hi all , this blog would describe my journey with open source community, Mozilla !!
On jan 25 2015 , I came across an advertisement mentioning about the Hackathon and I rushed from my home to the venue , and i was alone without a team everyone started coding and for me its first time to attend a hackathon , then I met a guy who was in mozilla T-shirt and he is mr. Sujith Reddy then he interacted with me for around 45 minutes and boosted me and later on I was more curious to learn about mozilla and about the communities and sujith explained me in detail and he cleared all my doubts !
then he introduced me to a cool guy Harsha and he taught me the technical stuff and made made me contribute to mozilla !!
Being part of Mozilla Hyderabad Community , I learnt a lot of things which made grow like a plant to tree !
Then i starteed contributing to hyderabad mozilla community by organising and volunteering all the events of mozilla in surroundings of hyderabad , there are few memories which I can share to describe my story.
This event was hosted by Akshay and it was all about Mozilla AppSprint and it was first time for me to make a mobile application and it was executed on firefox flame device and yes it was an awesome moment !
yes !! it was the first event for me to be one of the organisers among six organisers and i was one of the speaker , where i delivered a talk about mozilla .
and after delivering a talk about mozilla it gave me a big boostup to be as a speaker and for the first time for me to deliver a talk for 80 people
Then here comes the Market Place event where it was first time for me to write code on HTML5 and java script where Ram Dayal guided me a lot to execute the code & its anovernight event where many people contributed to open source !!
Then comes the hakathon which was organised by Harsha where he taught us about webmake tools and how to use it and advantages of webmaker tools !
Then comes the most attracted event called Moz Deccan organise by Mozilla Hyderabad Community and this time i was a participant because I was more curious to learn about communities & learnt a lot of things where I developed my self to handle any kind of event to organise and to volunteer !!
