Community Building in Punjab -- 8th December- 2013


Here’s the first time community building event organized in Punjab. A big thanx to Sujith Reddy (Organizer) & Komal Gandhi (Rep-attendee) to support us & took initiative to build a community in Punjab.
                Recently, We organized number of webmaker parties in colleges. In which we had been succeeded in spreading the awareness about Mozilla. But on the contrary part we think it’s also our duty now to get contributors for Mozilla.
                Then we all were thinking that what should we do to expand the ratio of mozillian in our region. Then sujith suggested us to build a community in our region (Punjab).


                8th  December :- That was the day on which there was first time in punjab a mozilla community was going to be build. Then we all gathered at food plaza restaurant, the venue in Fatehgarh sahib. At 11:00 am sharp we started the event with introduction of individually of all community members.


                Then sujith gave small task to all i.e to write your views on sticky notes regarding what you think/what do you mean by building a community in Punjab. We all completed this task with coffee & French fries.& were doing discussion on each other’s opinion about community building in Punjab.
                Then sujith took a long session in which he explained following things in detail:-
·         Prime Motive to build a community in Punjab.
·         Our roles in a community.
·         How to get involved in Mozilla
·         DOs & DON’Ts
   Then a quick session given by me in which I was telling about my experience as a contributor of SUMO & about the recent activities of Mozilla, what I (sajeev) & mohit had done now yet in our region, then after the brief introduction about Mozilla products & webmaker tools, we felt appetite.
   Then we proceed to having lunch , after then we continued the event again, then Sujith & Komal shared their experience of mozilla Summit & as well as we discussed some topics like Localization, WebFwd etc…
                And I personally hats off to Sujith, that the way he explained each & every thing very easily to all & sought out everybody’s query.
                At the end we had a Mozilla cake to celebrate to celebrate the community building in punjab.
Punjab community:- I’m glad to say that as of now we already have Regional Marketing Ambassadors & SUMO contributors in our community….its a good beginning J J


MozFest at Shri Guru Granth Sahib World University...7th Dcember-2013

Hii Mozillians,,

       At the end of first week of month December, we have two interesting & big events in Punjab province. On the 7th Dec. there was Mozfest event at Shri Guru Granth Sahib World University. It was an event to spread the information about mozilla’s products & activities. The Prime motive of this event is to grab more people to get involved in Mozilla. Because after analysis we came to know as compare to other regions of india, in Punjab there are very less people who know about this biggest Open Source Community. So our agenda is to expand the network of Mozilla in Punjab and this event on 7th December is all about it.

                 Rahul Bains as a marketing ambassador helped us so much in doing all arrangements… 
                So at 10:30 we started the event by Sujith reddy & Komal Gandhi. For the event we have m-tech & MCA students which is good sign for us.

  *  Then Sujith handling the stage very smartly, as Punjab is a new place for him, so he checked the audience behaviour & their knowledge that what they already know about Mozilla & Open source products. On basis of response from students, he proceeded with the introduction of Mozilla & its products. He explained the way very easily that how to get involved in Mozilla & also gave live demo to contribute in SUMO. Then he moved to Firefox O.S introduction.

                * After his impressive session Komal handled the stage with introducing WoMoz among students. She emphasized on women power in Mozilla. She also gave such examples like Mitchel Baker, which motivates feminine audience to take step to be a part of mozilla & doing contributions for Mozilla.
                And at last, It had been a great event & we also got number of good tech geeks for the community building event on next day….
