It’s been a while since I last had something here! Just a quick rundown of what I’ve been doing since I last posted:
MozPH Community Meet-up in Cebu
Sir Bob, Ryan and I went to Cebu to meet-up with potential community members there. We met a lot of new people and we sure had lots of fun. Cebu is a rising tech city in the south and it is awesome that we have Mozillians over there. As a follow-up on the event, the team went back last May 17 to have a MozTour with the college that houses the largest computer lab in the Philippines.
MozPH Women’s Month Celebration
From March 15 to March 29 we had a series of all-girl events all held at Palet Express. I have blogged about these events on the Mozilla PH website. It is my first time to organize an event series for consecutive weeks and I enjoyed the pressure of it.
April is the Holy Week and graduation season in the Philippines so we deemed it is pretty hard to organize an event, especially for me as I have to make myself available for possible weekend work in preparation for our company’s ISO audit by our certifying body. Also, as the MozCamp season becomes near, I was very lucky to get invited to attend the MozCamp Design Session in San Francisco last April 23-25. Unfortunately due to some personal commitments I made on the 26th, I have to leave by April 24 (US time) to be in the Philippines by 4AM on Saturday, as I have to attend an officemate’s 10AM wedding and a 4PM graduation ceremony of a loved one. That day was kinda dreamy because I spent a lot of it sleeping while on the way to the venues and while not actively participating. I coped with the jetlag fast, apparently.
We started this May with the launch of the beautiful Firefox 29 and we are now off to our last day of our first month-long web design workshop series on Saturday. May is good. I have learned more about teaching the Web and I hope to improve my skills on that. Other than that, I believe the facilitators discovered a lot about themselves too in terms of teaching and we really hope to improve our workshop series program in the future. We received one hell of a huge good news and I am looking forward to take advantage of that opportunity in accomplishing my goal in improving how we teach the Web. Good luck to me!
