Agenda: This meetup will serve as a SCRUM for the upcoming months so that the contributors can work in more Productive Way. It will be a fresh kickstart to the Mozilla Community Punjab. One of the major issue faced is newbies want to contribute but don't know how to. So the focus will also be on explaining the various contribution verticals (also a hands on) to all the club leads and other attendees, so that they can explain the same in their clubs and eventually increase the individual contribution to the vertical in which they are comfortable. Contributors around Punjab are doing great but are random. For that we need to meet at a nice place where we can interact with each other and share the problems and find solutions and eventually start contributing in right direction and ensure quality and productivity in even the most smallest things/contributions that we do.

Few Contribution verticals which will be discussed are:

-Writing/Editing a MDN doc

-Reporting and fixing bugs at Bugzilla

-Army of Awesome

-Localization

-Creating Makes

-Creating Demos

-Support Forum

-An overview of Firefox codebase and also Gaia (only for interested ones)

-The Firefox OS has been launched in India, so we will have an hour of an app dev session(including a live app submission), in which we will have a basic app building session(using Appmaker tool) and an advanced dev session too(for advanced developers, including web apis etc.) The agenda also includes planning for few more parties and prepare the newly joined FSAs to take the leadership for such parties.

We here in Rajasthan are trying to build a group of awesome contributors/developers in Punjab, on which Mozilla can count.

-Community Building in Punjab

-Ensuring Productivity and Quality in the contributions.
