Hi Everyone, Hi Emma and Larissa,
I am Dorothee Danedjo Fouba, and I’m impatient to meet all of you for Mozilla OSD at Grace Hopper Conference. I am Mozillian, Mozilla Rep in Cameroon. I work as a multimedia journalist, a media education’Engineer and a Blogger in IT issues who has over seven years of experience working directly in digital journalism and IT&web sector, with about 10 years of experience in Journalism and communication fields. As a journalist, I work in General
Inspection of Cameroonian Ministry of Communication and as a freelance also .I am leading a blog www.dorotheedanedjo.com, which talks about IT related issues and the use of technology for communication and social media management. My Blog gives to people examples of using various IT techniques and tools for professional journalism and communication on web. As a member of civil society in Cameroon, I am leading Mozilla Cameroon. I am also one of the leader of the non-governmental initiative “Barcamp Cameroon”, an association of people interested by web and IT issues. As a women empowerment specialist, I train women and girls on STEM fields. These non-profit-making activities enable me to travel around the country, Africa to inform and to train communicators and journalists on multimedia tools for generating online content, community and social media management. I am launching this month, a multimedia teaching platform on web for journalist and communicators. This workshop will really help me to be more specialised on Free and Open source software and techniques.
