Mozila FireFox workshop on 14-15 September 2011 at Sunway Hotel

Hello everybody, I got information's workshop about the Mozilla Firefox Open Source from my friend that he has sent me by email. Here is his information please read and join all together.

The Mozilla Firefox Open Source Conference will be two days: Wednesday
14-Thursday 15 September 2011. I look forward to your nominations both
for assistants and participants for the conference. I will need about
eight Assistants, who are expected to be group facilitators and who
will make more of a time commitment but will also receive extra access
and benefits.

Purpose of the workshop

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. Bar Camp has an increasingly
business-oriented approach, which is great, but 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 both for human
rights groups, and in the business community. Bar Camp, which is in
late October, will not have access to the Mozilla Firefox experts.
This event is a special, exclusive opportunity to spend two days with
these American experts.

What are they going to gain?

Better positioning for jobs. Participants will receive a
certification for participating in the workshop, highlighting their
new knowledge in Open Source Development, and awarded by Mozilla.
Their new knowledge of these tools, and the very latest developments
is key to their position in a competitive job market – they will have
an advantage over those attending Bar Camp.

International networking. Participants will be able to network with
key players from Mozilla Firefox from Silicon Valley, as well as from
the Technology and Social Change Group (TASCHA) in Seattle – the two
most important places in the work for IT professionals. They will
also be able to network with each other, and with representatives from
the local NGO and business communities.

Knowledge. The Open Web, and the development of Open Source Tools,
are changing every day. This will be a “graduate school” for Open
Source experts. It is a rare opportunity to have a representative
from Mozilla Firefox come to Cambodia to lead a “hackathon” for two
days. And participants will learn new skills necessary to get jobs as
IT professionals in social network as well as online newspapers, and
of course at all the NGOs and the IT private sector. They will learn
details of the next generations of Firefox and Thunderbird, as well as
security tools for encryption from Tactical Tech, etc.

Develop civil society. Maybe most important, participants will
contribute to their own community: protecting the Open Web from
Internet censorship, developing experimental tools for human rights
portals like Sithi.org, and breathing more life into the Open Source
Community in Cambodia.

Next activities

Those who are selected to be Mozilla Assistants for the workshop will
have special access to the organizers, and will be able to participate
in post-workshop design sessions on the Open Source Tools brainstormed
at the workshop. Those will involve follow-up meetings to work on web
tools like the new Open Development Cambodia platform, and Sithi.org.
