Mozilla Weekend London is undergoing rapid planning, aimed at mid-July. Registration forms, for interested people, have been sent out, but the question has been risen, what is a Mozilla Weekend?
The words Mozilla Weekend mean exactly how they sound. A weekend of Mozilla. There are no limits to the usage of the term, but rather guidelines on principles they should follow, and that the event should not be limited to a single area of Mozilla.
Mozilla Weekend is a framework and toolkit for planning and running events. We noticed that although there are lots of resources out there explaining how to run an event, there are not many resources to be used during the planning and execution, only explanations on how to run the event. That’s what this project, ultimately, wants to change.
The branding, however, is completely optional. We don’t mind if you use our toolkit and framework (which are under development), at all, even without using the branding.
and Mozilla Weekend London?
Mozilla Weekend London is community engagement and building event. We don’t have any focus on growing our community with this event. Instead, we want to build the people in the UK into a much stronger, thus powerful group.
We’ll be fitting in talks from Mozillians from different areas, explaining their roles and viewpoints on Mozilla right now, these talks having a strong emphasis on how we can form a better and stronger community.
Firefox (OS) Workshops, webmaker mini-jams, and groups discussions will all be prominent features. We want to truly create bonding between people in our community, so creating smaller groups where people can truly hear the voice of one-another is important to us.
Besides that, there will be a lot of social time. Pizza, coke, and conversation is all on the agenda.
Wait, I’m confused?
