Today marks effectively my first year at Mozilla! A year and a day ago I took my flight to San Francisco and then spent my first week in Mountain View, meeting most of my team mates. Since then, I’ve…
- been involved in 181 Mozilla bugs
- done 2151 “things” in github.
- gone to 17 events, of which I spoke or something similar in 7 of them
When I joined, I said I wasn’t sure what I’d be working on–it would be web related, and so far it’s been. I also said I would not be working in Firefox, and I still am not, but I’m getting closer: I’m lending a bit of my brain to Developer Tools, and I’ve also contributed to Firefox itself by reporting some interesting WebRTC and Web Audio bugs that I accidentally triggered building something else. I’m glad my crazy ideas end up contributing to the betterment of the product and the platform and we can all both enjoy the web and enjoy building for the web :-)
But it’s not all about “the productivity”. If you told me a year ago that I would end up meeting, working and even becoming friends with so many great people, I would have laughed in your face and tell you something like “go home, you’re drunk”. Seriously. It is pointless to try and list all of them here, but you know who you are, and I’m so glad I know you :-)
Finally, I’m seriously bad at “corporate theming”. So I don’t have any picture of myself with a Mozilla t-shirt, or a picture with a cute red panda to end up this post, not even a picture with a fluffy plush fire fox, so I’ll just leave you with this poser:
Walk into the club like…
