The event started off with our first speaker Ishita. She started with an introduction about FOSS and MOZILLA. Then we jumped into different topics related to Mozilla project. Topics like localization, Firefox OS, SUMO, Army Of Awesome were also covered and participants were given a brief idea about all of these.

Then we took a lunch break and we started off with the actual maker party. Participants were explained the different tools of webmaker like Thimble, Popcorn, Xray-Goggles and Webmaker. Later there was a hands on session where participants were asked to submit their webmaker projects in the etherpad. The top 16 submissions were chosen and they were awarded with Mozilla Stickers. After that Sreemegha and Ishita continued with Womoz. Attendees were enthusiastic. Around 55-60 attendees came up on that day and they showed us a great involvement.
