Yes,this is the day I first took part in one of the active events of Mozilla BD – WebMaker Party 2013
Let me tell you,I first met all the mozillians on the occasion of mozilla’s 15 year celebration at Star,Kabab.
At first it was pretty hard to set all pcs with working internet but our Ashickur Rahman Noor bro managed it with perfection! 😀
Students started coming sharp at 1.00,where we saw both male and female students of class ranging class6 to A-levels.
After they were done taking seats Noor bro started his presentation which was made using POPCORNMAKER.
He started explaining the open source and following that he started the original Maker Party.He discussed the main three parts of the Web Maker which were:
Some of the students had some questions which I am mentioning with answers we gave:
-will mozilla pay me for this?
Noor Bro: No,It’s actually a volunteeary type work where Mozilla is a non-profit type organization.None of us here gets paid but we have gathered a lots of knowledge and experiences from it.
-can’t I have copyright thingy on my makes?
Noor Bro:no,you can’t
Me:But the website will show the core/main piece of the make beside the remix ones,from where everyone will be able to see who made it first and who remixed it.
-why will others be able to remix my makes?
Noor Bro:that’s why it’s open source!You can use others code to build up a new thing!
Following that I,Tanha Islam started talking about Popcorn Maker,I explained those students how to work on that and why do we need to use that.
Some of them started to make some popcorn videos just before I ended my discussion.They seemed so interested working on that!!
After that Rifaz started explaining the Thimble part where he discussed some basic stuffs of HTML and CSS,He asked one of the students to stand up and tell his favorite car which was Lamborghini aventador!He helped Rifaz to make one thimble with that!
When Rifaz was done,me and Noor bro gave a brief of X-ray Googles.
After that students were given some time to make the web,they did a great job.

After guys were gone they left a funny thing for us(popcorn video) which link I don’t have because girls refreshed the page to make a new one THIS ONE
I still have a photo of what boys made 😛
When everything was done students were shown the MaKey MaKey
Where you one could play Mario game not with keyboards,but with Bananas! Seems interesting!I played it as well and it was really fun!
That is how the AWESOME day ended finishing up the Maker Party on the last day announced by Mozilla.
It was really a good experience for me 🙂
Mozilla and Mozillians ROCK!
