Recently Mozilla Reps Council asked Mozilla Reps to fill Community yearbook for 2015. It was asked to fill to know more about the local community who are actively contributing. You can find the yearbook in Google presentationg
Each community can use one sheet to say what they have achieved in 2015, what are their proud moment in 2015 and what are their plans in 2016 then who are Mozillians present in the community. So I was exciting to fill for Mozilla Tamilnadu (MozillaTN shortly) Community. Other Mozilla contributors and Reps were very helpful in this process.
So the very first step I did was creating a etherpad for this and asked all the contributors to share their knowledge about our community and share their blogposts about the events they have done and regarding the FSA who are actively involved.
There are amazing people who have contributed very well in the past year and before that,
- Mozilla Reps – 7
- Firefox Regional Ambassador Lead – 1
- Active FSA Club – 3
- Active FSA’s – 50
We are sure we have missed some of the FSA clubs and FSA’s. But only 3 Club leads came forward to share about them. On seeing this stat really we are very big community and have large number of contributors. Hope in future we will increase the impact done by these contributors and have good communication with all.
Large number of FSA’s are actively involved in doing events in both online and offline in their college to spread awareness about Mozilla products. We say there are more than 25+ events done in 2015. Some of the massive events are
- Weeks of Contribution
- Series of MozCoffee to
- Bug Triage days
- L10n Sprint
- MDN Sprint
- App days
On Seeing this our community more loves events in Localization, Documentation, Bug Triage and QA, Firefox OS Apps building,Marketing and Community building. So in 2016 More focus will be given to these contribution areas and will be adding other contributors in other contribution areas too.
Achievements in 2015
Our community members have done some of the significant achievements as a whole community and individually.
- Karthikeyan become one of the RAL for FSA program
- Adam has been named as FSA super star and he was also appreciated by MDN community for his contribution to Firefox OS page creation.
- Many contributors have brought new community members to contribute.
In 2015 we didn’t actively follow any community structure, when a new contributor comes in and asks question then the contributor who was aware of that area of contribution will come forward to answer them. This didn’t scale much. There were many contributors who had same doubts as other had.
2016 Community Plans
We have some goals in 2016 as a whole community. We have set a very big goals for upcoming year. Some of them are as follows
- Community Meetup (Tamilnadu Community Meetup)
- Re Structuring the Community to have mentor-mentee
- Brining 20+ active FSA clubs.
- Constantly following up Contributors to know about them & update them with latest paths to contribute.
