Chris Hofmann will give an overview of Mozilla's efforts to create the next generation of the Web. He will provide a look at Mozilla's activities in the mobile space, as well as Labs projects that are pushing the Web forward. Last, Hofmann will discuss the innovation taking place in the browser itself and how the community can get involved in these exciting efforts.
As director of engineering and Special Projects at the Mozilla Foundation and Corporation, Chris Hofmann has spearheaded the research and development work of thousands of open source contributors around the world and has contributed to every Netscape and Mozilla browser release since 1996. As the first employee at the Mozilla Foundation in August 2003, Chris led a small team of top engineers to establish the foundation as an independent and self-sustaining organization. In 2004, Chris managed and executed the first worldwide release of Mozilla Firefox 1.0. The Firefox release helped to fulfill the Mozilla Foundation’s goal of supporting open Web standards, provide innovation and choice for Internet software, and its broad acceptance in the marketplace has set Firefox on a path to remarkable marketshare growth. Chris now develops partnerships with companies that test, develop and distribute Mozilla technology in a variety of ways. He also helps to build out Mozilla communities around the world that are involved with localization of Firefox in to over 40 languages, and provide support to Firefox users. He engages with security researchers to help improve browser security, and works on a variety of mobile initiatives using the Mozilla technology.
