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 July 2016, we are starting the long process of switching from a Vagrant / Virtualbox development environment to a Docker development and deployment environment. There are many issues and bad experiences with the Vagrant environment, and, since it will soon be retired, those will probably not be fixed. During this transition, which may take the rest of 2016, it will be more difficult than we'd like to contribute code to MDN.
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.
