Mozilla's 2012 London Festival officially announced
Alongside the launch of a new web site, Mozilla's Matt Thompson has provided more details about this year's upcoming Mozilla Festival, the non-profit organisation's annual "celebration of learning and innovation". Unlike most traditional conferences, Thompson describes Mozilla's Festival as a gathering that places emphasis on both hands-on activities and collaboration, as opposed to passively listening to presentations.
Open for anyone to attend, the event brings together individuals from all walks of life including developers, designers, journalists, educators, film makers and gamers, from more than 40 different countries. More than 800 people are expected to attend the 2012 event, which will take place from 9 to 11 November at Ravensbourne in London. Themes for this year's sessions include Coding for Kids, Hackable Games, and Skills and Badges, as well as Making the Web Physical, Web-native Cinema and Webmaking for Mobile. A full list of planned sessions can be found on the Schedule page.
Registration for the event is now open and costs £40 for a regular ticket; youth tickets for those 18 years of age or younger are priced at £3 each. Further information about the event can be found on the Mozilla Festival web site and on the MozillaWiki. Highlights of last year's Mozilla Festival can be found on the 2011 web site and in a video on Mozilla's YouTube channel.
