What I am working on
Re-designing and re-implementing the Firefox add-on Lightbeam as a WebExtension.
((What follows is a draft blog post for Mozilla’s Hacks blog. I plan to write about the ‘back-end’ of the browser extension, while the other intern on this project, Princiya Sequeira, plans to write about the ‘front-end’, since those are the areas we worked the most on during our internship.))

What I learned while attending SOUPS
This week, I went to the thirteenth annual Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS).
My Experience at Mozilla’s All Hands in San Francisco
This week, I, along with hundreds of fellow Mozillians, converged on San Francisco for a bi-annual, week-long event: Mozilla’s All Hands.
There were meetings, mixers and open houses throughout the week as well as ample opportunity to simply hack away alongside my international teammates, who hail from Australia, England and Germany. It was wonderful to meet them all in person.
Here are some highlights from the week:
TIL: There is a strong sticker-making and sticker-sharing culture at Mozilla!
I was gifted a number of awesome stickers for different Mozilla Firefox projects, many of which now adorn my work computer (special shout out to @jhoffman)!
I got Issues!
Merged PR#67: Initial D3 visualization
After much experimentation and prototyping, I got a force graph to display actual data from storage on page load.

What I learned in my first two weeks as a web development intern at Mozilla.
First-time blogger, long-time reader of blogs! I know there are many options out there, and eventually, I’ll probably distill the contents of this page and put it on my professional website. For now though, GitHub Pages seems like the best choice for this blog, since:
- I already have a GitHub account,
- the project is hosted on GitHub,
- there are style templates,
- and Markdown syntax makes presenting content really easy–even code!
