Mozcafe Jaipur :)

So, Finally was the day when  all Mozilla Volunteers of Mozilla Community Rajasthan met. It was good to meet all awesome contributors. The event  started at 9:30 A.M. at Mc-Donald’s at Gaurav Tower, Jaipur. We met there and a not so formal introduction round took place. Event was attended by 10 awesome contributors:
  1. Lavish Aggarwal : FSA, SUMO, AOA
  2. Mukul Taneja
  3. Osho Parth : FSA, Fx OS App Dev , Community Building , Webmaker
  4. Trishul Goel : FSA, Add-ons
  5. Raj Suthar : SUMO, Webmaker, l10n
  6. Prachi Jain : FSA
  7. Ashish Seervi : FSA, Webmaker, Add-ons
  8. Rishi Pariyani
  9. Tushar Arora : FSA, SUMO, Webmaker, AOA
  10. Varun Kaushik : FSA, SUMO, Webmaker Mentor, AOA, WebFWD, l10n
There were some new curious people who were not aware about the Mozilla Project and the different areas of contribution The session was started by Meghraj Suthar, introducing about Firefox Student Ambassador Programs and all the activities that an  FSA must do to start his/her contribution.


Then we started an informal discussion about SUMO, areas of contribution in it, and how to help other people:
  • Army Of Awesome
  • Answer questions in Support Forum
  • Writing help articles
  • Translate articles to your Local Languages

Varun  told people on how to contribute using Twitter and how to answer questions in the Support Forum. A live demo of Army of Awesome and Support Forum was shown by varun.


Then the topics related to the contribution verticals , how to get involved with Mozilla mission and how to bring the idea of a open virtual world to reality were explained by me and Trishul Goel. Thereafter we planned and made a list for all upcoming events with respective colleges of Jaipur where we can organize events.

After deciding about the events and colleges we move ahead to discuss on Mozilla and its Mission, Firefox and Firefox OS. All were very excited in making Firefox OS  apps. An informal discussion took place about the App of the Month Contest and getting started with Firefox OS Apps.

A big Thanks to the only active Rep of our community –  Ram Dayal  for arranging SWAGS in very short time.
