Fennec Launch – Hindi India

Have you used Firefox for Android in Hindi if not then please do use it because it has been localized by awesome hi_IN l10n contributors. Recently after successful localization of Firefox for Android in different languages we decided to officially launch it.

So it was organized in Pune with the support of C-DAC. For this event we invited many people from different areas so that we can know the impact of localization on our community and about the quality of the localized products. We had a great discussion with many experienced people.

Well I think pictures can better explain about the event than words. So here we go..!

Mozilla Festival 2014

Hey everyone, I am back with my blog post. Don’t worry it wont be that long to read.

So this time it was something special. It was time for Mozilla Festival 2014. Getting selected for this big and awesome event is its self an honour but going to the event in real was really awesome.

The Mozilla Festival is a yearly celebration that brings together hundreds of passionate people to explore the frontiers of the open web. We mash developers, designers, and big thinkers together to make things that can change the world.

This was my first international trip, So was very excited and bit nervous about how will I manage things because it was time to go London 🙂 Getting in London was really exciting after having a 20 min Q/A round with the Immigration Officer.

So lets check out each day activities:

One the first day we went to Mozilla Office which was really a cool place to work. But nervousness was always accompanying me because I take time to talk and there were so many awesome people to talk to. Still I managed to talk to few of them 🙂

Special thanks to Christos Bacharakisfor helping me to get some Vej food on the first day. 🙂

So now it was time to get ready for the real MozFest14. On the second day when I went to the venue ” Ravensbourne ” and saw  so many people i started thinking “man where i stand!!” then on the next moment I realized that “yes i stand somewhere that’s why i am here”.

This time I participated in Hive Learning Network and worked with them for two days. My main area of interest was to reduce the overall budget requirement for Hive events. For that Julia and My self sat for discussion and we really got good results.

I had great time to help with a booth at Maker party where we asked participants to make cool stuffs with paper and colour.
