The MDN spring tour continues with a trip into autumn in the Conosur – the southernmost region of South America. We’re heading south to participate in MozCamp, a gathering of the Mozilla Hispano community, and to meet web developers in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Montevideo, Uruguay; São Paulo, Brazil; and Santiago, Chile. We’ll introduce some exciting new Mozilla projects like Boot-to-Gecko (B2G), Apps, Persona, and WebFWD and show some of our work on developer tools, Firefox, and the Add-ons SDK. We’d like to spend time hacking with web developers and sharing Mozilla’s vision of the open, user-centric Web.
Our message: The Web is the platform and it’s built from open technologies. Learn how you can collaborate with MDN on browser-agnostic documentation for the Web as a whole, or contribute to the Mozilla mission and Open Source initiatives through coding and evangelism. There many, many ways to get involved.
If you’re a developer, designer, documentation writer, technologist, entrepreneur, or open source enthusiast in Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Sao Paolo, or Santiago, you’re invited to sign up, stop by and share what you’re working on. If you’re just curious to meet Mozillians or want to learn more about our work, we’d love to meet you. Never forget the Web is made de todos, para todos.
Tuesday, April 24: We kick off our whirlwind tour of 3 Southern cities in 5 days, with a developer evening in Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo. We are grateful for the kind hospitality of the folks at La Diaria, an innovative daily newspaper with a strong web presence and a wonderful venue that’s popular with Uruguay’s tech and business community. Also a big thanks to the crew at Cuboxlabs, a forward-looking software development shop, who are “Available for Awesomeness,” and have definitely been awesome and available in guiding us Norteamericanos in how to set up an developer evening from far-off Mountain View, more than 10 thousand kms away. Joining the MDN crew to speak in Montevideo: Dan Mills (@thunder), product lead for Persona; Shane Caraveo (@mixedpuppy) from Mozilla Labs; and Andres L. Martinez from BlueVia (@davilagrau), an MDN Hack Day Tour sponsor in Montevideo and Santiago, as well as Buenos Aires. Vamanos!
