Coding with EFF

EFF needs a few good volunteers. With many important technology projects in the works and a limited amount of staff and time, we are always looking for volunteers with the skills to help us support the open source projects that we run.

If you are a designer, programmer, security auditor, QA person, or have other skills to contribute, we are happy to have your help. Some ways you can help include: improving design, improving usability, fixing bugs, reporting bugs, finding security issues, fixing security issues, writing tests, adding new features, translating interfaces or helping with whatever needs to get done.

Additionally, we offer rewards to people who discover security vulnerabilities in a subset of the software below. For more information (including instructions on how to notify us of security vulnerabilities), see our Security Vulnerability Disclosure Program.

EFF's technology development and research projects aim to defend the rights of free expression, and enhance security and privacy on the Internet. All of our work is released under free and open source licenses such as the GNU General Public License or Creative Commons licenses. Listed below are the open source projects we are currently working on, and ways you can help support them.

The NSA is stopping "about" searching. That's a victory for privacy protections, but it's just the beginning. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks...
