Dates: April 27-29, 2012


  • Online: #devmo on
  • Friday: Mozilla office in Mountain View, California. (Holodeck conference room)
  • Saturday & Sunday: Mozilla office in San Francisco. (Boardroom conference room)


Typically we focus on Web standards (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG, MathML, etc.), but other areas of MDN such as Mozilla technology (apps, BrowserID, XUL, XPCOM, etc.) or the Mozilla project (building, testing, localizing) are all fair game.

Some topic areas where MDN is lacking and needs more content:

  • Kuma
  • BrowserID (Persona)
  • Clean up the guide to XMLHttpRequest. Needs to be turned into a series of pages instead of one monolith, and needs to be browser agnostic.
  • Boot-to-Gecko
  • Big push on CSS Reference and tutorials
  • WebAPI
  • Pick among the many dev-doc-needed bugs
  • Update IndexedDB docs


The following are the times when in-person sprinters are going to be working. Remote sprinters are welcome to work outside these hours, whenever is convenient in your time zone.
