As of January 2012 we had agreed on we would have to create three teams which we called The Power of 3, and Yes 2012 was a success with Engagement team and Localization team moving forward and rapidly expanding! and the Development team a bit slow.So I was thinking way before to at the very least establish a core group of volunteer developers to help the MozillaPH Development team to get started.
With the help of a student volunteer Marcus Ang who also specializes in development, we had discussed of a meet-up, at first we just had thought of a simple gathering of developers just to hear what the current trends in terms of development today and other events that might come for Devs ,and we reached the final decision to conduct a MozCoffee for Developers. I’ts almost 2 months of preparation and yes the day Finally arrived when MozillaPH Development team IGNITES!
The MozCoffee of the MozillaPH Development Team was held in our usual MozCoffee Spot! in The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at the Two-ecomm tower. to begin I started a short spiel and introduction of myself. then for the latest news and updates of the Mozilla Philippines Community, The Community Manager Eusebio “Jun” Barrun Jr.
Followed by Robert “bob” Reyes to update them about the progress of FirefoxOS,
