Mozilla Malaysia at Mozilla Summit 2013

On 4th to 6th October, thousands of Mozillians from all over the world joined Mozilla Summit which simultaneously took place in three cities, Brussels (Belgium), Santa Clara (California, USA) and Toronto (Ontario, Canada). It was an exciting opportunity for key volunteers and Mozilla employees to gather together and work face to face.

The Summit started with a keynote presentation from Chief Lizard Wrangler, Mitchell Baker. The speech put emphasis on the web that should be knowable (know more), interoperable (do more), and be ours (do better).

We met a lot of Mozillians from diverse cultures. The World Fair provided a good chance to interact with communities that has common interest towards open Web, from all over the globe. Plus, it’s the time for unique Mozilla swags exchange and collection!

They are all open source and ready for contributors and bug reports. Explore them and be blown away!

There’s a number of supporting sessions and open sessions that ran simultaneously throughout the event. Some of the sessions that we participated were learning and teaching the Webmaker, discussion on growing to a million of Mozillians, and Open Badges hacking session.

Besides of all these geeky agendas, there were also social events that took place. After all, it is one of the Summit’s objectives; to socialize among Mozillians that were only brought into virtual contact via IRC, etc.

Since the Summit location was in the state of California, we took a chance to visit Mozilla Space and Mozilla HQ. Now this has made us to feel more electrified to be a Mozillian!
