Upholding the Open Web with PaaS: An Interview with Mozilla’s Chris Turra
by Isabelle Groc

Just a few blocks away from ActiveState’s office in downtown Vancouver, Mozilla web operations engineer Chris Turra is working hard to fulfill his organization’s mission to keep the web open. Working with his California-based colleague Brandon Burton, Turra is implementing Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technology at Mozilla to help his (now-teenage) organization deploy web applications at scale.

Born and raised in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, Turra is passionate about technology and coffee. He packs his own beans when he travels, and he is an expert when it comes to the nuances of espresso-making. Today he spills the beans about the Mozilla PaaS flavour and talks about the ingredients for achieving success with a PaaS.
