The Chattanooga Public Library is celebrating 21st century literacies and learning with two back-to-back events happening Saturday, August 2 at the Downtown Branch. The events kick off with DevDev Demo Day from 10:30am until 11:30am on the 2nd Floor, followed by the launch of Chattanooga’s first Mozilla Maker Party from noon until 3pm in the library’s maker space, The 4th Floor.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news in Chattanooga recently you’ve most likely heard a lot about the Mozilla Community Gigabit Fund. So what exactly is Mozilla doing in Chattanooga? The aim of the Community Gigabit Fund is to “provide grants and resources for innovators exploring the use of next-generation gigabit technologies in Kansas City and Chattanooga.”
