The first Mozilla South Asia Inter-Community meet-up will take place in Kathmandu, Nepal, on 23-24 February 2013, with the coordination from Mozilla Nepal Regional community. It will bring together community leaders from the South Asia, including paid staff from across the SAARC countries, to meet for 3 days of presentations, breakout sessions and discussions to plan the implementation of the Mozilla South Asia community road map for 2013 and ensure that the regional community is fully aligned with greater engagement efforts across the Mozilla organization.
The aim of the workshop is to enable Mozilla communities in the South Asia region to share and learn from each other’s experience working on the Mozilla Project, improve collaboration in the future, and work on specific tasks. The event will be focused on operations & roadmap planning for each existing local communities of the South Asia.
In preparation for my participation at MozCamp EU 2012, I’m working hard to promote two Engagement programs we’re launching. One is the Tiger Team project (which I’m working with Chelsea Novak on) where we are gathering quickly implementable and test-able ideas to support the promotion of Firefox desktop. The other is a program that we’re launching soon to enable Mozilla communities to come up with ideas to promote Firefox for Android (Fennec) which we would help fund and the communities would implement. Both of these are outlined in my Mission MozCamp page. I look forward to finding out who my buddy will be

In November, Mozilla’s Contributor Engagement team (the team I am on) worked hard to produce two MozCamp events on back-to-back weekends in Germany and Malaysia. Between MozCamp EU (Berlin) and MozCamp Asia (Kuala Lumpur), we gathered over 450 core contributors of the Mozilla project and shared lots of important information about the project, our goals, our challenges and what we’re planning for 2012.
Heros of MozCamp 2011
I want to take a moment to thank everyone who was involved in making our MozCamps in Berlin and KL successful. Specifically, I’d like to thank: Havi Hoffman, Laura Forrest, Dave Berz, Zandr Milewski, Shyam Mani, Paul Rouget, Greg Jost, Lee Tom, Sean Martell, Atul Varma, Spencer Hui, Team Baked Goods and all participants & speakers for making the events as memorable as they were for everyone who participated.
Please enjoy a short video covering both MozCamp events.
The event is a specialized, exclusive session for local Open Sourcers – bloggers, coders, and designers who share the Open Source ethic – to attend before Bar Camp. This session is a unique opportunity to learn about the relationship between Open Source and civil society issues, such as: protecting the Open Web from Internet censorship, the benefits of continuing to develop “indigenous” (Khmer) Open Source tools, and using web-based Open Source security tactics to improve data collection for both the public and private sector. This event is a special, exclusive opportunity to spend two days with these American experts leading into late October’s Barcamp meeting.
