Featured for September 2012
Based in Erode, Tamilnadu, India, Gauthamraj has been actively spreading the word and getting people involved in the Mozilla project in schools, internet cafés, mobile shops and basically wherever he can.
Lately, Gauthamraj has been particularly interested in webmaker tools and has hosted many training workshops of popcorn, thimble and x-ray goggle in local schools. Recently, he created a Web Page for Mozilla Community Erode using the Hackasaurus Tool kit. He says on his blog: "I hacked this page to illustrate the freedom given by Mozilla to people on using the Internet."
When not getting his hands dirty hacking webmaker tools, Gauthamraj leads the localization effort of SUMO in Tamil language( ta-IN). He's also a regional localization lead for Tamil for the reps community project NeMo.
Perhaps Gauthamraj's most recent accomplishment was to be featured in a great blog post by fellow Mozillian Laura Hilliger, where she shows just how amazing Gauthamraj' contribution to the project has been and how it has affected an entire network of people in India. Check out the blog post, it makes for a great read.
Keep up the great work Gauthamraj and congrats on being selected as the Rep of the Month for September 2012!
