Hello ! It been a little bit long time I haven’t update my blog! Sorry about this! These days I had been busy with my work and I had exam for the first year French class! Fortunately I pass my French exam as one of the person who passed the exam among 5 person at the whole class 🙂 Another good news is I had been invited at Ada Camp and here is my interview for Ada Camp. Please read this interview before I add my News Blog post !
My name is Chit Thiri Maung, In Burmese community they known me as “ahkeno” which is my blog name and nick name.
Tell us a little about your home community and/or your work.
What is (one of) your key open technology/culture communities or projects? What do you enjoy about it?
Open Source! I have been familiar with this words since 2008. I started work with on Joomla after finished my Master Degree. Joomla is first one I work on and Firefox is my default browser!
Last 4 years,In Myanmar we don’t have good connection and we gave expensive money for using Internet (expensive than these days). So we used internet at Cyber Cafe. First I start met with Firefox as Cyber Cafe. I start used it and like it so much! Lucky I didn’t start use internet with IE. Then days by days passed I work on Company, I used Opensource product every day, I delight to use Open source product. Then I started dream that’s open source community will grow up in Myanmar.
First I try was Joomla Myanmar Community.I made event at CMS’s camp Manadalay 2011 and talk/shared about Joomla at BarcampMDY2011.
After that’s I start work on Mozrep at 2011 June (this time). All my dream come true for I can make Mozilla Myanmar community. I spread out Mozilla Love with volunteers at BarcampYGN2012 and BarcampMDY2012.
One thing I proud to be Mozillian is, I had attend Mozcamp Asia 2011 at November. We met Super awesome Mozillian. Share ideas, learn each other and exchanging knowledge. Because of this empower, we made 93% of Localization with enthusiastic contributors.
I have lot of story about Open Source and Mozilla Love! All this stuff are summarize of my open source love 🙂
Here is my blogpost of Being Remo.

Before I answer this question.I want to talk about woman Aung San Suu Kyi. Hope Everybody know her! Being she is not from Technology field, she is the one I admire! Also another woman who I admirer : Mitchell Baker.
Talk on our Burmese IT Community, women are not too much. I’m the one who leading Mozilla Community. So everyday I faced challenging for working together with men.
Outside of your involvement with open technology/culture, what are you interested in and working on?
If I not working computer, I love talking with people, learning something (now I learn French), taking photos, travel sometime and hang out with my beloved MoM.
