Privacy by Design

UA2.114 (Baudoux)
Trishul Goel
Most of the websites leak out the user data, and most of the times (~90%) it is not known to the site admins. These leakage happen via tag managers, third party CDNs, embeds, fonts etc. In this talk I would like to discuss the opportunities for developers to avoid these while developing websites. This talk will help them to ensure their websites does exactly what they intend their website to do. The side-effect of this always is better performance ?

Every other website on the internet uses third party trackers to improve their product and provide better user experience, which eventually leads to a compromise in user privacy. As developers, we are responsible for making our users feel safe and do whatever it takes to secure the privacy of our users. In this talk we will discuss the data leaks which happen while using third party trackers and will walk through the measures we can take to avoid them and ensure the privacy of our users, right from the time of development.

We take a look at Thunderbird's roadmap for the future with Ryan Sipes, Thunderbird's Community and Business Development Manager, and break down what the project has planned for 2020 and beyond. Despite some of the Internet saying that Thunderbird was on its deathbed a few years ago, the team has been able to put together a lot of resources and developers to create a better Email client for the world. And we have bigger plans for the coming years.

The web is pretty much present in everyone's life nowdays. But is it really for all? How are we making it a smooth usage for those with disabilities, for those with reduce time and internet connection? Or even more further, for those that just use the web for the first time? Let's learn a bit how the devtools from Firefox can help us improve everyone's experience without much of a sacrifice on our end.

Using a profiling tool help developers to get detailed information about the execution of their application and allow them to understand the behavior of it. The Firefox Profiler is a profiler that is built into Firefox. It has tighter integration with Firefox than external profilers. It can provide more information and insight into what the browser is doing. It can also show the memory usage and Firefox internal code execution. During the talk, I will be explaining, how to capture a good profile ...

In 2019, Mozilla's Open Innovation and WebCompat team joined forces to improve the process of gathering web compatibility issues. One of the experiments was to introduce machine learning capabilities in the triaging process and automate some steps. This talk is about the early steps and how we got some hands on experience with machine learning, what we've achieved so far and potential next steps.
