Mozilla podala žalobu na FBI, chce informace o zranitelnosti Tor Browseru
Deep in IT
Mozilla v tuto chvíli nemůže vyloučit, že použitá chyba v Tor Browseru není součástí Torovského kusu prohlížeče, ale samotného Firefox jádra. Věc tak může mít dopad i na Firefox samotný a vláda by neměla tajit informace o prolomitelném zabezpečení.

Karl Dubost: Working AS a distributed team. No more remote workers

Mozilla planet - wo, 18/05/2016 - 08:09

When you say remoter workers, you already failed your intents of having an effective team. Companies setting up "friendly remote work environment" are most of the time failing at understanding the nature of the issues. The best way you can set up a distributed team is by forgetting about the workers and focusing on the work itself.

I'm working at Mozilla in the Web Compatibility Activity. I'm part of a now 4 persons team (Mozilla staff) and a couple of active contributors. For the Mozilla staff part:

  • Mike Taylor in Texas, USA
  • Hallvord Steen in Norway
  • Adam Stevenson in Ontario, Canada
  • Karl Dubost (myself) in Kanagawa, Japan
  • We have contributors in India, Japan, France, Romania, Brazil, Mexico, etc.

We are working together.

The most important part of creating a successful distributed team is when you stop thinking that there are remote workers in your team. You need to consider that the work can be done from anywhere by anyone competent for the job. This will give a good base for organizing the work in terms of process, protocols and tools to be productive and effective. That's the key, the only one.

Some tips:

  1. Choose open first: Opening a private discussion is a lot harder, than making a private comment on a discussion.
  2. Record Action Items: Have action items which are identifiable by all the team members you are working with (and broader when possible. See 1.). These items need an owner, an unambiguous actionable task, a target or context and a deadline.
  3. Record any meetings: When there is a meeting, write down detailed minutes on the spot. Give these minutes a unique and stable URI. The context might be useful for another team or a new employee later on.
  4. Share your work assets with others: Anything you produce, code, documents, etc. Give access to it. Share it as early as possible with again stable and public URIs.
  5. Share your worklog: This helps others to decide if they can request more things from you. This will help them to decide if they can make progress on their own job.
  6. Web Archived Mailing-Lists: Set your mailing-list archives in a way that makes it accessible to everyone (to the world if possible, to the entire company, and in some very rare contexts to only your team)

There are many others small tips to make this more effective, but these will go a long way in achieving your goals.

The amazing benefits of working that way is that it doesn't allow only for a distributed team, it makes the whole organization more robust by having a solid information flow management.

PS: I have been working in a distributed way at W3C, Opera and now Mozilla for the last 15 years. In my work history, I still consider the W3C (2000-2008) the best place for distributed work among staff. I don't know about W3C today.

Otsukare!

Maja Frydrychowicz: A Week of Reflection and Programming for Fun

Mozilla planet - wo, 18/05/2016 - 06:00

I recently got to spend a week back at the heart of an excellent delightful inspiring technical community: Recurse Center or RC. This friendly group consists mostly of programmers from around the world who have, at some point, participated in RC’s three-month “retreat” in New York City to work on whatever projects happen to interest them. The retreat’s motto is “never graduate”, and so participants continue to support each other’s technical growth and curiosity forever and ever.

I’m an RC alum from 2014! RC’s retreat is how I ended up contributing to open source software and eventually gathering the courage to join Mozilla. Before RC, despite already having thousands of hours of programming and fancy math under my belt, I held myself back with doubts about whether I’m a “real programmer”, whatever that stereotype means. That subconscious negativity hasn’t magically disappeared, but I’ve had a lot of good experiences in the past few years to help me manage it. Today, RC helps me stay excited about learning all the things for the sake of learning all the things.

A retreat at RC looks something like this: you put your life more-or-less on hold, move to NYC, and spend three months tinkering in a big, open office with around fifty fellow (thoughtful, kind, enthusiastic) programmers. During my 2014 retreat, I worked mostly on lowish-level networking things in Python, pair programmed on whatever else people happened to be working on, gave and received code review, chatted with wise “residents”, attended spontaneous workshops, presentations and so on.

Every May, alumni are invited to return to the RC space for a week, and this year I got to go! (Thanks, Mozilla!) It was awesome! Exclamation points! This past week felt like a tiny version of the 3-month retreat. After two years away, I felt right at home — that says a lot about the warm atmosphere RC manages to cultivate. My personal goal for the week was just to work in a language that’s relatively new to me - JavaScript - but I also happened to have really interesting conversations about things like:

  • How to implement a basic debugger?
  • How to improve the technical interview process?
  • What holds developers back or slows them down? What unnecessary assumptions do we have about our tools and their limitations?

RC’s retreat is a great environment for growing as a developer, but I don’t want to make it sound like it’s all effortless whimsy. Both the hardest and most wonderful part of RC (and many other groups) is being surrounded by extremely impressive, positive people who never seem to struggle with anything. It’s easy to slip into showing off our knowledge or to get distracted by measuring ourselves against our peers. Sometimes this is impostor syndrome. Sometimes it’s the myth of the 10x developer. RC puts a lot of effort into being a safe space where you can reveal your ignorance and ask questions, but insecurity can always be a challenge.

Similarly, the main benefit of RC is learning from your peers, but the usual ways of doing this seem to be geared toward people who are outgoing and think out loud. These are valuable skills, but when we focus on them exclusively we don’t hear from people who have different defaults. There is also little structure provided by RC so you are free to self-organize and exchange ideas as you deem appropriate. The risk is that quiet people are allowed to hide in their quiet corners, and then everyone misses out on their contributions. I think RC makes efforts to balance this out, but the overall lack of structure means you really have to take charge of how you learn from others. I’m definitely better at this than I used to be.

RC is an experiment and it’s always changing. Although at this point my involvement is mostly passive, I’m glad to be a part of it. I love that I’ve been able to work closely with vastly different people, getting an inside look at their work habits and ways of thinking. Now, long after my “never-graduation”, the RC community continues to expose me to a variety of ideas about technology and learning in a way that makes us all get better. Continuous improvement, yeah!

Armen Zambrano: Schedule a Linux64 TaskCluster task from the command line

Mozilla planet - di, 17/05/2016 - 22:57
I've created an experimental repository to play with TaskCluster scheduling using your personal temporary credentials.

If you want to try to schedule a real task from the command line feel free to give it a try:
https://github.com/armenzg/TC_developer_scheduling_experiments


Here's the output of scheduling a Linux64 debug task.
NOTE: It will not post to Treeherder
NOTE: It will open a new tab asking you to grant access to your TaskCluster temp credentials.
