Fb Joins Open Net Docs as Lead Funder
Facebook is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring Open Web Docs as the main funder and member of the management committee. As a leading user and contributor to web-based technologies and browsers, Facebook understands the importance of quality documentation to the education and productivity of developers.
“Open Web Docs and Facebook will work together to ensure that developer documentation remains high quality, share content opportunities with other frameworks, and present an even wider range of browsers that conform to the technologies documented by MDN,” said Joel Marcey, ecosystem leader of Facebook’s open source developer advocacy team and member of the Open Web Docs Governing Committee.
“Well-maintained, free-to-use, manufacturer-independent documentation is essential for a robust and open web platform,” said Florian Scholz, Content Lead for Open Web Docs. “Open Web Docs is pleased to have Facebook support for this purpose.” ”
“We see the web, both 2D and immersive, as an important part of the overall XR user and developer experience. To better serve the XR ecosystem, we are strong advocates of high quality developer information targeting browsers on all XR devices. Open Web Docs is a perfect initiative to promote and showcase this type of underrepresented documentation, ”said Dave Hill, Oculus Engineering Manager.
The sponsorship from Facebook will help recruit full-time staff for technical writing of Open Web Docs and continue investment in the future of web platform documentation.
