mountain or just traveling somewhere new with my partner.
