IRLSVNBrian King - Token Slovenian Irishman
brian

Brian has been hacking on Mozilla and related projects since early 1999. It began with a European funded project called Fabula to create software for children with the aim of teaching minority languages like Basque, Catalan, Frisian, Irish and Welsh. This was built using Mozilla. Interest bloomed and he started contributing to the Mozilla Editor, and exploring the rest of the vast body of code. He moved on to work at ActiveState where he was heavily involved in the Komodo project, a scripting language IDE that uses the Mozilla application framework.

Previously, Brian spent his time as a C++ applications developer, interspersed with some Perl development and XML consultancy. His technical interests include observing and participating in the re-shaping of the web environment brought about by XML. Other languages he codes in are PHP, Python, and JavaScript.

Brian has written a number of articles about Mozilla and co-authored the O’Reilly title ‘Creating Applications with Mozilla’.

Brian is currently COO and Senior Developer at Mozdev Group Inc., a Mozilla technologies services company.
