Firefox 4 Seoul Party was held at Club Mansion, Hongdae in Seoul on April 23th, 2011. Over 120 Firefox fans enjoyed this event despite $10 entrance fee.
Especially Chris Jones, Andreas Gal of Mozilla Corporation and Eri Inoue of Mozilla Japan were joined us and celebrated Firefox 4 launching with Korean community.
Attendees got many Firefox SWAGs including team firefox sticker, button, arm band from Mozilla and good firefox4 sticker, file holder from Mozilla Japan. In addition, Daum.net – a strong sponsor for Mozilla – prepared mugcup and notebook and sponsored all budget of place rent and dinner. Thanks for all!
Before party time, we had developers meeting with Mozilla speakers for 2 hours. Over 50 people were joined and discussed with them for Firefox 5 features. Chris Jones spoke about Firefox’s Out-of-tab process and graphic accelerations and Andreas Gal did about JägerMonkey and research topics such as Rust, DOM.js and Servo.
We started the party with ice-break questions to attendees. Four families accompanies with their kids and ten people have used Firefox from phoenix. One guy was single for 7 years and he got 4GB usb gift instead of girl friends!
Quiz time was also enjoyed, but there were few people to give correct answers. Please try it yourself.
- What’s name of the Firefox 4’s new feature grouping tab?
- When was the Firefox 1.0 released?
- How many languages supports Firefox 4?
- What’s a chapter and verse of Book of Mozilla in Firefox 4?
- What’s an animation movie appearing Red panda?
- Who is a philosopher used term of Persona?
After the quiz time, we had cake-cutting ceremony to celebrate Firefox 4 launching with singing birth day song together. I thought this cake is the most beautiful in the world.
It came to a great finale of the party with a short concert of Band Persona. It was great performance and this band will be official for Firefox Korean community. (You can see it in end part of party wrap-up video.)
Finally I thank to Chris, Andreas and Eri for visiting Korea, Mozilla’s Gen Kanai, Mary Colvig and Korean volunteers for supporting event and all attendees.
See you in Firefox 5 party soon!
