None at the moment. Maybe you can attend or take a session in one of the many upcoming events in Pune, if you are around Pune, sometime soon. :-)
Mozilla Summer Code Party at Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies & Research, Model Colony, Pune, India. Organized a launch event for all MozParty related events to be held in Pune during the upcoming months. The audience turnout was about 80-90 people. The event was divided into hackjams, interactive hands-on sessions on various webmaking tools and talks on various Mozilla initiatives, 10 years of Mozilla 1.0 and how to get involved with Mozilla. As the venue was basically an IT college a large part of the attendees turned out to be college students who were quite aware of basic web technologies as expected. Hence the event served as a kind of initiation event where the attendees were be told about what Hackasaurus, X-Ray Goggles, Thimble are, and also spread the word about Mozilla Summer Code Party. The event turned out to be a big success achieving its main aim of encouraging the attendees to organize their own small Webmakers like events such as MozKitchens where they can teach their friends and family and thus spread more awareness about the web.
