MozIgnite Vizag @ GITAM University

MozIgnite Vizag, the first event in the city of Vizag was held at GITAM University Andhra Pradesh,India which was organized by Vikas Reddy, Firefox Student Ambassador of the university. I and Sujith Reddy (fellow Mozilla Rep) were invited to inaugurate Gitam's Firefox Club and to give awareness sessions on getting involved with Mozilla Projects and Firefox Student Ambassador's Program.

The event started with the inauguration followed by the speech by Principal of Gitam, who motivated the students towards joining of Firefox Student Ambassador's Program which helps the students to build leadership qualities to become good entreprenuers.

The audience turn over was overwhelming 400+ — the organizers had to filter the attendees for accommodation issues — as they stated. Kudos to Vikas Reddy and his team, for making the reach of the event so huge!

This G Studio team of Gitam did an amazing job by covering the whole event in their camera's.

After the Inauguration, Sujith has given a Keynote on FOSS and Open Web then I covered the Story of Mozilla,glance on how to Get Involved with different projects of mozilla, a session on Localization and on Firefox Affiliates Program. The audience got a chance to witness the new Firefox OS Phone.The sessions ended with demonstration on Firefox OS and Webmaker Project by Sujith and 2 Firefox Flicks Videos by the Flicks team of Gitam.
