Connected Devices Participation


Welcome to the Connected Devices participation page, your starting point to get involved in Connected Devices, both through our Product Innovation Process and our Community Experimentation Launchpad.

In the next few weeks, we'll be populating this wiki with more resources to help you get involved and start experimenting, prototyping and testing the future of connected devices.

Product Innovation Process

We're ramping up with a product innovation process, and there you can find some projects in progress, with other ones surfacing as they get through the gating process. Continue to look out for opportunities to contribute. Yet don't wait! We want to facilitate building from now.

Participate in the 'official' Product Innovation Process

As identified in the product innovation process section above, some projects running on the train model have many specific contribution opportunities.

Connected Devices at Mozilla embarked on a path by organizing the team around a gated innovation process that has given us some time to evaluate the market and brainstorm ideas that we believe will solve real problems, while considering possibilities that make the most of our unique resources and active community. At this point, we’ve identified and rallied around a shortlist of these ideas, and have our first group of projects in need of contributions from our community of developers and participants. We’ll be looking for feedback while collaborating on code, shipping test builds, aimed at finding a Product/Market Fit. We’ll determine this by evaluating product usage and asking our target users if we’re on the right track. We plan to be scientific, and make these decisions objective and fair, so if we get off track, we can either re-work a solution for more testing, or simply move on to the next idea in the queue.
