Womoz Warangal’14

28th July 2014,

Jayamukhi Institute of Technological Sciences, Warangal.

Hola Amigos,
Mozilla Club Warangal
in association with Mozilla India  have organized a special and a much
awaited event named Womoz Warangal’14
on July 28th 2014. This event was Especially organized for girls to increase
the female contribution in Open Source Communities. The Event have been planned
on August 9th 2014,but a shocking news made us to change the date of the event
and the shocking news was Hema Bhanu got
the Date of Joining on July 31st , so the date was Preponed.

It was cool and rainy day on 28th July 2014, the
participants started coming to the venue. After allotting the seats to them, we
were waiting for the Chief Guest. Within few minutes after registration, Our
Chief Guest Dr.B.Rama Garu, Chair Person, Board of Studies, Kakatiya
, Warangal reached the Venue and now the inaugural function


Inaugural Function started with lighting the Lamp followed
by Prayer song. Hema Bhanu gave a
report of all the Mozilla Club Warangal Activities from the past 2 years and
importance of this event being organized only for girls.

Our Staff Co-coordinator, G.Jose Mary, Associate Professor, JITS congratulated the club
members for organizing such a big event especially for the women. Also
congratulated Ajay and Bhargav for receiving the Firefox OS Tablets.

Dr.Rangaiah ,
Director of Jayamukhi Group of Institutions felt very happy that many of the
women participants not only registered but also came to attend the event and he
in his speech said that
 “ Upload Talents, Download Future “. 

Later, Dr.T.V.R.NReddy, Joint Secretary and A.O., Jayamukhi Group of Institutions and G.Srihari, Principal also encouraged
the participants to involve more in Open Source Communities which makes an
individual acquire leadership skills.

Dr.B.Rama, the
Chief Guest said women’s contribution in IT Sector is very less compare to men
even though equal opportunity is provided to men as well as women. Woman
drop-outs are more after their graduation and gave SECURITY as a reason for
this issue.

Later, after felicitating the chief Guest, the session
started by Hema Bhanu (Mozilla Reps)
on FOSS, Womoz and later JavaScript session was continued. The
participants felt this as a great opportunity for them contributing to an open
source company being a student.

After the completion of session, it was time for lunch and we
had a yummy lunch and back to the Lab for sessions.  We divided the 200 Participants into two
[1] Localization
[2] Webmaker
First 100 were sent to Localization lab and remaining 100
were sent to Webmaker Lab. Hema Bhanu
handled the Localization Session
along with the support crew Bhargav and Maniraj.
In the other track, it was Webmaker Session and it was
handled by me (Ajay Kumar Jogawath, a
Webmaker Mentor
) with the Support Crew of Bala, Vijay and Sonu.  I started by asking how to create webpages,
Videos and how to hack or remix a website or webpage. Many answered that using
HTML, CSS and JS and yes they were right. Now I introduced the tools of
Webmaker to them

[1] Thimble
[2] Popcorn Maker
[3] X-ray Goggles
[4] Appmaker
 The audience were
happy that using simple Webmaker tools they can create webpages by checking the
output on one side and source code on other side. Creating a Web Video
inserting the popping of the text, images and animations. Remixing the webpages
using the X-ray goggles and creating apps for Firefox OS using Appmaker tool.
Hemanth Vidyamari, a
Webmaker Mentor
have showed them demos on each of the tool to everyone.

Later, I said them to create a Webmaker profile by signing
into the Webmaker Portal using persona and then start remixing the webpages
from the gallery section of Webmaker Portal.Here is the etherpad of the Webmaker Signups :

Then, I spoke on the most important topic Maker Party which is organized globally
throughout the world and how they can be a part of Maker Party by attending,
organizing and collaborating with the events.
After Completion of the Parallel tracks of Localization and Webmaker, it was time for Firefox
OS App Development
. I (Ajay KumarJogawath) along with HemanthVidyamari in one track and SantoshViswanatham (Mozilla Reps) from Hyderabad and Bhargav Gupta (FSA) from
Warangal in another track delivered session on Firefox OS, followed by App

After the completion of Sessions, we had a Feedback Session where different
attendees gave a positive feedback saying that “Learnt New things just within
few hours‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúCreating Webpages using simple tools‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúDeveloping Apps is never
so easy‚ÄĚ and many more.

Feedback was followed by distribution of Certificates and
then the closing ceremony with a dance on a song from Himmatwala “Naino Mein sapna sapno Mein sajna, sajna pe
dil aagaya, ha sajna pe dil aagaya
‚ÄĚ and all the participants, organizers,
staff and everyone made steps with one another on this song. I got a chance to make
few steps with the Director of the College Prof. P. Rangaiah.

Now, it was time for the Photo Session where we had a Group
Photo with all the participants, Volunteers, Organizers, Staff and everyone.

