After that we moved to a small awesome activity i.e. “Mel-Milap” (Vineel’s Idea).

What is “Mel-Milap”? ——- Meet to all people like that you are meeting after a long time or after ten years. This helped a lot in the event. It has created an another type of environment in the hall, just within five minutes they become friends of each other.

Now we are moving to the next part of agenda i.e “Mozilla Mission and Firefox OS” and Mozilla India Story by Vineel. It was just an Awesome, participants got the chance to hear this person in the first meet.

And now we turned to Mozilla Community Rajasthan’s (A kinda part of Mozilla India) past activities and which were totally surprising for Vineel and all participants. Know more about it at: SlideShare

Time came for “Ali Baba And Forty Thieves”, “One two three four get on the dance floor” ūüėÄ Which was totally unforgettable part of this event.

Next We moved to the Wemaker with Outstanding Makers and to the App Development with Geeky persons. Makers was really awesome, we haven’t seen that type of makers in past events (Developers: you were also awesome ūüėČ ) with the help of Mr. Adit, Mr. Lavish and Mr. Tushar (These guys were track lead) and whole team.

DSC04871Now we got to hungry but Makers/Developers/Creators wasn’t, because food was ready and we invited attendees to please come and take food but they were busy with Webmaking (Event i have taken twice time ūüėÄ but they were still working.), It shows how people are interested in Mozilla’s #Teachtheweb Campaign. Its not only just keep things in your pocket but also you can teach others with kinda resource and also teach them who are non-technical people.

Here is outcomes of Webmaker (Awesome Apps using Appmaker) and ideas about Apps: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/MiniCamp-Webmaker-AppDev

Lets move to the SUMO and Contribution ways, we discussed about this with newbies because some of them were interested to go with L10n, Add-Ons, Education, Documents etc, Slide is available at: Slides

Mozilla Journey from Jodhpur to San Francisco

Hello World..!!

A story of a boy with Mozilla is going to start here, Who is Meghraj Suthar (Raj), From Jodhpur Rajasthan (India), pursuing B.Tech at JIET Group of Institutions, Jodhpur (Affiliate by NBA). I have started my journey with Mozilla from Jodhpur (My Home Town) with¬†Mozboot @ IITJ¬†Event, in this event i learned lot of things about Mozilla and its products. I listened a sentence in this event that is “We are here to make better web.”, i had not concentrate on this sentence at that moment because i was new to the Community and i did not know much more about the #Mozilla. After all the they provided to me some goodies like:- Stickers, badges etc, After the event i came to the home and i asked one question to myself “Why they are doing everything free off cost?”. Here i started to search and know more about Mozilla with net and by other resources. After all i was not too serious about the Mozilla. One day i was Facebooking or Googling, i saw a link and that link brought¬†me to the¬†Firefox OS AppDays & MozBoot IIT Bombay 2013¬†page, that event was in Mumbai and i live in Jodhpur and also a Non-Mozillian so i was not getting myself “What to do? What to do?”. I went to one of my friend Asharam Seervi¬†, i told him, “i want attend this event can you join me?” He said what will be in this event i told him about all agenda of the Event. He got ready to go for this event, We came to the Mumbai first ever for this event without any knowing experience about Mumbai. Finally came to the IIT Mumbai with the help of Google Map and Vineel Reddy Pindi¬†, event started with¬†Welcome Note and as according to Agenda. It was Day-Night of event i was listening and observing everything what they are saying. Within the event i learned, how to develop an app for Firefox OS. I was not too good in coding so i was not able to make an app for Firefox OS but i met to the¬†Vineel Reddy Pindi¬†and i said, “Is their way to contribute with Mozilla¬†except coding?”, He said yes, their is lot of ways where you can start contributing, He helped me lot of. I chosen SUMO (Support Mozilla)¬†to contribute with Mozilla and started contributing. After the great event they given us lot of goodies like:- T-shirts, badge, pens etc. We came to the Home with such a great positive or optimistic ideas, and also learned here what exactly means of “Better Web”. Now time to put own self with #Mozilla and had started contributing with

Within these days one i got mail in which mentioned that, “Congratulation your name in Mozilla Credits !” I got exited and told to my friend, “Wow i am in Mozilla:Credits..!” Mozilla:Credts I Shared these moment with my Sir, he congratulated me, with great wishes. One day i got a mail from Rosana Ardila, She Mentioned in that mail Congratulation A wonderful starting with #Mozilla i start contacting with Mozilla Reps, first who is the Dron Rathore¬†and Amit Kumar Thakur,¬†Now time comes to apply for the FSA (Firefox Student Ambassador), i registered for FSA and start FSA’s Activities, applied for Badge after the first step of the activities.

These all are awesome things for me, One day Mozilla announced Names of the all contributors on¬†Mozilla Monument¬†placed at San Francisco. First day i ignored that, because i thought these all are very active contrinutor and i thought these are Reps(Mozila Repersantative), but one day one of my friend (Ram Dayal Vaishnav)¬†sent me picture of¬†Mozilla Monument left bottom and said, “See who is there in 29th line.”, i replied, “Who?” and i start founding in 29th line, and i saw…..

MozillaI was not getting a task, “what to do next?” i said thanks to Ram. I shared that moment with all Mozillians by Social Media and also with Collegians, they all Congratulate me. So finally i connected to the San San Francisco..!!!

“Do those things which you love, not those which makes you very irritated.”

Finally want to say “Do Whatever you want..!!”

Sorry for wasting your time, but it is a true story of A MOZILLIAN.

Thank you….Have a great Day..!!!!!
