If you missed it, then well you missed big time!!! The Mozilla-Ghana Team had an awesome time with students from Computer Science and
Engineering to celebrate the launch of the latest, freshest, awesomest browser from Mozilla, Firefox 4.
There was loads of food and drinks and swag to go round to make the event memorable. To prelude the festivities I gave a (short ) presentation and demo of the latest features baked into Firefox 4; the fresh UI, the App Tab, improved privacy and security, Panorama, and my personal favorite Firefox Sync, check out more on the new features in Firefox 4 here. I also shared on Firefox for mobile (Android, iPhone and Nokia N900) but was without one to demo with . Then the fun began with music, chatter, drinks and munchiest. Music rocked, people talked and everyone was happy to be there, fun! fun!! fun!!!

Last March, the Mozilla Ghana Team had the opportunity to speak at the premier ICT training institution in Ghana, IPMC.
Represented by the dynamic Elikem Emerson, the team shed light on how to be a Mozilla contributor and the various ways to be involved with the Mozilla project. The talk also featured the introduction of the Mozilla Ghana community and the upcoming Firefox 4 launch party.
Kudos to Elikem for a good job done, and thank you to IPMC for the opportunity offered us.
