Make Web Not War (MWNW) emerged in 2009 in Toronto. The vision was to bring together open-source communities and Microsoft to explore the possibilities of using open-source technology on the Microsoft platform. No one knew if the idea would fail or be deemed visionary, even cool. Luckily developers thought MWNW was worth exploring and the launch was an overwhelming success. The event was repeated the following year in Montreal and then in Vancouver in 2011.
