Today Mozilla has launched its new Webmaker program, with the aim of opening up the build blocks of the web to create a new generation of website makers.
Mozilla’s goal is to help millions of people move from using the web to making the web, and are inviting people to take part in a massive learning campaign entitled The Summer Code Party. The campaign, which starts on June 23rd, will run all summer long and include free local events and teach-ins around the globe.
Blog.Mozilla.org states that the aim is to ‘help the world increase their understanding of the web and take greater control of their online lives.’ Webmaster will try to achieve this by offering authoring tools and software, practical starter projects to help people of all levels get creative with the web, and a community aimed at bringing people with diverse skills and backgrounds together.
The new Mozilla Webmaker web site will launch on June 6th.
