Codemotion Berlin x Mozilla: Volunteering for an Open Web

Short thesis

The Internet is an integral part of modern life—a key component in education, communication, collaboration, business, entertainment and society as a whole. The Internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible. These are the first two principles of the Mozilla Manifesto and summarize the motivation behind this talk quite well. How can we contribute to protect the open web, the platform for our modern digital culture.


This talk gives an introduction into the Mozilla Community. How we are organized, structured and financed. What drives us and what we do.

Mozilla is well known for Firefox, but not so much for the community that drives us. We call ourselves Mozillians and contribute in various ways to Mozilla's Mission.

We are working to keep the internet healthy, open and accessible to all. To do so, we need help! Areas like web literacy, advocacy and participation but also a lot of innovative technologies are looking for new volunteers to get involved. We are building the future of the open web exploring technologies like servo, a next generation web rendering engine. At the same time we are organizing campaigns for a better European copyright reform.

Dive into the community world of Mozilla and join us protect the open web!
