Mozilla Drumbeat
Drumbeat is a global community of innovators like you, building a more awesome web and world. Connect with others. Find great projects. Or share your own.

Mozilla Drumbeat Hackfests
Drumbeat Hackfests are live collaborative events where tools and technologies that support the open web are designed and created. The theme of the 2011 China Drumbeat is citizen science on the web, a growing trend which is also called "citizen cyberscience". Some of the world's leading developers in this field will be participating, likeDavid Anderson, director of the famous SETI@home volunteer computing project.

In the event, you will see:
  • Several new projects and initiatives will be started.
  • New networks of developers and scientists will be formed.
  • The most promising prototypes will go forward to development.
  • Everyone will have lots of fun! (meeting with elites, hot discussions, awards, meals, gifts...)

About the Event
The 2011 China Mozilla Drumbeat event has two parts – an evening overview lecture series on 23rd March 7pm-9pm, and a two-day hackfest, 24th and 25th March. You may join just the first part, or both parts. If you join the hackfest, you should try to participate as long as possible, to get the full benefit of the event. Participation, all meals and beverages free of charge, including a hackfest dinner on 24th March.

What are the goals for 2011 China Mozilla Drumbeat event?
Increase awareness and participation of Chinese public in citizen cyberscience, and create new projects that help Chinese scientists. Bring Chinese open source web developer community together with Chinese scientists and international citizen cyberscience experts to build prototype solutions and better web interfaces for Chinese citizen cyberscience projects.

What is the event format of the two-day Hackfest?
Groups of about 4-5 developers work with 2-3 scientists on prototyping challenges that will help to promote citizen cyberscience in China and help Chinese scientists create new citizen cyberscience projects.

What will we work on in the two-day Hackfest?
Depending on your interests and skills, some of the following challenges will become the focus of the two-day hackfest. Please state which ones interest you most when you get the confirmation mail for the event after your registration.

Challenges for web developers…
  • Challenge 1: Make attractive Firefox-based web interface to citizen cyberscience on the Web projects, make it easy to build online teams, follow latest information about a favourite project.
  • Challenge 2: Develop an attractive Chinese interface to existing citizen cyberscience projects, that can be accessed from popular Chinese chat portals, and other Chinese social networking sites.
  • Challenge 3: Tsinghua-IBM 100x100 challenge: Develop web interface and promotion campaign to get 10,000 people to join an online Chinese team to help Tsinghua University researchers solve the problem of providing cheap, clean drinking water, using nanotechnology.

For smart phone app developers…
  • Challenge 4: Adapt volunteer computing, sensing and data collection projects to run on open platforms on mobile devices, with a Chinese user inteface. Examples include cataloguing regional plants and animals, and building earthquake sensor networks.
  • Challenge 5: Develop mobile phone app to measure when people are in proximity by bluetooth, in order to collect data for epidemiological modelling of TB and H1N1.

For processor enthusiasts…
  • Challenge 6: Adapt volunteer computing projects to run on Longsoon, the MIPS-based Chinese processor developed by Institute of Computing Technology of CAS. Make an interface to suck projects that is appealing to Chinese school child.

For online game developers…
  • Challenge 7: Explore ways of adapting Chinese genomic research to volunteer computing, and making an online game based on an open platform for doing gene defect detection for analyzing cancer patient genomes.

For virtual world enthusiasts…
  • Challenge 8: Develop a virtual data centre for volunteer computing teams to visualize their resources, learn more about the science behind their projects and compete with other teams.
