Community Coordinator, Mozilla Foundation
Asa Dotzler is the community coordinator for several Mozilla projects. He is the founder and coordinator of Mozillas Quality Assurance (QA) and Testing Program, which has grown from just a few contributors when Asa joined the project to tens of thousands of volunteers today. As the Quality Assurance lead, Asa works with Mozillas volunteer QA and testing community to ensure excellence and to certify applications for release.
Asa is also co-founder and community coordinator for the Spread Firefox project, launched in October 2004, where he spearheads open-source marketing projects. Spread Firefox is charged with empowering Firefox community members to raise awareness of the popular Web browser.
When he's not helping new QA and marketing contributors, he's working with email@example.com, the project management group at Mozilla, to define requirements and development roadmaps for the Mozilla projects.
Asa has been an active member of the Mozilla community since 1999. After volunteering for more than a year, Asa joined the Mozilla organization and has played a key role in delivering products including the release of Mozilla 1.0 and the release of the award-winning Mozilla Firefox Web browser and Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail client now used by more than 60 million people combined worldwide.
