While I've been an active member of the Mozilla community for quite a while, this was the first time I attended a pan-India Mozilla meetup. The Community Meetup was held in Hyderabad from 4th to 6th April 2014.
I tried to take this opportunity to finish a pending patch I had been working on. With Saurabh's [:sawrubh] help, I made some progress but it'll take a bit more time.
I participated in the activities of the Technical Task Force where we discussed issues related to meetups, hackathons, and other events, and whether these events are actually solving the purpose. A number of solutions were proposed and we will soon see some of them in action.
We also started work on a node.js application called Vibe that can assist in adding public information to the events. The Reps portal features events, but some event specific information cannot be featured there. 'Vibe' would aggregate the events, attach the new metadata and display this. We set up a Trello board to track progress, but will probably switch to Github issues later.
We also talked about recent changes in Firefox, FirefoxOS, and future launches! These devices have a lot of potential and everyone's excited to help with development and release.
In a nutshell, it was exhilarating to finally meet the Mozilla community. Thanks to everyone in the TTF, Galaxy, Vineel, Kinshuk, and everyone else who made this possible!
