Being part of Mozillians - My Story

 
It’s been a while, I checked my blog if it’s still running. So everybody is welcome again as usual.
So the news is I lately got the chance to work with mozilla Sri Lanka Community since it’s
Reestablishment and I must say it’s one hell of an experience. Thanks to Danishka Navin, I have met other Mozilla Reps Malinda Prasad, Kalpa Welvitigoda and of course others too.  (Read:  my very first meeting with Mozillians)
With my journey started with mozilla, we launched the Firefox 29 Code name Australis in Sri Lanka.
(Read Article here).
Not only that, with the mozilla Sri Lanka community we are reaching to schools with FOSS (Free and open source software) communities also.  Kingswood College Kandy event was one of the most successful events we hosted with interesting topics such as FirefoxOS App Development and other informative sessions.
Lately we have hosted FirefoxOS Application Development day at National School of Business Management ( NSBM ) which was a two day workshop including Brief introduction to HTML5 / JavaScript / CSS3 and frameworks , Development using APIs  ( Thanks to Shafraz Rahim from Dialog IdeaMart Team participants got knowledge about Accessing to Dialog APIs such as LBS ( Location Base ) , SMS , USSD , etc.. )
The most important part is every participant was able to develop applications for FirefoxOS. And as I remember 3 apps were published.
Kind thanks should also goes to Mozilla Foundation for their valuable swags (T-shirts / Stickers / Buttons / Glasses / etc.)  ;)

so it’s not the end . Today we’re going to Ambalangoda Karandeniya Central College with FOSS Community – NSBM for a 1 day workshop about free and Open Source software’s and its benefits, including Introduction to Linux ,  Privacy controlling , Educational and alternative applications , and FOSS communities with  Mozilla Sri Lanka.
As the journey begun mozilla SriLanka next events already planned at several universities as well . if you are interested I suggest you to check mozilla.lk for further details
