Last Week only I Finished the Firefox Student Ambassador Program in Thiruvannamalai. So I want to meet the new Contributors and Fellow them so they can Improve the Knowledge and Technical Skills in FreeSoftware Technology. But I Dont made the Meetup, the Student or NewContributors itself asked to me like ” Please Adam bro make nextmeetup to know more about Freesoftware and mozilla”. So I think that they are More Interested to  Learn more new things, why cant I Sacrifice my Sunday’s with them. Its not about Sacrificing, its Sharing the Knowledge with them and Also Improving the Speaking skills or Leadership Skills with them. So I Invited 2volunteers(“Thamarai & Mugunthan”) from FSFTN for Helping me in the Meetup, so they can explain more than me.

And the Meetup Poster was Created & Designed  by the NewContributors only

He Talk about lot of things. He Just Covered Freedoms of Freesoftware, Who invented GNU/Linux, Why We Going to Freesoftware instead of Properitary Softwares, Freesoftware Licenses like GPL, Creative Commons, He just Clearly Explain how a CommunityMay be, what are the activities can be run in a Community, what are the Cause and effect of community by a normal people.

I Just done a slides a Year Before for Freesoftware, So here is the Slides for that

Women In Free Software Technology by Thamarai

photo_2015-07-26_17-44-41

I Just ask her to explain Women in FreeSoftware Technology Becoz More Women Contributors in Thiruvannamalai, Why they need that topic, they were boys also why specifically womens, Thamarai is Contributing to SWIFT, RubyGirls etc. So I can also explain about Womez, when Im saying means they taken as a topic only, so when an Women can explain means, they can inspire on her thoughts becoz she is a Great contributor & FreeSoftware Activist since 2011.

She Just Tells about Why Separate sessions for Womens, For Freedom of Speech, Encouragement, Awareness, Motivation, Come Forward like Leader, there is a shocking statistics when compared to men they all are contributing in 95%, but Womens contribution is only 5%. Why this situvation happens, how the Society is seeing the womens, male domination, no one knows? , hard to Get Involved, Self doubts and lack of confidence, Unwanted attention(OMG GirL).

She Clearly Explains what are the Ways Can Womens can Contribute in FreeSoftware Technology like Womez, Ubuntu Women, SWIFT, PHP Women, Debain Women, Drupal Chix, Linux Chix, GnomeWomen, RubyGirls and much more.

So I Just Created  a Open Document Presentation for Womez, here is it

GNU/Linux Installation Fest

I explained them about How to Install GNU/Linux and What are procedure may follow for that,

photo_2015-07-26_17-43-11

What are We Need before Installation A FreeSoftware Called Unetbootin, We must Shrink atleast 15-20GB of Harddisk Separately, a GNU/Linux Distro Iso file.

So I just Explained the Unetbootin Software procedure and GNU/Linux Installation Clearly in my Technical blogpost as Follows,

Using Unetbootin Software, Write the GNU/Linux Operating System (.iso File) to ur pendrive for Live booting or Installing Linux

How to Install GNU/Linux Operating System Procedure

So the Circle Groups are Again Separated into Several Teams, so we are 3 Volunteers We 3 Teach for a 5 Teams.

photo_2015-07-26_17-43-15 photo_2015-07-26_17-43-44 photo_2015-07-26_17-45-36

The Ultimate Aim of the INSTALLATION FEST is that “The New Contributors can use the Free Operating System, for a Free or Open Web, for any purpose, they can share with their friends, they can easily modify the source codes of their operating system.

All the Agendas are Over, So We Taken a Groupie Photo with All the Volunteers and especially with new Contributors

MDN’s 10th year Anniversary Celebration (10 Years of Mozilla Developer Network)

Mozilla Developer Network

Shared knowledge for the Open Web

Screenshot from 2015-07-21 18:39:04

Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) is an open and collaborative learning platform for Web technologies (HTML, CSS and JavaScript).

MDN goes beyond providing essential coding information; it addresses developers’ needs through its supporting community of volunteer developers, with the aim of inspiring ideas, encouraging collaboration and ultimately, fostering the growth of the open Web. For a wide  range of Web developers, from learners to hobbyists to full‐time professionals, MDN provides useful explanations for coding practice, instructions on downloading and building code, articles on how the code works. It also gives guidance on how to build add‐ons for Mozilla applications and apps for Firefox OS, user‐submitted  runnable  demos  of  Web  technologies,  and  helpful  answers  on  development  planning and strategy.

Openness is central to MDN, in that anyone can create an account to edit the content, and anyone can copy and reuse the content, under its Creative Commons (Attribution‐Share‐Alike) license. Likewise, anyone can join in discussions about planning and task management, via publicly accessible tools. This openness has coalesced a community of volunteer contributors that extends far beyond the small staff who keep pace with the rapid release cycle of Mozilla’s flagship browser.

The online collaboration also manifests in face‐to‐face events such as monthly MDN‐focused meet‐ups in Mozilla’s London and Paris offices  (joined  by  a  video  conference  link),  and  other  ad‐hoc  gatherings  that  members  may  take initiative to throw.

3

Chronology or History of MDN in 10years :

2005: Mozilla obtained a license from AOL to use content from Netscape’s DevEdge site. The  DevEdge content was mined for still‐useful material, which was then migrated by volunteers into a wiki so it would be easier to update and maintain. The new wiki was launched in July 2005 as Mozilla Developer Center (MDC), also known as “devmo,” shorthand for its domain name, “developer.mozilla.org.”

2010:  The  name  was  changed  to  Mozilla  Developer  Network  (MDN),  reflecting  the  site’s growth into a nexus for all developer documentation related to the Mozilla Project and open web technologies.

2011: A “Demo Studio” section was added for web developers to share and show off their code, along with learning pages to provide links to tutorials.  

2014:  The  basic  learning  pages  have  been  expanded  into  “Learn  the  Web”  content  for beginning  web  developers,  including  a  web  terminology  glossary,  which  Mozilla  staff  and volunteers will continue to develop over the next few years.
