To Be Completed by the Audience

Submit a Question for the Speaker(s) here:

  • Mr. Araldi — I think that you picked a great theme. However I my question for you is if you know of similar works in the world in other areas? I ask like this because I think Mozilla knows hackasaurus a bit but the general direction Mozilla is not yet involved — is an attempt, of many possible, and I think it's a right direction. I recommend that meanwhile you could do a little of investigation beyond Mozilla, so we can use this value towards Mozilla. My 2 cents for now is [1] [2] [3]

Re: I'm searching more information about projects like Hackasaurus, but, I found two interesting links until now:

HackerTeen (Brazil):

  • Great to see this proposal! We're thinking about running a Hackasaurus training at Mozcamp where Mozillians can both learn how to use the tools and how to teach it to youth. Would you be interested in combining efforts? Let me know! michelle - at - mozillafoundation - dot - org
