First Meetup FxClub Oriental

Hey all,
This blog post is about our Meetup, held at Oriental College of Technology, Bhopal, India. Me along with my club member Surbhi Girdhani, organised this Meetup in a better way. As per the theme we targeted the Students that were not aware of Mozilla and its mission and and the contribution areas in it and we finally did our best to deliver our knowledge about Mozilla to the attendees. we had students of 2nd and 3rd year CS/IT engineering.  Meetup started at 10:00 AM where me (Aditya Shah) started with introduction to Mozilla Community followed by the WoMoz by Surbhi Girdhani.

We worked hard to get the permission from the HOD Rupali Mam (IT department, OCT) then from the Director Dr. Kavita Burse (Oriental College of Technology, Bhopal). Then we made arrangements like WiFi and other services like projector and all. Since we didn’t had the swags so i asked the local Rep ( Mr. Vaibhav Bajaj) and he provided me with the swags for my event. Also Mr. Rahul Talreja and Mr. Vaibhav Bajaj helped a lot to clear out several things to be told into the meetup and given several links to help us.

Meetup started at sharp 10′ in the morning with the introduction about Mozilla followed by the contribution in different parts like

  • FxOs
  • Webmaker
  • Localization
  • Army of Awesome
  • Mozilla Stumbler
  • Bugzilla

Then i demonstrated each of them on my device to get them started with the contribution in these projects. I also made them know about the benefits of getting involved with Mozilla in its mission by making them know about the FSA program and making them registered as the members of Firefox Student Ambassadors. Also i let them know about the Firefox Club which is there in the college so that they may also join it and help contributing more efficiently.

After the main session we had a question answer session where I cleared every doubts of the attendees and distributed the swags between them. 🙂

Atlast i would like to thank and congratulate my Club Members to handle this event in a better way and hope to organize such events and some more bigger events again and again to promote awareness about Mozilla and other open source Projects. Also we are planning to have a session on HTML App development to build and contribute in making FxOs apps. 🙂

MozMeet

On Sunday, 9/August/2015 it was a pleasent morning. I with Rahul Talreja hosted an event, i.e., MozCoffee. At around 12 many FSA’s from all over the bhopal met at the venue, Balaji Tower, MP nagar, Bhopal and had a great session delivered by Mr. Rahul Talreja (Rep, Mozilla).

We had a great discussion about the contribution areas in mozilla including Localization, twitter handle, webmaker and more. He also detailed us with the heirarchy of being into the community, like how to become FSA, Mozillian, Rep, council, etc also what are the responsibilities of the same.

The session was a two hours long session about the contribution in open source and how can a person be linked to a community and what are the advantages of the same.

Atlast we concluded by thanking Rahul sir for his time and making us aware about Mozilla’s mission and how can we contribute to it, and what are the benifits of it. Then we had a group photograph attached below 😀

India wants open Web – NetNeutrality

“We have 11 days left to fight anti‪ #‎net‬neutrality..
Here’s what you can do.
1. Sign this petition over at https://www.change.org/p/rsprasad-trai-don-t-allow-differential-pricing-of-services-let-consumers-choose-how-they-want-to-use-internet-netneutrality and share it with your friends.
2. Write directly to TRAI at “[email protected]”.
You can write what you like – but you could have words that say something like
Dear TRAI,
I am writing to express my concern against the actions that telecom carriers are taking against Net Neutrality. Zero Rating Apps are one of these neutrality-breaking moves.
I believe the internet is a vital resource – if telecom operators can determine which apps I use for free and which I cannot, because of their secret backroom deals – this creates an environment that is deeply anti-competitive and deeply anti-consumer.
India is an inclusive country, and we cannot have such elitist structures on the internet. We have to allow the open internet, where consumers and entrepreneurs can be free to market and use any and all apps, without the burden of knowing which apps have free bandwidth pre-paid and which don’t.
I am writing to ask you to demand net neutrality from telcos and specifically disallow Zero Rating Apps from all Internet Service Providers
Regards,
{Your Name}
3. Write to the management at Google and Twitter to get them off any and all Zero Rating apps, including Airtel, so that they don’t encourage rapacious telcos.
4. If you’re part of an industry organisation like FICCI, CII, Assocham, IMC or others, get them to lobby on behalf of consumers and entrepreneurs around India. Ask them to put forward a simple message – yes to net neutrality and no to zero rating apps.
5. Spread this message by sharing this piece on LinkedIn, and ironically on the culprits Facebook, Twitter & Google Plus. Let’s get all their members to see how evil their apparently-friendly social networks can be.
6. Get this message to your MP, and /or to Ravi Shankar Prasad or Prime Minister Modi. Make sure they know you care deeply about net neutrality and get them to legislate that neutrality-breaking activites cannot be allowed in India.
7. If any of you are members of the press, traditional or digital, feel free to re-post this entire article on your site or media vehicle, with attribution and without any significant changes. You don’t need any further permission from me.”
