SAM SIG: Mozilla Lessons Learned
The Monthly Meeting of the Software Architecture and Modeling SIG
Things we learned in the design and implementation of Mozilla, the biggest effort to put a commercial product into the open source world ever undertaken: our worst mistakes, most surprising successes, where we guessed right, and where we learned better. This presentation will focus on the technical decisions both large and small that turned out to be key turning points in the Mozilla's winding journey, but touch on politics as well. You can expect your questions to be met with candid and complete answers.
Scott Collins is an engineer, public speaker, technical evangelist, and one of the voices of the Open Source community. As a key participant and contributor to the Mozilla project since its inception, he first came into the public spotlight in PBS' documentary "Code Rush", chronicling Netscape's push to Open Source its pioneering browser.
Collins' technical depth and breadth, coupled with his skill at clearly communicating even the most challenging concepts, have made him a popular speaker around the globe on topics from the technical to the historical, social, and political ... often all in the same speech, illuminating the connections between.
