Mozilla Festival (MozFest) 2018

‹ Back
Builders, creators, inventors, and tinkerers – we can start to connect half the world. Meet us at Mozfest.

Around 3.5 billion people do not have Internet access, many of them living in remote locations. How can they share the benefits this amazing resource brings?

Tackling the digital divide is not easy, but everyone can help. Looking for a way to lend a hand? Come to Mozfest and help #SwitchItOn

Sound awesome? Find Us At Mozfest

If you love the Internet, you’ll love Mozfest. We’ll be there to show how people in some of the world’s most remote locations are building and running Internet connections of their own. Community Networks are a great compliment to traditional solutions around Internet access. Each is unique and each is created by communities, for communities, with communities.

We’ll be there featuring and large story display of community networks around the world. If you like getting your hands dirty, you can also roll up your sleeves and learn how to build your own Internet connection!

Here’s where:

MozFest House,
October 22-26,
RSA, Central London
Ravensbourne University, Greenwich

Workshop: Back to Basics: Making Your Own Connections
Oct 27th, 11:15 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.
Decentralization track
Level 6 – 603
Ravensbourne University, Greenwich

Participants will learn how to build a do-it-yourself Internet connection using mesh technologies.

Nico Pace will lead a hands-on session using open source hardware WiFi router to create a network onstage, work with participants to build a peer-to-peer platform, stream videos and even show how peer-to-peer instant messaging can happen.

It will be all about tinkering, exploring possibilities, and showing how anyone, anywhere, can connect their community.

This is a Shed session.

If you can’t make it to Mozfest, there are many other ways you can help. Join us and become part of an amazing community dedicated to creating an Internet for everyone.
