This was my dream event. 😀 You know why? All these days, I used to attend Webmaker parties organised in other Firefox Clubs. But, for the first time we organized it in our Club. 🙂 Also this is our first Mozilla event in our club. 😀
Our department had a Technical fest “iRis“, we thought this would be the right time to start our club and conduct our first event. Just few days before our event we had a session on Bugzilla and FSA meet-up @MozSpaceBLR. I raised this topic to discuss with them regarding the planning and the executing of this event. They all pitched in few ideas to get started with our event.
I mailed the plan of our event to Shreyas Narayana Kutty (@dunebuggie) and invited him to come down here and talk about Mozilla mission, How to contribute to mozilla?, webmaker tools, webmaker application on smartphone along with us. Sheyas without thinking anything, he just said YES, he would love to come here and take up this session.
As soon as he confirmed that he would come and take up this session we started to create a hype in our college by sharing the “Coming Soon…” poster across social medias. Students became very curious to know more about this since this was the first mozilla event in our college and the poster also contained the logo of Firefox and Mozilla Communities.
After few days we released the Final poster of the event which contained all the details regarding the event.
Many students were bit confused since they didn’t knew about Webmaker tools. They started to ask us whether we have arranged a DJ to this party? 😀 😀 😀
I shared a video which I made few weeks before through PopcornMaker and also a screenshot of a webpage which I modified through X-ray Goggles. This was also our 2nd version of teaser to the event.
On 30th March, 2015.
Shreyas along with his friend shivika arrived at our college by 1.30 p.m. We started our session by 2.00 p.m. Shreyas spoke about Mozilla mission, How to contribute to Mozilla ? and about webmaker tools. He also showed them the demo of these Webmaker tools. He gave them a theme – ICC Cricket World Cup based on that students started to work on it. We gave them 60 minutes of time to complete there work. After this Shivika spoke about “WoMoz” to the students.
Since this was the first time students were working on webmaker tools, they did quite well. We appreciated them by giving Firefox and Webmaker Stickers. YaY! They loved these awesome stickers.
At last but not the least, I would like to thank Shreyas and his co-spreaker Shivika for helping us in organizing this event. Also, My Mozilla Bangalore Community (@MozSpaceBLR) for all kind support. 🙂
We would be coming up with more and more events like this in up-coming days!
