Get Involved: developer.mozilla.org (MDN)



The MDN web docs is Mozilla's technical resource for web developers - containing documentation for open web technologies.

Getting Started

We use Docker for development and deployment. Docker works reasonable well for backend development on a macOS or Linux environment. There are additional steps required for front-end development. No staff developers use Windows, and you will need previous Docker experience on Windows to get a development environment working.

Staff developers are currently focused on tuning MDN for AWS and reducing existing technical debt. We aren't currently curating a list of good first bugs. We don't expect this to change before January 2018. We're not aware of other Mozilla projects that are in a better position for new contributors.

Here's how to contribute to Kuma:


Mentored Bugs

These bugs are good for your first contribution to MDN code. Each bug has a mentor assigned who can help you get started.

PatchWelcome Bugs

These bugs are good for more advanced contributions to MDN code that will make a big impact on the site. The bug may or may not have a mentor, and it may take more work than a simple mentored bug.
