Summary: In keeping with the Mozilla Foundation's mission to grow a generation of Web Makers, we have been developing tools and holding workshops to concretely demonstrate Web technology and the concept of openness. During this session we invite participants to take part in one such workshop, the Parapara Animation workshop, as we discuss how convey the technology and philosophy behind the Open Web. Furthermore, we will share the lessons we have learned from running such workshops including how they can be used to further grow the Mozilla community.
