Hi everyone, I am also a newbie to MozFest and thinking to propose session on something like "The Modern art of Web Designing". In this, I would like to introduce people about the futuristic methods of web design and development like people instructing a smart assistant to create their website or let AI understand from your pencil diagram, what you want to make. I can show examples and let people explore how they are working and what kind of research is going on in it.
I have few questions in it:
Only THREE hours to send us your proposal. If you're concerned it's not good enough, please consider sending it anyway! We especially want to hear from people who have never sent us anything before. We know it might not be perfect first go. We don't want perfect! https://mozillafestival.org/proposals
These next 4 weeks our teams will try to help you shape the session to improve. Those that are successful get access to training in September. We also have a 14 week peer mentored support oportunity through Open Leaders. https://foundation.mozilla.org/opportunity/mozilla-open-leaders/
Nice one. Great strategy. Facilitators are absolutely recommended to promote their sessions from now to even after the festival. Just please please please don't @ wranglers unecessarily.
The +1's and organic conversation in the issues are a good litmus test. An additional layer of interest like this, drives not only butts on seats on the day, but gathers a community surrounding the projects itself. If projects come with their already highly engaged community it's cool. But some are real new, so the +1's etc are a phenomenal early boost of confidence.
And to be quite honest THAT is precisely what this event is about. Increasing attention to open projects, building confidence, increasing conversations, connecting with the full stack of community through devs, designers, PMs, librarians, researchers, journalists, funders, governance, standards etc. Starting early and not scrambling to find an audience in October is a pro move.
