This Blogpost is about my experience during the inauguration of Firefox Club at Kakatiya Institute of Technological Sciences. This was the output of the meetup Mozilla Meetup with KITS Students Where new mozillians like Pujith, Spoorthy, Keerthi, Indraneel, Anusha and Satheesh took the initiative of Starting a Firefox Club in their College.
This Inauguration Started with the Speech of Head of Department, Dr. P. Niranjan. The talk was amazing made us get inspired.
After Inuaguration, it was Hema Bhanu’s turn to speak about Open Source, FOSS and its importance and then started about mozilla and its projects. Later talked about WoMoz.
Girls became enthusiastic by listening to WoMoz Session and that happens everywhere.
After Hema, Sudheesh grabbed a white board and started explaining all the geeky stuff. From data structures to projects available in Mozilla everything was covered by him. The best part was that he helped the students to relate what they have learnt so far to the needs of the industry. His talk on firefox and bugzilla was definitely a piece of cake.
Then it was my turn to speak about the Firefox Student Ambassador Program. I told about the activities that an FSA should do and the projects that they can get involved as an FSA.
And then a girl asked we as electronics student, how can we contribute to Mozilla, then i answered by starting with Webmaker Project because we need not to know any programming language for this.
Because Webmaker provides basic templates where everything is very easily documented so that even school children can understand the basic tags in html. The, told about the Webmaker tools i.e., Thimble,Popcorn and x-ray goggles using which we can make some cool stuff. It was nice interating with the students.
After completion of sessions, we had a feedback session where all the students spoke positive about the sessions, that made us very happy. Later we have distributed swags by asking some questions regarding the session.
After Swag Distribution, we then had a group picture.
Now,students from various colleges are requesting us to come to their college and inaugurate a club. This is really one of the best moments when we are requested to come to their college as a mozilla representative and told to speak about mozilla. This year has been very good to me because from right from January when we made the Action Plan 2014, and i am happy that we are moving as per the Mozilla Action Plan 2014 by getting more and more contributors from engineering colleges all over the city. Thanks Sai Kiran , Sudheesh , Meraj Imran and Hema Bhanu for always supporting me and Hemanth and Bhargav for always being with me.
Awaiting for the Inauguration of Firefox Club in Balaji Institute of Engineering Sciences on March 4th 2014. Yahoo!!!
