Software testing and quality management Task Force

Hello guys,

I would like to share my experience of joining my First Task Force i.e., Software testing and quality management Task Force. I was looking to do something new and interesting. On a day i came to know about this task force i thought its for me. ūüėÄ

I just went through the Wiki page and gathered the information about the work, eligibility, joining n members in it. The joining was simple, i just took privilege to write to the owner of the task force (Chandrakant Dhutadmal) and wrote my experiences and works in it on 8th October 2015. As he found me eligible and worthy he added my name to the contributors list on the wiki page and mailed me the confirmation on the same day.

At the end i’d like to thank Chandrakant sir to find me fit in his opinion and giving me opportunity to be associated with Software testing and quality Task Force.

FxCamp Oriental

Hello guys, this post is about the Pilot Campaign organised in Oriental College of Technology on 17/10/2015 to enhance Firefox in Hindi downloads.

The campaign was scheduled to be done on 16th of October but due to some technical problems we had to delay, so we managed to change the date and got the date as 17th October.

Due to dushera holidays at that time the strength was too low but we managed to cover as many as people from Computer Science department and we all managed to download and install Firefox in Hindi in all the Computers of the lab.

There were about 20 attendees and we managed to download and install Firefox in Hindi and also we made firefox as default browser in the whole lab.

Since the attendees were new to Mozilla, i took a small session on Mozilla and its mission and also about its projects and contribution areas in Mozilla’s Projects. We (me and Kalpit) also demonstrated ”Army of Awesome” and localisation (l10n). Also we recruited 20 firefox Student ambassador.

We were about to do the campaign again but again due to some circumstances we didn’t got the permission from the college management. Although the campaign is over but I’ll embed this in my next event for sure.

Sorry Umesh sir i couldn’t wear the T-shirt in the Campaign as swags didn’t reach on time. ?

This blog post is about the event¬†conducted at¬†Oriental College of Technology, Bhopal, on 3rd October 2015. On 2nd October’s night i couldn’t sleep for the whole night as there was an event on the next day and i was the person who was responsible to take care of everything, i took the banners, ID cards of the club members and all the necessary things and reached the college around 8.45, i met all the club members and ask them to prepare the labs by¬†¬†installing and testing simulator in firefox (which is needed for app testing) on each computer. I then went to receive the Speaker cum RePs (Mr Rahul Talreja and Mr Vaibhav Bajaj) with Vidit Sharma and Satyadeep on behalf of the Oriental family, at the same time my team was arranging everything needed to be done so as to proceed with the event.

They were told about the contribution areas like:

  • Webmaker
  • Localization
  • Geo Stumbling
  • SuMo
  • Marketplace
  • Bugzilla, etc

Since i need to make all the arrangements i moved out of the hall, and checked the whole arrangements. When i returned back it was almost the end of the session, I asked the Mozilla team to come to take the lunch. When we came out of the hall there was a fabulous Rangoli of the Firefox logo made by Aayushi Saxena and Mitali Kawale, we had a group photograph with all the attendees.

Then we proceed to the canteen for the lunch with the Mozilla team and the club members and had a great lunch discussing the future plans of the club.

After the lunch students were asked to gather in the labs, we then went to the labs and distributed ourselves as we had got three labs. The main agenda in the labs was App Development for Firefox OS, we started with Webmaker, and made the students learn about Thimble, X-ray goggles, etc, and made the register themselves on webmaker.org.

The next thing was app development for FxOS, in the 3 labs I, Vaibhav sir, Rahul sir, Vidit, and Satyadeep and all the club members got distributed in the labs to see everything goes well. I, Vaibhav sir and Rahul sir started with the session of App Development in all the three labs respectively, by the help of HTML, CSS and Javascript. Due to shortage of time, we did not provide the students with the time to make their apps, we asked them to try it at home, and if they get any issue with that they may contact us.

finally we recruited Firefox Student  Ambassadors by making them signup on fsa.mozilla.org, about 100+ students signup for being the member of firefox student Ambassador. The time was up, we wind up with all the stuff and then i took the RePs to meet the director and then she came out with us and we had a group photograph.
