After a Longtime, Im Going to Write a Blogpost about Mozilla Event in My College. Hi this is Adam FSA and Clublead in MEC Firefox Club. For a Year I requested my College Management to Conduct a Mozilla Event by me. But they Refused to give the Chance to me. I was more disappointed. They I Contributed More and More to Mozilla. When I Got FSA OF THE MONTH Recognition by Mozilla. I Proved myself and My contributions towards Mozilla to My college. Then They give a Post to as PRESIDENT OF MEC FIREFOX CLUB
My First Advice to new Contributors is to Learn fully, Contribute More then Make an huge Event, got Recognition or Proof of Identification from Mozilla then request the College management. Because most of the Colleges expect proofs to execute such things like Building Community etc.
I just invited more members for MEC Firefox Club they are more interested to Learn More things about OpenSource and Mozilla. So the College Management arranged 2 Faculty mentors for Our MEC Firefox Club (Mrs.Pradeepa and Mrs.Jayapriya).
The Mentors of MEC Firefox Club automatically Schedules an 2day events for the 2ndyear and 3rdyear Computer Science and Engineering Students on September 10&11. I already told to them about to make Sessions for them, So I Requested Swags from mozilla on august and I received before the event day itself on September 9.
