Dear Firefox OS Africa readers, we are happy to catch-up with you today after a truly amazing week across the continent from Cape Town to Yaoundé! Sit back, relax and enjoy!
Firefox OS Africa at Africacom
First things first – as you may know if you are following us on Twitter, our team attended the big tech African event Africacom in Cape Town. During the 3 days, they presented Firefox OS, met amazing people and…. won an award!! Yes, the Orange KLIF has been crowned as the ‘Best Device for Africa’! Want a sneak peek of the evening? Watch this video:
For more details about those 3 fantastic days, stay tuned! Our Mozillians are preparing a great article telling you everything all about what went on. Stay tuned for the highlights, next week.
Women Entrepreneurship Day
On Thursday 19th November, we celebrated WED across the World. It was a good occasion to highlight once again our dear friend Ethel Coffie, an amazing example of what women can do to change the course of history. We are also looking to talk, support and celebrate women in Africa so if you want to get in touch, DM us here.

Abdelrahman Samy – Egypt FSA superstar in the Mozilla blog
We had the pleasure of reading a fab portrait of our Arabic localizer Abdelrahman in a blog post celebrating the FSA, the Mozilla programme dedicated to students. Inside his club, Firefox Student Club at AAST, he plays with all the tools offered by Mozilla to code and make the web a better place, which he is teaching to newcomers. If you’re in Alexandria and want know more? All the details are right here.
