📔 Note

I had al­ways de­sired a con­tri­bu­tion to the MDN doc­u­men­ta­tion. It is a fan­tas­tic re­source that has helped me im­mensely through the years.

The idea that some­thing I con­tribute can ben­e­fit hun­dreds or thou­sands of de­vel­op­ers in mak­ing bet­ter in­formed de­ci­sions gives me so much joy.

This fi­nally came true to­day with a small im­ple­men­ta­tion note around how Firefox for Android cur­rently doesn't han­dle a datalist due to a re­gres­sion in­tro­duced in v79.

My ex­pe­ri­ence was very pleas­ant and rather quick. I would love to do this again! 😊

@celia Earlier this year I was in­ter­viewed by two devs from Mozilla and Google: they were work­ing to­gether, in­ter­view­ing de­vel­op­ers in or­der to bet­ter un­der­stand their ex­pe­ri­ences about front-end dev. in a cross-browser con­text.

They were re­ally nice peo­ple, and the in­ter­view was lead in a way they could get the best pos­si­ble out­come in a 1 hour ses­sion. I’ve re­ally en­joyed this mo­ment.

Contributing to this kind of stuff is a re­ward in it­self.

Good job! I learned about a `datalist` is­sue. :D
