An introductory session was organised by Mozilla Club Noida team at NIET, Greater Noida for new students on 22 July 2017. This event was an orientation program cum introductory event for new students who are unaware of Mozilla Campus Club’s presence in their college. The main motive was to introduce Mozilla, its mission, campus club program and to discuss ways to contribute to open source and contribution areas in Mozilla. 16 interested students were recruited as volunteers for Mozilla Club Noida. Mozilla Club Noida team also shared their experience being a part of campus club program and described their happy journey of around 2.5 years.
The event got kick started with lamp lighting by the institute officials and me. Ms. Kavya (core member) explained the gist of the Mozilla Campus Club and why should one join the club while Mr. Samriddha (core member) explained students the real meaning of contributions and where they adds up in our career. Along with this, he also discussed the perks of being a Mozillian and a contributor. Here are some of the points covered in the discussion :
- Community is important than code
- Contribution is the way to make things better
- Contribution always repays
- You should contribute to show your love to community
- Mozilla Campus Clubs are the best way and place to learn and grow
- The best thing which happens to you is you enjoy the community
- Experience is all you need and earn
Apart from this one of the club members, Mr. Surya shared his views on being a part of the club and how far has his journey being till now. The session went smoothly and pupil were taking more and more deeper look into our activities and were excited enough to start the contribution by joining the club to which I added that they should start the contributions the right way. The event came to an end by 1:00 PM as scheduled and students were really excited and engaged during the session which could be concluded by the perplexed faces of some students.
