Proposed Track: Community Building & Collaboration

Summary: 2011 was a great year for the Front End Developers in Brazil and Mozilla was very involved. In this talk we will make an overview about how JavaScript developer communities have grown in Brazil, how it's related to Mozilla and how important it is to improve their engagement on Mozilla even further, so 2012 can be even better. We will talk about conferences organized by these groups and how they influenced in new groups and conferences. we will also discuss about the maturity of developers in areas related to client side development. And let's also check some experiments and demos created by people from those communities.

To Be Completed by the Audience

Submit a Question for the Speaker(s) here:

  • Can you add demos to your work? or any reference. JS and front-end is a topic that interests me.
    • The planning is to show how JavaScript developers wasn't connected as a community and how this reflected as a low knowledge share. Most people still think w3schools is a sub site from W3C and was using that as the only ref. MDN came to change it, but we needed a channel to spread this, as the market was searching more and more for good developers. We also needed people to collaborate on MDN. In 2011 we started creating events like FrontInRio and BrazilJS, and had a big from Mozilla to make it happen. Beyond the events, we started local communities as jQuery Brail, RioJS, RSJS, SampaJS, BeagaJS, PernambucoJS, etc and now the communities are very connected and sharing knowledge, as it reflects on people creating projects for Mozilla Demo Studios and other colaborations on MDN.
