David Ross


I am originally from Australia, now living in London, and building an Open Source fitness platform. With a strong history in customer service, flagship retail management, staff training, and self-driven tech expertise. Reliant on open source projects (an everyday Linux user for almost a decade) I firmly recognize the importance of giving back to open source in anyway I can. Taking in many aspects of:

  • community building
  • diversity & inclusion
  • event support & management
  • supporting workshops
  • web technologies
  • documentation
  • and most recently developing knowledge in Rust

A regular contributor to Mozfest since 2014. Proofs of my commitment to Mozilla:

  • Mozilla's Network 50 awardee
  • A-Frame workshops
  • London Privacy Lab
  • MDN contributor
  • Global Sprint (London sitehost 2018)
  • Open Leaders (Round 2 participant and mentor in rounds 4/5)
  • Organiser of monthly MozCoffee London events
  • UK Community management
    • Weekly UK Community calls
    • Leader in Mozilla's Discourse
    • Editor of the UK Community Calendar
  • MozFest Space Wrangler (2017 & 2018)

I've recently applied for the 2018/19 Tech Speakers program. I have my fingers and toes crossed as this would mean the world to me, if I were to be accepted.
