Computer engineering students of Pamantasan Ng Cabuyao got their own piece of Mozilla awesomeness yesterday. Yup, it’s our second roadshow in just two weeks and we still feel we’re all getting started.
Jun opened his keynote by introducing Mozilla and the worldwide community of open source users and developers, different Firefox release channels, local community subgroups (Engagement, Localization and Development), his favorite add-ons and the new development tools that made the crowd says “Ooohhhhh!” and more. Crazy stuffs! Really. The development team showcased a number of innovations and new browser features that are very useful for coding and debugging. Other young Mozillians shared their talents and experiences on web development, technopreneurship and community involvement. I did a short talk as well about trending IT jobs and how Free Software experience can help the students beef up their resumes and get ready for real world.
To add more to the fun, the team gave away plenty of raffle prizes including two domain hosting care of Turf Site Manila. Thank you very much Bob Reyes!
I saw how enthusiastic the students the students were like those in PUP Santa Rosa. They were very eager to ask questions and learn more about Mozilla and how it can help their career as IT professionals. I’m personally looking forward to see these people succeed. And like everyone in the team is, I’m very much willing to help make it happen.
Soon we will have an army of passionate, creative and open-minded Filipino Mozillians. I’m pretty sure this is going to be awesome!