Atlast, we waved hands to everyone saying “Good Bye!! See
You Again‚ÄĚ.
 Finally, I would like to thank Mozilla for giving us a chance to organize this event.  I would like to thank the College Management JITS for being so supportive in each and every aspect and making this event a huge success. I would like to thank all the Volunteers and organizers who helped in successful running of the event. I would like to thank the Photographer Samarpan Raj for wide coverage of the event.

Webmaker India IRC Meet July 4 2014


, , , , , ,

Hola Amigos,

Today i would like to share my experiences regarding the IRC meet that was organized by Dyvik.

This meet was really productive and nearly 25 mozillians(reps,FSA’s and Webmaker contributors) have participated in the IRC Meet.

Link to the Etherpad :

WebmakerIndia IRC Meet is an IRC Meeting where the mission is to spread about the mozilla webmaker project and organize the maker parties throughout India. Maker Parties are events which help us to learn, teach, share and make innovative things using the Webmaker tools like Thimble, Popcorn and X-ray goggles.This is a 6-day IRC meet where we will be solving the issues faced by newbies and those who wants to host maker parties in their region.

The main mission of this IRC Meeting is to make awareness regarding the Webmaker Project throughout the India (29 States and 600 districts ) and organize the maker parties which is going to be kick-off from July 15- Sep 15 2014

Many newbies have attended this and we were successful in answering the queries like how to join webmaker, how to organise a webmaker event. how to host maker parties,etc..,.

Dyvik said about how webmaker is different from other projects

  • ¬†A remix button for everything
  • ¬†A Gallery of makes
  • Common Publishing
  • User Accounts
  • Unique URL’s and hosting

Also, the concept of Womoz evolved because there are very few womoz in our country and we are planning for the Womoz Webmaker Parties too and that will be updated soon in the above etherpad.

Finally, i thank Dyvik for organizing and all other mozillians, reps and webmaker mentors and newbies who have participated in the IRC Meet and made this meet very productive.

Webmaker Session @ JITS


, , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone!!

I am here to share the experience regarding the Webmaker event in my college. An enthusiastic Mozillian , Sai Sharan who have been contributing to Mozilla from the past few months as an FSA was very much excited to speak regarding the Webmaker tools with his fellow students.

On 20th of March, Jayamukhi Firefox Club, had organized an event in JITS. we had a kick-off start with Sai Sharan who is very enthusiastic in sharing his experiences as an FSA.

He Started with the FSA program and then with the Webmaker Project explaining about the thimble, popcorn and hackasaurus tools. Later, it was my turn to make the session interactive.

I just asked them to share,what they learnt from the previous session, a girl stood and spoke about the tools, and said its really very awesome to create webpages. The students who attended were from 2nd year and they were listening to HTML and CSS for the first time and they felt like “Ooh is it so easy to create webpages?? ” I said yes!!!

Then, i started with some normal questions, so what you want to do for mozilla ?? how¬† u want to contribute to mozilla?? they were all silent, thats what they were lacking “Awareness”

So, i just started with the basic thing,,,What Mozilla is ?? What is Open Source?? How we can start contributing to open source?? What are the benefits if they work for open source commmunities??So,all these questions, i  put them on Board and started explaining one by one.


Later, i started speaking about various projects in mozilla like the Localization,Add-on Development, Web Development, Webmaker and many more. Here comes, the webmaker again. So, i asked again so now u know what the projects are and how u can be a part of them.

Now, i can see the enthusiasm in their faces,i could see the girls count more and so i decided to speak about the womoz project to them, So,i started with the Womoz Session, by encouraging them to come out of the fear,myths and all that they cant do this or that. After speaking about Womoz, i told them to come on the dais and speak about something or just share your experiences,again i can see no one is coming forward to speak. Then, i said, this is what the thing that stops you coming forward. Suddenly, they realized and started coming to dais and started speaking about their experience of the session.

                                         First girl to come forward and speak

              Now, we can see one by one coming on to the dais and sharing their experience.

I was really very happy if girls were encouraged, then can do anything!! They were happy to be a part of this session and they want to learn more in the future.


Then, i gave the urls for getting updated with the social networking sites, told them to add them in Official Facebook Group Mozilla India and Mozilla Club Warangal and also told them to follow on Google+ and Twitter.

Next, we are planning for an hands-on session, so that they can create,remix and hack the webpages and also create videos using the popcorn maker.

Apart from that Jayamukhi Firefox Club is planning for

1) Localization Day – Which we will be focussing on Localization Project

2) SUMO Day- We will be focussing on SUMO Projects

3) Firefox OS App Day- for making aware of firefox os apps and make them develop apps.

Finally, after the discussion, we concluded with a group snap.

Finally i was very happy for seeing the interest in the students, hope we will get more contributors in different projects.

Facebook Event Page Link :

As recently, we had inaugurated a Firefox Club in Balaji Institute of Engineering Sciences, the mozilla fever was on, and students of BIES club were enthusiastic in learning more about the mozilla. The event started at 10:00 am when Mozilla Reps Hema Bhanu Started with a Kickoff session including the topics like how to get involved in mozilla, then FSA and then womoz for girls.

