Summer Code Party wrap-up: submit to the Hall of Fame
The first-ever Summer Code Party is now wrapped up, and was a huge success:
- 685 Summer Code Party events
- spread across 80+ countries
- reaching more than 5,305 people
The new Webmaker Hall of Fame provides highlights from the summer, and now needs your contribution. What was the most amazing thing you made or saw this summer? Who inspired you, taught you, or helped you most? Who should the Mozilla Webmaker and Summer Code Party community learn about, or get to know?
