[Video] MozKopdar Event in Bandung Introduces Boot to Gecko

Last weekend, id-Mozilla held a meet up event of MozKopdar Bandung, which is the first MozKopdar event held in Bandung. In addition to Bandung, this event was also held in other cities such as Jakarta and Bekasi.

MozKopdar Bandung took venue at Potluck Kitchen starting at 11 AM. This meet up event, as described by Fauzan Alfi – MozReps, was filled by introduction of Mozilla Student Reps as well as other various events such L10n Sprint or translating Firefox browser into local languages namely Bahasa Indonesia and Sundanese. The event was also filled by the announcement of the latest information on various Mozilla projects.

MozKopdar Bandung was also attended by Arky, Community Manager for Localization (L10n) Asia, who was present to help the translation process from the technical side as well as introducing Boot to Gecko (B2G), which is an open source operating system for mobile devices from Mozilla. Other information about B2G can be seen here and here. Moreover, Arky also explained the various processes and essential stages that can be done by those who are interested to help in the Firefox browser translation project.

I also had the opportunity; even though short, to talk with Arky and ask some questions, both about local events and about B2G. Arky also said that the development of Mozilla community in Indonesia is very good. One of their works is the mascot Kumi beside of course their support of translation process or localization of Firefox browser. At the event, I also saw enthusiastic participants (most participants are students) to help in translating the Firefox browser into local languages including Sundanese.

Here’s a brief  interview with Arky and a little demo of B2G installed in Samsung Galaxy S II.
