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
