Over the long weekend, a number of people asked me if the Firefox OS Tablet Contribution Program was open to anyone besides programmers. The answer is a resounding “YES!”
We’re setting out to build the next Firefox OS experience together.
Mozilla has limited full-time resources to dedicate to tablet-specific Firefox OS development. That will hopefully change in the future but for the time being that means we need all kinds of help.
This isn’t an exhaustive list, but I wanted to put it out there to let you know that, yes, we want YOU! to come work with us to make Firefox OS kick ass on the tablet form factor.
We’re looking for people who can help us test Firefox OS regularly and report defects, chart feature gaps with competitor tablets, triage incoming bug reports, localize and translate UI, prioritize work and build roadmaps, hack on existing features, define new features and experiences, and more.
If that sounds exciting to you, stay tuned for instructions on applying to receive hardware and participate in the Tablet Contribution Program. Get a head start on the process and make sure you’ve got a Bugzilla account and a Mozillians account.
