Firefox Student Ambassador Program @hema :

Image

she began the most awaited session for new mozillans i.e Firefox Student Ambassador and Mozilla Reps . Many students were interested in joining Mozilla as FSA…Have given brief & Clear explaination by Hema ji !

WoMoz @hema :

Image

Later ! Women in Mozilla! The crowd cheered when Hema told them what WoMoz stands for. It was really nice to see all the girls get really enthusiastic!She asked them many questions like why aren’t women more involved in Open Source, Why does it take this much time for even a small percentage of increase in number of female contributors. All this gave rise to many new ideas and thoughts by the students.

How to contribute towards Open Source @Ajay :

Ajay’s seemless contribution towards open-source development raised much more awareness amongst ambitious volunteers . ‘Learn and Implement’ was the sucess-key line behind his talks regarding the open-source .

Image

Support Mozilla (SuMo) @Ajay :

Later ajay got an, opportunity to speak on Mozilla’s SuMo project i.e Support Mozilla. Ajay explained new Firefox enthusiasts on how can they contribute right now by being a part of SuMo project.

——THE END—-

“Thank you Hema & Ajay team for your ineffable guidance and being there for us whenever we needed the most.”

 Finally, all day long session on Firefox came to an end. Not actually an end, it gave a new beginning to many youngsters who are associated with Mozilla or wish to join in. All Mozillians left with tons of information , some new ideas , future road maps and cherishable memories.

First Pop Up Meet… FIREFOX CLUB #bies#bala !

On last sunday, I and my buddies were sitting and discussing on various options to initiate something enthralling. We kept on discussing on various topics and finally ended up on coming up with FIREFOX CLUB at BIES,Warangal. Last year I attended  many Mozilla Events at  JITS & NIT-Warangal.. college. Especially #hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) Event held at NIT-warangal, Organised by Warangal Reps (Hema Bhanu ,Ajay Kumar Jogawath, Sudheesh Singanamalla, Meraj Imran) they speaked well about the Mozilla scopes & they enlighted my thoughts towards contributing to Mozilla ! Later had some idea regarding establishing of club in my campus #bies,Warangal !

We decided to contact one of the ReMo Hema , Ajay & Meraj, later planned a POP UP MEET at  Asian Mall,hanamkonda, Wgl on 23rd feb 2014. We didn’t knew it was so easy…

Image(L to R : Sandeep,Vijay, Me, Ajay, Bhargav, Hemanth, Venkat & Sharan)

I called up few interested friends and we rushed to Asian Mall by 4.30pm. Ajay was already there at mall making his plans for the meet…But, apart from that meet we felt happy as well as sad, because hema had urgent work so not joined with us, we missed her & fun of her ! But Ajay & co , given enough boosting & fun , thanks for that !

Image

Later he started giving us brief detail regarding FSA program, Firefox Goals, How to build a successful Firefox Community and amazing facts about Mozilla Community.
It was a great learning experience. We got all our doubts cleared. Also we got  a broader vision about MOZILLA and on how to set up Firefox Club.

Image

Thank you Ajay. We will give in our best to build an active Firefox Club at BIES WARANGAL..

Special thanks to Sharan, Bhargav & Hemanth !

& heartly thanks to my buddies ( Sandeep , Vijay & venkat )…
