»Janitor - From working on Firefox to bootstrapping development environments«
2019-08-22, 14:45–14:50, Meitner

A platform to bootstrap development environments to work on big open-source projects such as Firefox, Chromium... and the list is growing !

Years ago with a friend, we realized working on well-known open-source projects such as Firefox is harder than it seems : you need to clone repositories (which can take a lot of time on a slow connection), set up dependencies and toolchains, compile for the first time, install optional tools to help you on your workflow... We made https://janitor.technology to help newcomers and developers experiment, hack, work, submit patches to these projects and not worry about this stuff !
