Mozilla Awareness day at Oriental College of Technology
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.
The team included:
- Aditya Shah (club lead)
- Surbhi Girdhani (womoz)
- Kalpit Muley (SuMo Contributor)
- Raj Nilayam (Localization)
- Karan Tamrakar
- Aman Singh Rajpoot
- Ankita Dongre (Anchor for the event)
The event was started at sharp 11 O’clock by welcoming Mozilla reps Rahul Talreja and Vaibhav Bajaj by a bouquet and lightning of the lamp, also there was a saraswati vandana to make the event more successful.
The mic was then handed over to Rahul sir who introduced himself and the whole Mozilla team and appreciated the club for its work. The session started with the introduction of the Mozilla then continued with its products to the other open source projects.
They were told about the contribution areas like:
- Geo Stumbling
- 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.
Then we told them about the etherpad (real-time notepad) concept. The students anonymous interest when we told the advantages of etherpad.
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.
