“Sat-Sri-A-Kal Everyone” with this Dyvik commenced the very first day of MozPunjab.

Dyvik explained about what actually Mozilla is and most precisely cleared the misconception that Mozilla is just a browser. Mozilla mission and vision are made cleared and all the scope of what a student can do to contribute in Mozilla.

Many other products of Mozilla were explained to them. Some of them are:-

  • Firefox
  • Thimble
  • X-ray Goggle
  • Lightbeam
  • App Maker and many other areas were also covered.

Then I explained them about the community and how it works. What is the hierarchy of the FSA program and tried to satisfy the people by answering the most obvious question asked by the newbies, “What is the benefit of joining the Mozilla Community?”

IMG-20160221-WA0019

And the best part while answering this question is that it covered all the doubts of people and at the same time encouraged them to join the community and to contribute. And before the lunch time when I asked the students that how many of you really wanted to contribute in the community there was no single person who didn’t raised his/her hand.

During the Lunch students were coming to us but this time most of them were from non-computer stream and were asking that they want to contribute but they are not a so called computer guy.

So after the Lunch in our next session Dyvik started by explaining what a non-techy person can do and how. Then some fun activities were carried out. Few LOGICAL JOKES were cracked.

Then we asked few question like:

  • What is free basic?
  • What do you mean by digital rights?
  • How Google earn?

Students were explained how is the world of internet works and how we people are converted into products and what are the possible ways of securing the web and our digital rights.

Then we even discussed the common problem faced by the students and all the possible reason that is hampering the productivity of the students.

IMG-20160221-WA0024

We then handover the mike to each and every person who attended the seminar and the response of the student really filled us with joy and then we had few group photograph.

And we moved directly to see the scared martyrdom of the 2 son of Sikh Guru Gobind Singh i.e. FatehGarh Sahib. The first day was day of success but at the end of day we both were tired like as if we completed cross country marathon.

 

DAY 2:-

IMG-20160221-WA0013

The day two welcome us with sweet surprise as more than 50 new attendees where joined. So what we did is divided the group into two groups one of them were sent into lab along with Dyvik and rest were with me in the seminar hall. I briefly revised all about the Mozilla and the reason why everyone should join. Then I carried the session forward by giving them practical demo of X-ray Goggle, Thimble, App-maker, popcorn maker and also explained few basics of how to start writing a blog, how to make few custom changes in a template that are required often.

And side by side queries of the student were solved.

I was informed that I have consumed half of the break time allotted to the student.

Break time..!!!!

Soon after lunch times all students were gathered in the seminar hall itself. We then started few fun activities. They were given chance to come to the front and speak on anything concerned they want to. Few came up with new and exciting ideas that really fascinated me. Swags are given to every of the student who came to the front. Then we even had one who sang a Punjabi song for us. And we then call 20 students who want to be the part of main club team of “Mozilla GGI”.

I was really happy to see the girls coming up with great confidence. We even had group photographs and cheered for everyone.

Around 11:30 we reached the Campus and without wasting much time I went to the seminar hall where the students from different semesters and collage were sitting. I greet them all and a small introductory session was carried. I can see that everyone where excited as much of them were recently joined the community. Few students who were not able to come to the venue from Patiala where with us through hangout. We started talking about the principle reason of arranging such get together as I mentioned earlier most of them were completely new members of Mozilla community and very eager to know about Mozilla.

Untitled

A short presentation was given to them and then their doubts were cleared. We discussed about the various ways one can contribute in Mozilla by Coding, Testing, Writing, Teaching, Helping and Localizing.

We talked on the topic what role can one play to expand the community in Punjab. We came out with ideas like reaching more and more collages and conducting Mozilla Introductory session so that more people can join and learn and can finally be part of Mozilla Community. To establish a geolocation task force in Punjab for that we introduced students with Firefox Stumbler. The feeling of earning more points than the other can be clearly seen in everyone face.

00-9

We even came with the points of strengthening girls in the community so we had discussed with girls in the meetup to interact with more girls and encourage them to join the community and learn as well as teach other.

For the new FSA’s who were frequently facing problems we decided to form a google group where any FSA can put their doubts or ideas to the community. We are also on building a community website and an app.

00-8

We finally took group Photographs and wrapped of the meetup. We will be organizing such meeting every month.

I along with many other student of our university joined the Mozilla community last year in Nov-2014 at that time Mozilla Community Punjab has few contributors doing very well like Sanjeev Soni and Abhishek Thakur, but after completing their degree in the university the Mozilla community starts fading away, students started asking me we have joined Mozilla but what next. I tried to contact with the other mozillan of Punjab but i strongly feel the need of uniting the mozillians and then i put my problem in front of Mrinal Jain and asked help regarding the Community Building in Punjab. There came THE CONTRIBUTION PATHWAY PUNJAB 2015.


1st day  [16-10-2015]


My day started early in the morning at 6:00am with the arrival of Sumantro Mukharjee and Mrinal Jain at the university. They travelled all the nights without sleeping and were looking tired, i was wondering will they able to take the session but they said one Red Bull is enough to make me wake up for another night as well.

I reached at the collage reception at 9:00am and was amazed to see large number of student demanding the participation forms for the event, we set up a registration desk and student started filling.

We even provided a sheet to all where they can write students who have clearly decided in what type of contribution they want to do. Sheet was divided into two half:

  • Technical
  • Non-Technical

And the ratio of students joined technical and non-technical was in ratio 60:40.

Break was announced and everyone was supposed to move out for lunch. But students and faculties are still coming up with question, Sumantro and Mrinal were clearing doubts of all and the curiosity among all was awesome. People are approaching me and saying, “Bro, we seriously want to get in it. Please guide us and my friends were not able to come today they also want such session”. I promised them that every interested one will get all the help and guidance from the Mozilla community.

Break was just of 1 hour and 45 min of which was utilized clearing doubts then I took Sumantro, Mrinal , and a faculty from Chandigarh University to our university restaurant and had lunch. Durring Lunch we were discussing on various matter like need of conducting more such session, Sumantro and Mrinal were happy seeing the hunger of learning and contributing in students but due to lack of propper guidance they are deprived of opportunity. Professor from CU also said he want such session in our university also as not all students were able to come for the event. We completed our lunch and rushed to the seminar hall.

Students were waiting for us in seminar hall. Again they were made cleared that what they will learn in Technical group and in non-technical group. Then FireFox devices were shown to the students. Everyone just loved that. They asked us many question and were very happy to know about the device. Then Sumantro conducted small quiz round and the one who answer the question was prized with swags.

All the students departed, and those who were from other collages were given rooms in hostels. I, Alankrit, Mrinal and Sumantro had lot of discussion regarding the future agenda of the community plan of action and all. We then stumbled and moved to a dhaba and had typical punjabi style food. Getting back to our rooms sumantro and Mrinal showed me pics of their previous event and he also explained various things about the Mozilla India Community, its Hierarchy and way of working. I even played a gesture game which sumantro has made and was truly awesome. I was tired so i went to sleep at 2pm night.


Day 2 [17-10-2015]


The 2nd day of the event started with a bad news that the roads are blocked and no Public transportation is running. Students were calling me and saying that they wont be able to come as the roads are completely blocked. Still few students manage themselves to come for the event but they also said that it was risky.

The students were in labs by 11:00 and within no time Sumantro and Mrinal arrived. Mrinal started clearing the doubts of the students and then Sumantro introduced students about the GitHub and every students made their own GitHub account. Sumantro then explained students how they can make small application in html. Then the students whose projects were ready or about to be completed made their developer account. Students were really happy and proud of themselves.
