Dietrich Ayala

Dietrich Ayala is a developer advocate at Mozilla, the non-profit makers of the Firefox web browser, where he's been working for internet freedom and shipping open source software to hundreds of millions of people for over a decade. He writes and speaks about browsers, the web and open technologies and is currently working out the way forward for building distributed and decentralized applications with the web. Dietrich's first technology job was at the indie music label Sub Pop Records, doing everything and anything, and has since worked everywhere from small startups to household-name mega-corporations like Yahoo and McAfee. Before computerizing, he was a chef and barista. Dietrich lives in Portland (Oregon) most of the time but spends a year in Asia every now and then because that's where the internet is growing the most and where all our devices come from. And the noodle soup is good.