Then it was time to start with the webmaker session, as many of them just know that webmaker is a project of mozilla to create webpages, videos and hack webpages, but they did not have hands on experience with them. So, i started giving Demo’s on Thimble , Popcorn and x-ray goggles one after the other.


After showing the demo’s on Webmaker tools i asked them to form a group of 4-5 members as we dont have laptops with everyone and then we told them to create their own webpages or remix the templates present in the Website

Later, they started creating makes by forming group.

 BIES Club Team

  KU Firefox Club and Team

 Sai Sharan and Vijay Martha

Bala  and Team

We gave them half an hour time after the completion of demo and then we closed the entries of the makes in the etherpad.

The following are the makes which we got in this event.






I really felt very happy that the maker party turned out to be a productive one with lots of makes with creative thoughts. Later Nikhil from Sathyabhama Firefox Club told about their Kidzilla Project. Some FSA’s from Jayamukhi Firefox Club already do some activities by going to school and teach the students of the School, so they asked Nikhil how they can be helpful to join in Kidzilla Project as they are already aware of the school children’s understanding towards the technology and the web.


After completion of Kidzilla Project, then we selected the best three makes and awarded them with webmaker tees, also we have some stickers of webmaker and distributed them to all the attendees of the Event.

Students receiving the mozilla webmaker tee.


Sangamithra receiving the webmaker tee from the hands of Institute owner Mr.Sadashiva.

BIES Team also made an awesome make and got a Webmaker tee

 Later, Sai Sharan, who was an active FSA from Jayamukhi Firefox Club as well as mozilla club warangal did a popcorn video and awarded with webmaker tee. After, this we had a feedback session, where we got really an awesome response from all the students.

Some said ” I never utilized the weekend, this is for the first time, i have gained much knowledge in short time”

One more girl said ” She never knew that making webpages and creating Videos with pop-ups is such easy “

and we also got many feedbacks and i was really feeling very happ for this.

 An interactive feedback session with the attendees, which was very positive and now the webmaker events are live and we have an awesome venue with systems and internet too, so we will be back with more awesome maker parties. Its time for webmakers to rock.

And Yea!!! now, time for a group photo with a success event.

I thank Mr. Sadashiva sir for giving permission to do this event in their premises and my friends Hemanth, Bhargav, Hema for their continuous support for organizing this events.

I thank Namu Srikanth, Mozilla Rep and Nikhil Patel for giving a session on Kidzilla.

Finally, thanks everyone, i am very happy to be a part of webmaker project.

Inauguration of Firefox Club – KITS Firefox Club (KFC)


, , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone!!!

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.

After group photo, everyone left and then we had the group photo with the organizing team of event and the new mozillians and my fellow Mozillians Hemanth , Bhargav and Hema 

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!!!

Jayamukhi Firefox Club – FSA Meetup


, , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone!!!

I am Ajay Kumar Jogawath, Firefox Club Lead – “Jayamukhi Firefox Club” hosted the FSA Meetup on Feb 04,2014 in the College Canteen.

This was an informal meetup of the students who have registered for the Firefox Student Ambassadors and not yet started with any activities as everyone was unaware of the wiki page.

In this meet, i started with my introduction as the Club Lead for Jayamukhi Firefox Club and told about the projects that i am contributing. Then i asked them to introduce everyone.

Everyone started introducing themselves and then i started with the Introduction of Mozilla, because i directly cannot go into the FSA Program.

So, i gave a glance about Open Source, Mozilla, its Projects and Products. Then i told them about the Firefox Student Ambassadors Program. Only few were registered for the FSA Program, so i told them first to get register for the FSA Program by going through the above link

Firefox Student Ambassador Application Form

Then i told them to complete the first five activities that an FSA should do after getting registered .


I gave it as a Start-up guide to all the FSA’s.

Then i talked about the recognition that they get as an FSA by explaining the above link

Recognition to FSA

Later on, i have shown them the cool videos of Mozilla,the first one was the Mozilla Story Video, and everyone was very much excited by watching the video and one of them Aravind  asked about how we can get involved into the Mozilla Projects and actually what projects that mozilla has??

Here comes the actual question and then i explained them about the Get Involved Page of Mozilla

Get Involved (link for the projects of mozilla)

Many of them were very much interested in Webmaker may be because of the demo that i have showed them, they got excited by the thimble webpages and the x-ray goggles.

Later a small brief about the projects from SUMO i.e., Army of Awesome, Support Forum and the Localization (KB )

And Finally, i concluded with the I am a Mozillian video of Mozilla Summit, they were feeling happy by seeing Indian Mozillians saying I am so and so and i am a mozillian.

Finally, at the end of the meetup, everyone said their name and “from now i am a mozillian too”.

I really felt very happy because of this meetup was a successful one because we have planned it just half-an-hour back. Now, that we have a good number of contributors and FSA’s are asking more about Mozilla, i am planning for my next meetup very soon.
