This is a guest post by Rob Hawkes, a Technical Evangelist at Mozilla. Rob lives and works in Bournemouth and also studied for 3 years at Bournemouth University.
This Saturday the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) are proud to be sponsoring the new hackspace at BarCamp Bournemouth. Mozilla believes in a Web that is hackable so it was logical to help support the BarCamp when I heard that there was going to be a space for hacking this year. Anything that encourages people to break things down and learn how they work is good in my book.
I hold a special place in my heart for the local BarCamp and I’m really happy to help support it this year. Not too long ago it was the place where I did my first ever bit of public speaking. It’s a great opportunity for anyone to come along and talk about what they love.
The MDN hackspace will be open all day Saturday and anyone is free to come along and hack on any projects that they’re already working on or want to start during the weekend. You’ll get extra kudos if you hack on a Web-based project.

See you there!
I’m excited to attend this year and I’m looking forward to hanging around in the hackspace and seeing all the projects that people are working on.
See you on Saturday!
