We are so thrilled to announce that Mozilla India is partnering with the India’s largest Maker Festival, Maker Fest 2018 for the 5th consecutive year. The call for participation is open for all Mozillians.
Mozilla India has partnered with Maker Fest 2018, to map and empower a community of educators and creative people who share a passion to innovate, evolve and change the learning landscape. This year, Makerfest is back with an upgraded awesomeness with a 150+ Makers, 50 workshops, 25 awesome speakers, and 30,000+spectators.
The event is focused on introducing and teaching the state of art system programming language Rust to local programmers and Mozillians in Gujarat. This is the first time Mozilla will participate at ORDINATEUR’17! The summit will involve students and tech enthusiasts from the university. I gave a talk on Rust programming which is one of emerging technologies and one of the major focus of Mozilla.

While wrapping up with RainOfRust campaigns I was working on reports and gathering feedbacks from the community about our recent initiative and we got an overwhelmed responses from the all around. The participation with IEEE R10 Sectional Leadership Summit was one of the feedback of our recent work for the community.
Here IEEE Gujarat Section and IEEE GCET Student Branch invited me to join at IEEE R10 Sectional Leadership Summit which was organized on 3rd & 4th August at G H Patel College of Engineering & Technology, Vallabh Vidyanagar, Gujarat.
I was very excited and I accepted their invitation as this was the 1st time Mozilla’s presence at IEEE summit.
Growing up I was a tech geek, always kept myself updated with the latest ongoing in the language world. It always excited me to explore the tiny bits of these platforms and constantly kept myself updated with brushing my knowledge.
About 9 months ago I met Manish Goregaokar, who works in Mozilla as a Rust/Servo Contributor met me at Mozilla India meetup which was organized by Mozilla India team and I was one of the core team member organizing that event. He introduced me this programming language and gradually I became very fond of it, finding it very interesting and exciting to explore this language.
Eventually after spending some time, analyzing and exploring this programme, I discovered that masses including students, startups, developers are not completely aware, very few users actually being aware about Rust. Even after spending a quality time on this programming language, I still feel I have a whole new world to be discovered up in front of me. Simultaneously I thought it would be wise to educate users regarding Rust language. I seeked help from my mentors,friends and staff from Mozilla in setting up a campaign to spread awareness about Rust. This is how we came up with Rain Of Rust campaigns.
About Rain Of Rust :
Rain of Rust Campaign, a month-long global campaign in which would be specifically focused on the Rust language. It has taken place in June 2017 in collaboration with the Rust community.
