A day with SUMO stars

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.

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!

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!
