Teach webdev? Come to Barcelona!
September 22, 2010 § 4 Comments
Do you teach web development? Support people who build web sites? Or just like to share what you know with other developers? If so, we want you at Mozilla’s Learning, Freedom and the Web Festival in Barcelona.
One of our big aims with the Festival is to encourage people to teach and learn web development in interesting new ways. Which is why we’ve invited people like John Britton:
As he says in the video, John will hold a session where people can deconstruct and reconstruct his P2PU Web 200: Anatomy of a Web Request course. The idea is: help John make his course better, and maybe learn to teach it yourself.
The Barcelona event will include a whole Webcraft Toolshed track for sessions like this. Other activities will include: collaboratively developing next semester for the P2PU School of Webcraft; meeting the people behind the W3C’s WASP Interact curriculum; provide feedback on the new Mozilla Developer Network tutorials. And you can propose your own.
It’s worth saying, this is a part of a much large Mozilla Drumbeat push to connect people who teach web development with people at the radical (and most webbish) edge of teaching online. That’s why we’re working with P2PU to start the School of Webcraft. It’s also why we’ve got a whole lot of ‘teaching webcraft’ sessions in Barcelona right next door to ‘crazy radical innovations in how we learn’ sessions.
Practically: if you ‘teach’ web development in one way or another, Barcelona is a chance to both learn and contribute a ton. If you’re interested, you can find our more and register at: http://drumbeat.org/festival.
