Mozilla Awareness at Govt. Polytechnic Ranchi

Hello all, This is our first Mozilla event at Government Polytechnic Ranchi.

So, for few months I was planning to target some Government colleges for Mozilla event and for this I created list of Government colleges that I was supposed to target for Mozilla event and GP Ranchi was one of them.

How I approached the college.

Approaching the college was not easy for me as I was alone for the time and it was bit difficult for me, but I still managed.  I looked for the college contact on Internet as I was unable to get the proper contacts and information. I went to the college during the 2nd week of December 2017 and as the college Principal was not their the time when I reached the college, I had to wait for 2 and a half hour to meet with him. After Principal came I went to meet with him. I first introduced myself like what things I do and Why I want to organize event in the college and after the discussion. Sir asked me to mail the event time and details to the Email Id.

Request to organize the event

After I reached home I drafted an email request for organizing the Mozilla event at College. As the College was closed during winter vacation , I didn’t got any response from the college. On January 2018 25th I  got call from the College Principal and asked me to meet and fix the date for the event.

Meeting for Mozilla Event

I and Prateek went to meet with college Principal again for the Mozilla event and he introduced us to  the Training and Placement in-charge of the college and asked us to get in touch with him for further Mozilla event. We went to see the class room where we were supposed to conduct the event and also let him knew things which we will need form the college during the event as the class room was smart class we didn’t had any problem.

Sent Notice to College

After fixing the date I sent the notice and poster to the college for event and also sent the agenda of the event.

I, Prateek and new contributors Saket and Badal went for the event. We had a great welcome by the student and teachers. I started with with

  • My Introduction
  • Introduce about Mozilla
  • What is Opensource
  • About Mozilla Communities
  • How Mozilla Jharkhand Community came
  • Mozilla Products and Mozilla Projects
  • Talked about Mozilla QA
  • How to contribute to Mozilla QA

After this Prateek, Saket and Badal introduced the student to different projects of Mozilla, Aframe, Rust, WebCompat, L10n. And during the event we also distributed swags to the student, after this we had our QA session where student asked lots of questions and we helped student to clear all their doubts and this is one of the reason why student are requesting for another Mozilla event where they can know how to contribute to the projects and we can guide theme during the contributing process.

This was the another college in which I organized the event and I was really very happy as the student also showed interest towards the event and soon we will be having our next event in the college.
