Mozilla Philippines is kicking off the new year with a mixture of campus tours and Firefox OS App Days this January. The first of these events will be on January 12 at the Pamantasan Ng Cabuyao (PNC) in Laguna with over 450 expected participants from the school’s college of engineering studies. PNC Student Reps have been very busy organizing their biggest Mozilla-sponsored event yet. Webmaker, Firefox for Android and Firefox OS are the main topics plus another surprise activity!
Another campus tour will be held down south in the city of Isabela, this time on January 22 and 23 in two big schools namely Claret College of Isabela and Basilan State College with a combined participants of 350 students. This is going to be a very good opportunity to recruit more Firefox Chavacano translators and volunteers.
Wrapping up the first month of awesomeness is the Firefox OS App Day which will be held on January 26 at Makati City, Metro Manila. This is one in a series of events in over 20 countries around the world which will educate and inspire developers to work on apps and create opportunities for local developers to showcase their apps. Tickets have been sold out just 10 days after opening online. That is crazy awesome excitement!
So as we set the pace for 2013, we would like more people like you to get involved. Join us in promoting the Open Web by participating in our future activities and by signing up on our community mailing list.
Here’s to a more web-loving, web-making, openness-promoting and opportunity-creating year!
