Mozilla Global Sprint

Buonasera popolo di Internet,

Volevo segnalarvi il Mozilla Global Sprint, l’evento organizzato dalla Fondazione Mozilla a cui sarà possibile partecipare dal primo al due Giugno in oltre sessanta luoghi pubblici di ventisette paesi nel Mondo, oppure, attraverso la rete Internet.

L’evento permetterà a tutti partecipanti di conoscere e collaborare ad oltre quaranta progetti opensource da tutto il mondo che hanno l’obbiettivo di proteggere e migliorare Internet, come risorsa libera, inclusiva e aperta. Diverse reti di scienziati, educatori, artisti, ingegneri e altri si incontreranno tutti assieme dal vivo e online per innovare in maniera libera.

I progetti saranno suddivisi in cinque differenti traccie relative ad Internet quali: Innovazione Libera (Open Innovation), Inclusione Digitale (Digital Inclusion), Decentralizzazione (Decentralization), Privacy e Sicurezza (Privacy + Security) e Alfabetizzazione Digitale (Web Literacy).

E’ possibile ordinare gratuitamente il proprio biglietto per poter partecipare sia dal vivo che online. In Italia saranno due le Università che quest’anno hanno deciso di ospitare l’evento. L’Università di Catania e L’Università Bicocca di Milano. La lingua utilizzata preferenzialmente sarà l’Inglese ma attualmente i progetti che parteciperanno al Mozilla Global Sprint Italiani saranno tre. OpenStudentBook Project, Progetto nato dalla volontà di creare una piccola guida per avvicinare gli studenti di tutte le facoltà Universitarie a progetti nel Opensource, Mozilla Italia l10n Guide, un Progetto con lo scopo di creare una guida di Localizzazione dall’Inglese all’Italiano per il software e i progetti opensource e WikiToLearn che ha lo scopo di realizzare delle piccole realtà locali nel mondo al fine di raccogliere quanto più possibile del materiale utile per lo studio degli esami universitari.

Penso che questa sia una grandiosa opportunità per poter entrare in contatto con nuove comunità e nuovi progetti che nascono per costruire il web del domani. Per qualunque informazione visitate il sito internet https://mozilla.github.io/global-sprint/

Vi aspetto numerosi al Global Sprint il primo e il due Giugno online oppure a Milano o Catania!!!

Un Abbraccio.

Edoardo.

 

 

FOSDEM 2017: I’m there

Hello Guys,

20170205_162249I’m very happy to share with all of you my experience at the FOSDEM! This year was the first time for me here! That’s amazing!!!  Here you could find, talk and know some and some other volunteers from the most important open source communities. It’s only that? Absolutely not! The FOSDEM represent an important event where all the communities could share their works, technologies and their innovative ideas. For two days a University Campus be an open source temple with some booths where you can ask and find some amazing news a information, specific room where some amazing volunteer share their skills and project with specific talks, and last but not the least, good beers and food .

20170203_223837The FOSDEM is placed at the ULB on Brussels, Belgium. All start with the Beer event on Friday Night at Delirium Tremens. Some people with great beer!!! Amazing!!! On Saturday all people arrive at the ULB and the show could start. The location isn’t far away from the center of Brussels (approx. 20 minutes using the 71 Bus).

 

I’m been involved in the Booth of my lovely Mozilla community. For me stay there it was fantastic. For some fact. The first was that I can help my community to spread the voice in a Open, Inclusive and Free Web for everyone in the world, second, I had the opportunity to discuss with some people 20170204_172500over the Europe about our amazing community. In mozilla I have the opportunity to been involved in different role in the Mozilla communities, so, this is a great and important possibility for me to figure out how I can help the other in our European contest and in my region. On the booth, where I mainly involved, I talk a lot of all the Mozilla programs (especially Mozilla Campus Club Program & Mozilla Club) and  about the new technologies 20170205_120946and languages promoted by Mozilla (especially about Rust & the Virtual Reality on the Web using A-Frame). In all these two days I think to have been the opportunity to talk with at least one hundred of peoples about all these topics and moreover about the Nightly version of Firefox and more, and more other topics 🙂 For me this experience is awesome!!!

Thank you guys for all that, and thank you Mozilla for give me this amazing opportunity to be a part of this community.

The First month of “Webateca” is Awesome!!!

Hello guys,

Today I want to wrote somethings here about this first month of “Webateca” in Cagliari. 20161105_195403The Webateca is a series of laboratories made by Mozilla Cagliari Club to explore the three areas of interaction with the Web (Read, Participate and Write).

In this first month we worked about how read the web, in details, we explored how works the Search Engine & the Browsers, good tips of navigation and how make good keywords, moreover we talked about the HTTP & HTTPS protocols, the 20161105_164151Add-ons and about the hidden business of the web and some easy tips to protect our-self about all this. This last Saturday we done a little Quiz to know if all people who participate have understood well all the topics presented. The results are AWESOME!!! All people have passed with success this little exam. 20161119_170721The next step, first to stop for the Christmas Holidays, is talk about how customize Firefox and how use a Mail-Client Application. First to say “Hello” at all the participants I want to plan a little Christmas Party  to celebrate this first month and half of activity.

All will finish first of Christmas? Absolutely NO! We will start from the second Week of January to explore somethings regarding the Encrypt and how participate on the Web. And from February, if all will gone well, we will start to explore how write our Open & wonderful Web!!! 20161203_173254

To be more inclusive and help the people to reach the other in all the week I made a E-learning website. You can visit it here: http://webateca.online
