Every plan after execution needs review at its end point. The awareness towards Mozilla and Open web was started in Durgapur from Mozcafe@ bcrec from 13th February, 2013. That event was successful. But to measure the success and growth in contribution towards Mozilla and its products from mozcafe@bcrec, we have hosted a small meet-up named “Durgapur_mozconnect” near Bidhannagar, Durgapur (West Bengal) on 13th April, 2013 from 01:00 p:m to 04:00 p:m.
15 participants including previous contributors (Chandan kumar, Biraj karmakar, Gaurav Kumar, Umesh Agarwal), new contributors (Amit Kumar Thakur, Neeraj Goswami, Mrityunjay Kumar Singh, Souradeep De, Apoorv ashutosh, Shubendu Ghosh) and upcoming Contributors (Avinash Kumar, Shantanu Ghosh, Zubin Tiwari, Abhishek Kumar, Sourav Kumar) from Dr.B.C. Roy Engineering College, Durgapur attended under supervision of Mozilla Reps Shahid Farooqi and One guy from Asansol.
The meet-up started with the introduction of all volunteers specifying their interest and contribution. I basically found many of them are interested or contributing in Mozilla localization, Sumo and Web development. But all of them are interested in FirefoxOS and apps development. We are hoping from the community to get a FirefoxOS Apps day soon in Durgapur. After that i have presented a paper on “How to imply Screen-shot Comparison technique in Mozilla Firefox Localization Quality Analysis.” with the help of the source taken from Fuel Project. The material will be available soon in all mailing list. After listening and sorting out the problems in contribution to localization and sumo, we have formed a team for FirefoxOS video Contest.
This is not the last but with ending we have fixed a Durgapur community Monthly meetup every month (if possible) in our college on 18th April, 2013 from 01:00 p:m to 02:00 p:m to track the progress of contribution in the community.
Thanks to Shahid, Biraj, Umesh, Shubhendu, Apoorv and Souradeep for making the same successful.
