The AMA Computer University main campus in Quezon City invited Mozilla Philippines at their “WEB & IT SUMMIT 2010: IO Your Info World Wide” The WEB & IT SUMMIT was an event that started last year (2009) by WebGeek Ph together with AMA IT Society of AMA Computer University during the AMA Foundation Week. Now on its second year, Mozilla Philippines is so glad to be part of the event. Our talk was attended by a hundred college students in a small room.
We started by showing a short movie clip of 5 years of Mozilla Firefox and discussed how it resurrected the web in the early browser war of the 90’s. Then the reasons why they should choose Firefox being a open source project with all its goodness like security, speed and customizations. We give away some Mozilla goodies like button pins and T-shirt as prizes for the participants. I got to be in charge documenting our talk so you can find other photos in my flickr account. One of our mission is to promote the Tagalog version of Firefox. A big emphasis is cited on encouraging everyone to participate in the Firefox localization efforts in the Philippines. Ending the event with our recruitment for the local community here in the Philippines through our website Mozilla Philippines.
In behalf of the Mozilla Philippines community, me and Ren Ren Gabas is thankful to the organizers for having us in the event. We’re looking forward to establish Mozilla Student Reps in AMA University with the help of WEB & IT SUMMIT. In our own small contributions may we find fulfillment for a better web experience.
