MozSetup – JGEC (A memorable experience in North Bengal)

Well, Hello There.. 🙂

I am back with my Blog. This time it was North Bengal, yes the beautiful North Bengal. The venue was Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College. My first organized event outside of Kolkata. It was quite an awesome experience. Thanks to Swarnava Sengupta for giving me company regarding Budget, Logistics, Planning and other stuffs.

I would mention two names here, one is Shiladittya Paul and another one is Ranendra Bose, the FSAs of Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College, without whose cooperation this event would have been so unsuccessful.

Boot2KGP – Kshitij 2015, IIT Kharagpur

Hi all,

Back with my blog post after a long gap. 🙂

Hope you all are doing good.

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.

Doing Good Is A Part Of Our Code 🙂
