What is Activate Mozilla Community?

Activate Mozilla Community is a significant campaign with four focus initiatives. It supports the current organizational goals by entrusting someone on how he can start participating on the web and build web a better place to live in. It also encourages mobilization of one’s community by predominantly focusing on special initiatives like development on Rust, WebVR, testing as well as non-technical ones like Maker Party and privacy policy.

It’s a tradition in India to light a lamp first before starting any auspicious events…

 

Thanks, IEEE and team iFest’16 for inviting me as Guest for the inaugural function of iFest’16. Here I have shared about Mozilla & its mission with people who came for this fest. It was an awesome feeling to share it when IEEE and DA-IICT board of directors sitting in front of you and you speaking and they all are keenly listening to you. It was honored to share the stage with them. 🙂 #BestFeelings.

The 1st session started with Rust, and before an event, I got to know that Abhiram was at  Gandhinagar and coincidentally at the same venue where we had this event so right before 5 mins to start the event I met the Abhiram and I asked him to start the Rust  session and then I had taken over.  this was the 2nd time I have met him.

What is Rust?

Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfault, and guarantees thread safety.

Rust will be the language of the future. I bet on it.

2nd session was about web compatibility.

What is Web Compatibility :

Web Compatibility, the ability for all Web content to run in all browsers, is important. There are multiple web content engines running on multiple devices, and sometimes with a little testing and some small tweaks to their site, developers can ensure that more users can have the full experience that is desired.
