MozillaYVR preps to #teachtheweb at Vancouver Maker Faire

As part of our preparation to #teachtheweb at Vancouver Maker Faire this weekend, MozillaYVR had a Kitchen Table style hack jam (with pizza of course!) on our own on May 28.

We started off with hot pizza & broke down to our best 80’s Dance Moves as the ice breaker.  (sorry, no pictures were taken for this part due to our Dance Moves being too awesome for the camera).  :p

Then, a speed-dating style Webmaker Tool mini-challenges series started!  With the first contestant being X-Ray Goggles.  Participants came up with their “ideal date” by hacking a webpage featuring their ideal date.  We wanted to share this but unfortunately the X-ray Goggles’s publish function failed on us that night…  I’ve confirmed that by the time of this blog post, the publish function is back on and hopefully it would work during Maker Faire. 🙂

Sticking with the theme of speed dating, our second webmaker contestant was Thimble and participants were asked to create a profile page about themselves or about their ideal date.  I gotta say, these are some pretty creative looking profile pages made using Thimble.

Last by not least, we have Popcorn Maker!  Participants were asked to create a fun project featuring their personal hobby/interests.
