Mozilla Bangladesh Task Force Meetup 2014

Mozilla Bangladesh recently organized an event named “Mozilla Bangladesh Task Force Meetup and 2014 planning”. Mozilla Bangladesh community has grown 10 times in last couple of years. To better organize the community MozBD formed Task Force based on projects. This event was the first formal meetup and to plan 2014 and many other activities.

On Saturday, 22nd February, 2014, the day long event took place and the venue was Hotel 71.
I reached on the spot with excitement because on the day we were about to plan awesome events for 2014. I was just memorizing the events I planned/we some mozillians planned. I was making it sure that no event idea should be missed.

Around 10.00 am the main event started with an ice-breaking session, where each of the mozillian had to say their name and do something funny like hand waving, face making etc. After that our main agenda started(Moz Foundation 2014 Goals)

Some core points we had discussions on  were: Australis Launch, Firefox OS, FxOS apps workshop in universities etc. During the discussions we were served with Morning tea and biscuits. Following this, we had S.W.O.T analysis. Each task force were given around one hour to devide into groups and have discussion. This analysis has a great impact on our future activities. After the analysis we wrote points in stickies and later some volunteers of specific TF wrote them on the ethar and the main discussion started. All the TF explained their priority points while other TF gave suggestions/info/asked questions.

We had lunch after finishing the session. we went to 19th floor to have yummy lunch. I couldn’t eat much but some enjoyed the food very much.

Later, we went to the terrace and got MozBD teeshirts. Everyone seemed excited to have brand new tee shirt and later we had fun captures and group photos.

The second half started with the presentation “Million Mozillians” by Mahay Alam Khan. We had a talk on MozStumbler,MozillaBD blog,website,gave new ideas. Later, we discussed 2014 road map/event plans. It was a pretty interactive session where I gave some inputs(yes,those memorized events).Other mozillians also suggested event types at new locations.

Wrapping up everything we did some photo sessions along with new mozillians,TF members, reps and WoMoz. Had a very qualityful day with some bainstorming ideas and thoughts to keep up our good work through contribution towards Mozilla.

Hackjam with NSUFSA,NSUWF,NSUEC

After 1 month planning, the day came today! Exams and advising just ended last week, so our target was to do webmaker on holidays. This time we just expanded ourselves with 2 more clubs named NSU wireless Forum (deals with all the tech related events, teaches people about tech) and English Club. We have a good relation with these two clubs so we were expecting a good start with our university mates and our expectation came to reality today.

Early in the morning freezing with cool breeze me and my sister arrived at North South University, in half an hour all of our FSAs reached and the room was opened for us. While fixing internet and stuffs people started coming.

People seemed so excited about the event. Most of them brought laptops with internet(we had internet modems as well as NSU WIFI).

Our fellow NSUFSA mate Rashik Ishrak Nahian welcomed everyone warmly and started talking about Mozilla. He covered contribution ways. I personally loved his slides a lot !

And then the core webmaker part was started by our own Kazi Rokib Ahmed(NSU Wireless forum Vice president, member of Eng club & FSA). He explained the basic steps of HTML & CSS to people. Most of them did not know how HTML and CSS works. They seemed damn interested to learn. Some of them asked some question as well while learning.

Following him, our awesome president of Wireless Forum Mursalin Kabir started taking his session. He took his session on X-Ray Goggles. The way he interacted with people was really good! Everyone enjoyed his session!

After having yummy food, we had Mozquiz of 10 questions which were set by our fellow NSUFSA Tuhin Sahir. Then we got our awesome winners who were given out cool swags of Mozilla. They seemed really happy to get some!

We got 11 new contributors from this event. Everyone loved the swags which were given away during the event. Mozilla Badge was popular and the webmaker stickers as well!
