Create a promo for the What Can I Do For Mozilla? tool
The Coding Stewards would like to promote a tool that will help people interested in getting involved with coding find a project that's a good fit for them. The tool is at http://whatcanidoformozilla.org/ We could promote this in locations where potential coding volunteers will be looking for information. For example, this page on MDN has a lot of relevant information but it's not really clear what people can do next on the page. https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Introduction Or on non-Mozilla developer sites such as stackoverflow.com. CC'ing sheppy for his input on the feasibility of adding promos to MDN pages and CC'ing Matej for thoughts on copy.
I think this could be pretty simple and straightforward, like "What can you do for Mozilla? Find out at..." but it would help to know if there any size, length or other restrictions. What space would this fill and how would it look?

Sheppy, do you have any thoughts on how promos work on MDN or examples of existing promos? Just surfing around the site, it looks like this page has what you could call a promo for HTML5 Demos. https://developer.mozilla.org/en/HTML
Hi there! Sorry I'm a little confused, how is this page related to the current get involved page? and is the intention to create an entirely new landing page or to skin the current concept? I'm just trying to better understand the use case and where this would love, and how it relates to existing pages. Also, what type of timing and priority levels are we looking at here? Thanks.
This is a separate page from the Get Involved one; it is more focused, it doesn't live on Mozilla servers, and the end goal is different (Get Involved ends in an email, whereas whatcanido ends in at least one link to a project page). I'm looking for logical places where we can feature links to whatcanido, such as on MDN where people people have some coding ability that might be relevant to one of the projects whatcanido links to.
To add to what Josh said, the What Can I Do For Mozilla? site is to help people who are interested in coding contribution opportunities. The Get Involved page is the first stop for information for all potential contribution opportunities and then from there we direct people to more specific information related to particular functional areas. So these two are related with What Can I Do For Mozilla? coming further along the contribution paths for technical contributors. More about contribution paths are at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Contribute/Conversion_points And for timing and priority, we don't have a specific deadline in mind and this isn't a top priority.
handing this to Lee for now, though I'd say it's lower priority against some of the other things on his plate right now. Lee, ping me if you need to discuss!

I just saw a promo on the main Web page on MDN that could be something we could reuse for a What Can I Do For Mozilla promo on Firefox developer pages. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/web
Question on timing here: are we targeting a particular due date for this?
No specific due date.
