Volunteer subtask of #261

For purposes of this task - an 'Event' is a public-facing, community-hosted event with a goal of educating, inspiring and recruiting participation. It can be technical, or non-technical. An event is most successful and possible through collaboration and community partnership.

Brief description of task.

  • Compile resources (slide decks, blog posts, etc) that can lend to an effective workshop 'How to run an excellent event'. Emphasis is on quality of resources that can help, vrs a long list of everything about running events.
  • Agree on a list of learning outcomes related to this topic for development.
  • Create rough draft of 1 hour workshop curriculum ( I know, an hour isn't long)


Experience running public-facing events, for Mozilla or otherwise that can help teach some of the best practices for running an excellent event in an 'in person' or online workshop setting.
