Mozilla 15th Celebration

Mozilla 15th Celebrations at Allahabad on 31st March 2013



A long back, I have planned to celebrate Mozilla 15th Anniversary at Allahabad. Following is the URL of the event page.

Event Page:     https://reps.mozilla.org/e/mozcelebs15/

There were several objectives/reasons to host this event at Allahabad. The major objectives behind it to host this event at Allahabad are to "Spread Mission and Objectives of various Mozilla Projects", "Building a Mozilla community", "Starting activities at least in 5 colleges of the city", and "Recruitment of new contributors  and volunteers".

It was a great occasion to celebrate 15th year of Mozilla in my home town Allahabad.

We hosted our event in a restaurant "Friends Forever" in Civil Lines which is situated in most posh area of the city. About 30 attendees turned up to celebrate the event. We started our event at 11:30 AM sharp with a brief introduction about Mozilla and its initiatives. I have given a talk on Mozilla Mission and its products like Firefox OS, Firefox browser, Thunderbird etc. I also thrown light on other projects like localization, NeMo, SUMO and Webmaker etc. I also talked about WebFWD project for entrepreneur. Attendees  were enthusiastic and keen to know "How to contribute in Mozilla projects" and How to become part of such an awesome community. Attendees enjoyed delicious snacks and cold coffee during the talk

Chocolate Cake: Mozilla 15th Cake :)



The Cake was cut by our chief guest of the event 'Ms. Sania' who is the youngest Mozillian of Allahabad community :)


We hosted a Quiz competition right after cutting the cake. In quiz, the questions were asked on FOSS and related to Mozilla which includes identification of various logos. Eleven attendees participated in the quiz, top five attendees got the Firefox OS T-Shirt.
The winners are Ravi Kumar, Mushahid, Shahid Akhtar, Rahul Mishra, and Chandan



We planned for the regular community meetup in Allahabad and how to start contribution in several Mozilla  projects.
We all then gathered for a group photograph which is the witness of Mozilla 15th celebration and very first community meetup at Allahabad.

Thanks to Mozilla and all attendees for a wonderful organization of such a very successful event.

I thanks and wish to all the committed contributors identified in this event.

Thanks & Regards
