Community Dinner at Mainland China

 

My Experience:

As a new Mozillian I have been always interested in contribution in as many field as I can. I have contributed to pootle, Transifex, Support Forum, Webmaker, Army of Awesome, MDN and many other field. As I am a Wikipedia editor as well as reviewer I have been always keenly interested in Localization field and for Mozilla I also do so. As a newcomer to Mozilla I have contributed little very little till date, but this event hosted by Biraj Karmakar, really really has inspired me a lot to many localization project and as well as many other project too. I have learnt here about how to improve my translation, I have learnt how to become a smart contributor in the field of Open Source. I have learnt about Quality Assurance and many more. Apart from that all the helpful mozillians and their cooperative nature has really inspire me a lot. A big step in my Mozilla World I rather say and for that I want to thankx specially Biraj Da, for inviting me and also giving me the opportunity to learn more, to gain more knowledge. Once again thanx Mozilla and thankx to all my senior, junior mozillians.

Coming to the Cafe Coffee Day part, the discussion was absolutely fantastic aout Bn-In localization and it was more awesome with CCD Vanilla Frapee.. 😀
