Windows 10 Community Activation Campaign

24th December, the day before Christmas, I with few cool Mozilla volunteers did a campaign at my campus entitled “Windows 10 Community Activation Campaign”.

I had a plan to do this event on October, but we had few obstacles at the university (exams, political, vacations etc.) . The thing is I could finally have a chance to activate the windows 10 community at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology. The agendas of the event were as follow:

  • Introductions
  • Share your story as Mozilla contributor
  • Define Goals,Target markets,Strategy
  • Flip participants back to Firefox in Windows 10
  • Make some memes by amplify the message
  • Possible ways to organize more campaigns
  • Ask participants for new idea how they can run this Campaign throughout the year
  • Snacks
  • Feedback
  • Swag Distribution
  • Group photo

We tried to cover almost all the agendas. We printed few banners for the publicity at the campus.

After the introduction the main program started.

Happy Starting

We discussed about the Goals,Target markets and Strategy of Firefox for Windows 10.

time to set Firefox as Default Browser

The main goal of the event was to demonstrate the participant how they can set Firefox as their default browser on their Windows 10 devices. I showed them the way to make Firefox as their default browser.

Set Firefox as Default

Then I demonstrated the features of latest Firefox.

Super speedy Browser

Really it was hard for me to make the participants believe the speed of Firefox 😛

I showed the participants how they can customize Firefox as they like.

Then there were few questions for me from the participants.

Question Answering.

I answered every question and started discussing about internet privacy . How Firefox is a good tool to keep us safe.

We watched Firefox promotional videos from YouTube.

Internet Privacy awareness

Audience

We got 3 local celebrities on our event 😀 [Album] Thanks to them for coming and giving time.

Then I asked if anybody faced problems while using Firefox. Then something happened ; Lots of complains were coming from them. I used sticky notes to collect them.

Problems.

And gave the solutions to the problems they raised.

I showed them few tips and tricks of  Firefox (about:config, sync, refreshing Firefox, Unicode font support etc. )

How People Can Contribute to Mozilla

Eventually the program ended with group photo and comments on sticky notes.

oops! I forgot to mention something. Participants were given small token of love from Mozilla (yes people, I’m saying about the swags!)

Swags

Buttons (Swags)

We shouted saying Mozilla while taking the group photo. You’re lucky that images don’t record sound 😀 It they did, you could hear a roar :)

Well, to me a rainy day is the perfect day for sleeping 😛

But 12th June was an exception;

MozCoffee at SUST

MozCoffeeatSUST

 

6th March 2015, A remarkable day for me.
For the very first time feeling proud to organise my first event as Mozilla Reps.

Speech

Opening Speech about MozCoffee

It was pleasant gathering of 23 Mozillians on  the Rooftop of Cafeteria of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology and everyone was excited to hear about Mozilla activities and about the this MozCoffee.

new-mozillians

Excited Mozillians

I gave a brief how they can contribute to Mozilla. I told them it’s not a job, it’s community of developers, designers, organizers, and lot other dedicated people who are contributing in their own ways and it is a worldwide network.

Yes ! We can do it !

Yes ! We can do it !

Agenda :

1. Planning of the next event

2. How can we make it a bigger group of contributors’

3. Discussed the way how they can contribute to Mozilla

I did quote one thing,

“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!”                  …. Sir Richard Branson.

Referring to this quote, i made them understand how it will help them and it’s a opportunity to ‘say yes’ and it will be life changing. They will experience something great.

Coffee time

Coffee served

After the sessions of discussion , coffee being served.

Mozillians discussing among themselves.

While the Mozillians were discussing among themselves, I planned on something to capture the moments of their excitement and for that after the coffee, I filmed the Mozillians thoughts about the MozCoffee with the help of a film maker who was there with us.

 

More photos of the coffee sessions.

Coffee Time Coffee Time Coffee Time Coffee Time

 

SELFIES’ all along…..

After the coffee we gathered for a group photo and they all asked me thank Mozilla for this Mozcoffee.

Group-Thank-you-Mozilla

Group Photo. Happy faces.

At the end of the group photo, the filming session stated, I am editing the videos at the moment, soon will be uploaded.

Thank you all and also those who took time to read it.
