Touring South America with Mozilla

In a week from now, starting next Thursday, I and some Mozilla colleagues will embark on a MDN (Mozilla Developer Network) tour of South America!

To be more specific, it will cover the South Cone, and within 8 days we will be visiting four countries:

  • Argentina
  • Uruguay
  • Brazil
  • Chile

I was in Chile in November last year, and I’m very happy to go back to a thriving region with lots if interesting things going on! We will be arranging MDN Hack Days/Evenings, and it will be free to attend, so if you are in the region, sign up now!

The Schedule

This is an outline of the events we will be organizing in the region, and all but the MozCamp in Buenos Aires (which is for invited contributors) is open for for everyone. Our speakers will vary a bit, but I will personally be in all four locations.
