Special Interest Groups ( Initiative by Mozilla Community Rajasthan )
Mozilla Community Rajasthan have always been a budding, amazing part of Mozilla. It comprises of cool mentors and participants from all over Rajsthan coming from different domains of studies and colleges. The family just gets more bigger and bigger with advent of new events in all paths of Mozilla Contributions, be it Codebase, Webmaker, AppDev or WoMoz. The warm feeling of having more people in the family is always a treat, and all the community members joined together to welcome the new, exciting and passionate youngsters into the team.
To get more contributors onboard, we have decided to start a new initiative completely guided under Mozilla Reps, Trishul Goel, Ram Dayal Gurumukhi and Osho Parth, to start a Special Interest Group :) .
What is SIG ?
- SIGs are groups of individuals within the MCR who have a particular interest (focus) in a specific area of the Mozilla project (eg. Coding, Localization, Support, QA, Marketplace etc). These groups are created to enable contributors to focus on developing specific skills and work more closely with experienced contributors for those projects.
- These groups will act as key drivers to on-board and help new volunteers to contribute to those projects they are particularly interested in.
- This will also be helpful in recognizing the awesome contributors as keeping track of contributions will become easier.
Under SIG, we have mainly four verticals under which newer and existing contributors are clubbed :-
- Webmaker SIG
- App Dev SIG
- CodeBase SIG
- WoMoz SIG
- Engagement SIG (umbrella covering all mentors of SIG)
