Hello Firefox OS Community,
This week we’ve got some news from our Mozillians who attended some action-packed events, a very interesting interview about digital French-speaking Africa and news about an exclusive Mozilla event in London at the end of this month! So, what’s been happening then?
Infotech 2015 in Mauritius
As you probably know, INFOTECH took place a few days ago in Mauritius… and the KLIF was there! Our smartphone Orange KLIF was sold during the event which is actually the major annual Information and Communication Technology event organised by the National Computer Board in collaboration with the Ministry of Technology, Communication and Innovation. Our Mozillians Ganesh and Pamela visited this big fair and had the chance to buy the new KLIF!
Firefox OS Training in Madagascar
On the 14th and 15th of October our Mozillians from Madagascar organised trainings about Firefox OS development. These trainings took
place in Mahajanga, Antananarivo, Fianarantsoa and Toamasina in Orange shops. The attendees had the chance to have Julien Wajsberg and Natalia Martinez-Winter live from Paris Office, as special guests.
Interview Eric Adja
This week we came across an inspiring interview of Eric Adja, director of “Francophonie Digital”, in le Point Afrique. During this interview he gives his voice on the potential of the digital economy in French-speaking Africa and how to develop a global innovation strategy within this heterogeneous space, etc. We won’t give it all away – have a read here!

Mozillia Mauritius got their Mac Mini
In 2014, Mozilla decided to offer Mac Min to the Reps. These Mac Minis were hidden away in Mountain View but they could actually be very useful for Mozilla communities. Thus, our Mozillian Ganesh decided to take this chance and requested one Mac Mini which arrived a few weeks ago! This kind of support offered by Mozilla really helps our local communities in their missions, which is great news!
