The awesome NSU FSAs were thinking of doing one event where they could do mentoring on SUMO , yes Support Mozilla it is! After 2 weeks planning the event took place at North South University library.
on 3rd March, 2014 the event started sharp at 1 pm in the library. People were divided into small groups for better communication and learnt different types of sumo contribution ways. They also signed up for the FSA program. Our main target was teaching L10n (Localization) (sumo kb) and AOA (Army Of Awesome) .
Zarif took the responsibility to teach AOA as well as doing AOA by himself on that day.
Faria teaching a new FSA sumo kb l10n .
While I was explaining Al-amin how those sumo badges are given away and whom are given away. We also answered few questions on the support forum .
While newbies were busy doing contribution, FSAs also did not waste their time.
WoMoz l10n! I was really amazed to see that newbies completed articles l10n without any break. Later we helped to fix typos.
We have a plan to write articles soon after we do good in this area.
After the sumo worktime we had our lunch at 4pm. Some people are missing due to their class/ exam!
That is how we ended up with our small event. We have planned to do more productive events online+offline both regarding SuMo.
Providing localized support has always been one of the core purposes of SUMO and I personally think SuMo is the best way to start contributing for a newbie and that’s why this areas has been chosen by the FSA team who worked hard to revise the localized kb . A special thanks to the team!
