We have successfully organized an awesome Mozilla Maker’s party at Jai Narain Institute of Technology, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh India. The prime objective of this Maker Party is to teach students about Web Literacy and its vital role in Open Web. The event was organized by our passionate Mozilla Community Bhopal. My sincere thanks to JNCT college administration for supporting us in our mission towards building a better web.
Due to overwhelming response from student , we have decided to split audience in two computer labs, I have started my session with an Introduction to Mozilla and Its projects, Contributors program like Mozilla Student Ambassador, Mozilla Reps and other contribution opportunities. Participants were getting enthusiastic about learning new projects. So we introduced them with our awesome project webmaker.
Arpit Singhal, Mrinal Jain, Chandan Baba and Rahul Talreja,Shiva Goyal did an awesome job by introducing Hands On sessions on Appmaker, Popcorn and Thimble Participants were feeling excited when they created their very first app.
How can I forget my best part, L10n, I have also shown some hands on to participants on L10n, They have translated some strings on Pootle which is an awesome experience for all of them.
We has a very productive discussion with Director of college, to establish a Firefox Student Club in college which serves as platform for students to showcase their skills and also a destination to enroll new sustainable contributors.
Being a mentor for Bhopal community, I must appreciate Vaibhav Bajaj, Divya and Anju for their active contribution in engaging community.
