We are very happy to announce Brian King from the Mozilla Foundation as one of the keynote speakers.
Brian has been involved with Mozilla since 1999. Back then he was primarily involved as a developer. A company he worked for was one of the first 3rd parties to use the Mozilla code to write software, in this case a firm in Dublin writing children’s software. Afterwards Brian got involved with mozdev.org and helped build up a developer ecosystem around Mozilla software and products, e.g. Add-ons.
Later on, he started doing consulting around these topics, eventually setting up his own firm Briks in 2006. As a mozillian, Brian is currently a Mozilla Reps Mentor, Community Builder, Add-ons Reviewer, and Evangelist. His work is focused on managing the European Mozilla Community as Contributor Engagement Manager. Mozilla contributors are volunteers who use their time and skills to impact Mozilla’s key initiatives and influence the overall health of the Web. They help provide massive scale and create the Internet the world needs through participation in our functional areas, local participation and programs like Mozilla Reps.
Contributor Engagement is part of Community Engagement (other audiences are users and supporters) and is focused on growing and rallying this contributor base, building relationships with potential contributors and connecting them with volunteer opportunities.
Basically, Brian helps you help Mozilla.
