Wowoo.. Writing this blog on the day of HOLI.. 😀 Happy, Safe & Prosperous Holi Guys and girls.. 🙂 Now, let us come to the point. MozBoot – SVIST, where SVIST stands for an engineering college name situated in South Kolkata – Swami Vivekananda Institute of Science & Technology. To remind you this was my 3rd event organized by myself. I, Mr. Ayan Choudhury with the help of Mozilla representative Biraj Karmakar, was able to organize this event on the day of 23rd February, 2015. For getting the event details please click here. It was quite a poor response but to be mentioned those 30 pupils were very much interested in Mozilla Mission. What made me happy was their enthusiasm. We four able to make our time to reach the venue within 10 A.M. 1. Biraj Karmakar 2. Sumantro Mukherjee 3. Sukanta Pal 4. Ayan Choudhury The agenda of that day was as follows:
First of all I want to give a brief description on FUEL project. FUEL is an open source effort that aims to solve the problem of inconsistency and lack of standardization in software translation across platforms. FUEL provides linguistic and technical resources, such as standardized terminology resources, computer translation style and convention guides, assessment methodologies, complex text-layout rendering references, and translation assessment matrices. FUEL can be adopted by any localized content-generating organization or team that wants to ensure consistently high quality. The approach of FUEL to create linguistic resources is not different from any software development. The uniqueness of the idea behind FUEL is the power of collaborative innovation.
Last Week, on 22nd February we the Bengali India Community organized an event named as bn_IN FUEL Meetup. A group of 15 enthusiastic localizers were invited to the event but hardly 10 came up and atlast 4-5 members worked hard to complete those 3 given FUEL projects.
On the very next half we started contributing to the Pontoon projects of FUEL terminologies. There were 3 new comers. We started to give them task and they were submitting and side by side we were also reviewing their submissions. Then as we had a very short time left. We divided ourselves into two parts. Me and Biraj Karmakar. I started the cloud part and biraj da started the web part.
At the end of the day, few strings were left. I came back home and sat down with those strings and finished it within that night only. 🙂
Special thanks to Rajesh Ranjan and entire FUEL team who gave us this chance.
And yes till now, I am the top most contributor at Pontoon.. 🙂 😀 which inspires me a lot.. 🙂

Boot2KGP – IIT Kharagpur, this is one of the biggest Mozilla Events I have ever attended. Around 100-150 enthusiastic participants were so much ready to join the hackathon. I was really amused watching them.
Our session divided into 3 parts. One was at Kalidas Auditorium Hall, the 2nd one was at Nalanda Complex and the 3rd one also at the same place.
Sayak Sarkar, Sumantro Mukherjee, Debapriya Bhattacharya & Me was in charge of the Kalidas Auditorium where we discussed about Mozilla and Its Mission, we discussed about Firefox OS architecture, Mozilla Webmaker Project & Mozilla Geolocation Stumbler. It started at around 10:30 p.m. and ended at 1 a.m.. Meanwhile Soumya Deb, Jai Pradeesh & Swarnava Sengupta left for Nalanda complex to start with the overnight hackathon. We completed our session at around 1:00 a.m. & then join with them for the overnight hackathon.
The hackathon part was divided into two parts.
1. Firefox OS App Development
2. Firefox OS Core Development
Jai Pradeesh took care of the Firefox OS App development & Soumya Deb took care of the Firefox OS Core Development. We were among the participants to help then with the issues they were facing. It was a nice interactive session for the whole night. As this was my first overnight event for Mozilla, really I was very much excited and enjoyed a lot during the event.
I specially want to thank Swarnava for organizing this event & also Gaurav Jain the FSA of IIT KGP for helping Swarnava making the event successful.

The definition of awesomeness was realized by me again, hell yea its all over again at Hive Kharagpur!!! Merely it was a place for fun, merely it was an event. Yes the thing it was, was the togetherness and determination of every mozillians in Kolkata & Kharagpur to make something good, to learn teach and share, to make Hive Successful. “Hive KGP” the best-est thing of 2014 according to me.
Overview of Hive:
Hives are comprised of organizations (libraries, museums, schools and non-profit startups) and individuals (educators, designers, community catalysts and makers). Together, they create opportunities for youth to learn within and beyond the confines of traditional classroom experiences, design innovative practices and tools that build the field for greater impact, and contribute to their own professional development within an active community of practice.
The Hive model is supported by three levels of engagement: Events: Organizations with shared learning goals unite to provide a fun, engaging event for youth as a first step towards exploring longer-term collaboration. Hive Learning Communities: Community organizers with an interest in Hive’s core principles come together to begin putting connected learning tools and practices into practice through regular meet-ups and events. Hive Learning Networks: Officially designated Learning Networks with an operational budget and staff commit to promoting innovative, open-source learning models in partnership with a communities’ civic and cultural organizations, businesses, entrepreneurs, educators and learners.
