I was about to reach the location i.e. Gaurav Tower in Jaipur(very nice place to hangout) and was getting pretty excited to meet open source enthusiasts for the first time. Firefox Student Ambassadors from all over the Rajasthan were to meet at McDonald’s @GT. As I reached the venue I introduced myself and people started sharing their contributions. The event started at 09:30 AM. There were 10 people present there-
- Tushar Arora : FSA, SUMO, Webmaker, AOA
- Mukul Taneja
- Osho Parth : FSA, Firefox OS App Development
- Trishul Goel : FSA, Add-ons
- Raj Suthar : SUMO, Webmaker, l10n
- Prachi Jain : FSA
- Ashish Seervi : FSA, Webmaker, Add-ons
- Rishi Pariyani
- Lavish Aggarwal : FSA, SUMO, AOA
- Varun Kaushik : FSA, SUMO, Webmaker, AOA
There were some new members who were not aware of the Mozilla Community and were not aware of what to do and how to start contributions. We asked them to open up and share their ideas. Meghraj Suthar introduced everyone to the FSA program:
Then we started discussing about SUMO, how to get involved in SUMO for helping other users of mozilla:
- Army Of Awesome
- Answer questions in Support Forum
- Write help articles
- Translate help to your Languages
We were glad to have Varun Kaushik with us in this meeting as he was in First position of Top Contributors of Last Week in Army of Awesome, we all congratulated him for this great work in SUMO.
Then we planned and made a list for all the upcoming events. We also discussed about the institutes and organizations in Jaipur where we can organize Mozilla events.
After deciding events and colleges we moved ahead by discussing on Mozilla and its Mission, Firefox and Firefox OS. Everyone was very excited in contributing to Firefox OS by creating an app for it. So all of them were informed about App of the Month Contest and started discussing how to take part in that contest.
Every one was also informed how to make an app for Firefox OS and procedure to submit app on store. The basic idea was given about the languages which will be used for developing apps.
Now there was swag distribution 🙂 Thanks to our Reps Ram Dayal and Dron Rathore for arranging SWAGS in a short duration of time.
In the meanwhile everyone had their burgers and cold-drinks.
