Sunday is Mother's Day! Why not send Mom a hand-crafted web page to show her how much you care? Mozilla makes a tool that makes it easy to tell mom you love her -- Webmaker! We're working on a prototype this week that will help people make a page for Mom -- and learn a little HTML and CSS along the way. We'll share a sneak peek in today's lightning presentation from Jacob Caggiano.

  1. Sign up for Maker Party 2013. Or invite your Mom! :) June 15 - Sep 15. Get together at thousands of big and small webmaking events around the world.
  2. Join our new "Teach the Web" open online course. Boot camp for Maker Party. Growing a small army to teach the web: programmer mentors, techie grandmas, teachers, novelists, girl scout hackers and you. Meet them and check out highlights here.
  3. 8 other fun ways to get involved with Webmaker this week.
