Developer Relations
Team Lead: Stormy Peters Mailing List: engagement-developers@lists.mozilla.org
The Developer Relations community's mission is to enable, inspire and collaborate to make the Web the primary platform used to create experiences across all connected devices.
  • We work with product teams to communicate how developers benefit from Mozilla products and open technologies, to achieve our mission and product plans.
  • We provide information, examples, and direct interaction, online and at events, so that developers (within Mozilla and in the broader Web community) understand and adopt open technologies and products.
  • We foster the capabilities of Mozillians to communicate about Mozilla's initiatives and values to developers, so that Mozilla's developer community can grow.

DevRel 2014 Goals

Developer Relations has adopted 5 primary goals for focusing our efforts in 2014. The first two are being measured using external industry benchmarks from Vision Mobile.

  • 24.5 % of mobile web developers using open web technologies. (17%, July 2013.)
  • 24.5% of apps developed in HTML5 across all platforms. (17%, July 2013.)
  • Original goal of 13,000 apps in the Firefox Marketplace; revised goal in June to incorporate quality measure: target is now 6,000 apps coupled with an average of at least one app install per Marketplace visit by consumers (1,448 total app count in July 2013; 4,600 apps with one app instal per MP visit in July 2014)
  • 1,000 developers/month contributing to Developer Relations activities. (473 active MDN doc contributors in July 2013; 710 MDN doc contributors as part of 1073 total active DevRel contributors in July 2014)
  • 30% of web devs that use HTML5 use Firefox Developer Tools as their primary tool set. (15% in July 2014; 21% in July 2014)

A mid-year update on how we are tracking against these goals can be watched on AirMozilla; slides are here.
