After the launch of the new Mozilla Firefox, it’s a good time to be a bigger part of the Mozilla universe.
Mozilla recently launched the Mozilla Reps program, a program designed to make it easy for passionate Mozillians, all over the world, to organize/attend Mozilla events and activities, to document and share your these activities with the broader community and of course, to inspire new contributors to join the project.
- request sponsorship and cool swag for local events
- educate yourself on ways to represent Mozilla on your region
- make your events discoverable through your personal member page and a dynamic Mozilla Rep events calendar
- find and collaborate with other Mozilla Reps nearby
- meet and work more closely with Mozilla teams across the entire project
- Step 1: Fill out and submit the MozillaReps application form. A member of the Mozilla Reps advisory council will be in touch within 24 hours.
- Step 2: If your application is approved, you’ll be invited to be interviewed by a member of the advisory council over IRC or IM that same week. The interview lasts about 15 minutes and you will be asked some simple questions about yourself, your experience contributing to the Mozilla project and, of course, your motivation for becoming a Mozilla Rep.
- Step 3: If you are accepted after the interview, your Mozilla Rep mentor who will get you started and get you familiar with the tools at your disposal to start organizing events, requesting budgets, swag, etc.
In the Philippines, this would be a great way to continue the great starts of new communities, such as Cagayan De Oro, Cebu, and Bukidnon. The Mozilla Reps program means that anyone can now officially have Mozilla events in their local community.
