At the Mothership of Demo Parties – Assembly (pt1)

Mozilla Labs Demoparty is an initiative to foster artful exploration of open web technologies.

Final Mozilla Labs Demo Party in 2011

This past weekend marked the final event of our Mozilla Labs Demoparty 2011 – A collaboration with the giant Assembly Party in Helsinki, an arena filled with thousands of demo sceners and gamers.

Within 3 months a community of enthusiasts has put together 7 web demoparty events with us. *Applause* In this first Assembly wrap-up post we bring you a ton of material starring our very own Rob Hawkes.
