We in India recently had Task Force meetup 2015. Previous year I have been contributing to Firefox Student Ambassador Task force team as I was VP of Tech of FSA program. This year also I joined as FSA task force as member to continue my contribution. And also I joined Marketplace task force team newly created. Sayak introduced me to MLS team. I love to learn many things so I can share to my friends and other contributors. With this in mind we some contributors in Tamilnadu ( a small state in India) was discussing to organize weekly only event so many new contributors will be joining and learning new things. Thats how Weeks of Contribution began.
Before starting this we have created a small website for our region, we have also integrated it with Google analytics. We released our website on May 25th 2015 I had gained some good views from Community members and had 30 visits, now after one month June 26th 2015 we had 150 visits. On Average 75 visit per day we are having. We are trying to update it with latest content we can.
Would love to share few notes as Weeks of Contribution
- Mozilla Location Services
- Bug fixing
- One and Done
Planned to have one area each and every week. With some gaps after every 2 areas are introduced so contributors can do some contribution and can show to the community.
Our main focus is to bring contributors and help them to show the path for Open source contribution.
Hope at the end of this program around 20 new contributors will start contributing to various contribution areas.
