Get Involved: developer.mozilla.org (MDN)
The Mozilla Developer Network is our technical resource for developers - including documentation and demo's for Mozilla and open web technologies.
Note: As of May 2017, we've moved to Docker for development, and are working on using it for deployment as well. It 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 a Dockerized production environment, and reducing existing technical debt. We aren't currently curating a list of good first bugs. Some other projects that are in a better position for new developer volunteers:
Here's how to contribute to Kuma:
- Fork us on Github
- Read our contribution guidelines
- Install locally
- Check out the mentored bugs or contact a developer below
- IRC: #mdndev
These bugs are good for your first contribution to MDN code. Each bug has a mentor assigned who can help you get started.

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.
