Joining the Firefox DevTools team was a dream come true for me. I shared why in the first episode of the Script & Style show but the quick summary is that I grew up loving Firefox (even before it was called “Firefox”) because Mozilla cared about developers via their early developer tools. If you told 18 year old David that he’d one day work at Mozilla and would eventually find his way to the Firefox DevTools team he wouldn’t have believed you. I’ve learned so much over the past eight months and I’ve accepted every challenge to continue learning more about Firefox, DevTools, and web technologies.
Two months ago I was approached about taking on the task of removing the old debugger from Firefox.
