    3 Discover browser developer tools WIP This article will provide an overview of the various dev tools available in web browser. As it's an introductory article, it's only necessary to focus on the DOM explorer, CSS editor, and JS Console. As those tools are available one way or another in all browsers It's important to cover them in all browsers.

    Started by chrisdavidmills: I wanted to refer to a JS console intro section from my JavaScript basics article, so I thought "might as well just write this one!"

    How to contribute

    The learning area on MDN is brand new and offer a lot of opportunities for contribution from small tasks to large ones. Here's a list of all what you can do to help.

    Writing learning articles

    Expected time: A few hours

    This is the core of the Learning Area. Those article are self teaching material which details a given skills to learn. A learning article focus on a single topic to learn and follow a strict structure which include. Read "Write an article to help learn about the Web" to learn how to structure such an article.

    As an example, you can be inspired by the "Understanding URLs and their structure" article. See the Writing priorities section to know what is needed.

    Creating "Active learning" material

    Expected time: A few days

    A TextBook article always need to be linked to some Active Learning materials. Those are projects, exercises, interactive code samples or everything that allows the reader to interact with a topic details into a TextBook. Such learning material is as important as any TextBook.

    To create such Active Learning material, you are free to use any tools you wish. Nonetheless we strongly encourage you to use the WebMaker tools (especially Thimble) to do so as it provides various features very helpful for beginners and allows anyone to remix any content to learn from.

    Creating learning pathways

    Expected time: From a few hours to a few days

    We also call them "learning tutorials". A learning pathways, explain how to complete a task and will link to all the necessary TextBook articles. As it is a pathways, it will also tell in which order the various TextBook need to be read to be able to complete the task. This is the backbone of the Learning Area as it provides guidance on what to learn first to do something.

    Improve the glossary

    Expected time: From a few minutes to a few hours

    Our glossary is one of the key element for the Learning Area, see its dedicated doc status page for details on how to contribute.

    Handle tagging

    Expected time: From a few minutes to a few hours

    Tagging is very important on the Learning Area. We should not have pages without tags. At minimum, a page in the Learning Area should have two tags:

    Making editorial and technical review is also important. Remember that it's more important to be understood than to be technically perfect.

    Learning area meeting

    The Learning Area weekly meeting takes place in the #mdn channel on irc.mozilla.org at 10 AM PDT (17:00 UTC, 19:00 CET). See the meeting time in your time zone. It's open to anyone that would like to participate, so please feel free to join in!
