It’s been a long time I’m not published some awesome Mozilla event’s blog, I know I’m late, but better late than never. So here you go, it’s was a most memorable event for me. This event happened on 29th -30th March at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
This days was very hot day, but didn’t realise that because of enthusiasm. It was my first time visit to IITKGP (Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur), I take a train from Howrah station early morning and heading towards to Kharagpur for the event. It’s very big campus I’m pretty shock to see this things. After searching I found the venue PC LAB II, CIC. I recognize some faces Soumya Deb, Umesh Agarwal , Biraj Karmakar, Sayak Sarkar etc. then slowly sit down with other students in lab.
All computer’s running Ubuntu, I don’t know that much of bugzilla, so I studied on it. Slowly event started Manish Goregaokar suggested some bugs on etherpad. I try to solve this thing, terminal and lots of stuff it’s pretty interesting. I must say Manish help me a lot to learn those thing , I ping him maximum for little bit of problem he respond it without any delay. That’s environment was very nice to growing up your confidence little bit , but I can’t solve this bug after lots of try.
Time for lunch break we heading towards restaurant for lunch, I was pretty sad that I can’t solve any bug. This break time we discuss lots of topic regarding this followed by small adda to feel comfortable with other contributors like reps , mozillians etc. I closely know only Sumantro over there.
After lunch complete we back to PC Lab, little bit times left I thing I can’t solve this bug, but it happens I did it, because this environment was pretty nice felling motivated, not only me some IITKGP students not solve any bug, then slowly some times after good this happen some other IITians also solve bug and some guys solved 2-3 bugs.
One guy solving another bug on that day but this time Deb waiting for giving him prizes but he solving the bug, we are waiting this guy it’s a awesome to such enthusiasm. After giving prizes we are talking each other to say goodbye. This day I learned and earned lots of thing it’s very special event for me, though due to some heating problems turn out bit low , but some active participation it was a fruitful event. Lots of thing happen during this event I can’t explain those feeling, it’s memorable.
Finally I want to say thanks some awesome people out there because without their help it would not be possible Umesh Agarwal, Biraj Karmakar, Soumya Deb, Manish Goregaokar, Sayak Sarkar, Saurabh Anand, Gauthamraj Elango, Swarnava Sengupta, Sumantro Mukherjee etc.
