Why Mozilla throws an annual Maker Party?
Mozilla believes the web is a global public resource that’s integral to modern life: it shapes how we learn, how we connect and how we communicate. But many of us don’t understand its basic mechanics or what it means to be a citizen of the web. That’s why we’re so passionate about teaching web literacy through hands-on learning and making. Our goal is to help people move beyond simply consuming the web to understanding and creating it, so it remains open, accessible and ours.
The main motto of maker party is “LEARN BY TEACHING”.
The best way to learn the web is to teach it. Hosting a Maker Party is not only personally rewarding, it contributes to the greater goal of increasing web literacy for everyone, everywhere in the world.
We throw the Maker Party for 3 days, 30th July to 1st Aug.

Day 1st :
We have started the day by paying tribute to Late Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam Sir. He was a great teacher and inspiration for all. So we decided to dedicated this Maker Party to him as a tribute.
One of my favorite quote by Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam as a student which inspired me.
One of the very important characteristics of a student is to question. Let the students ask questions.
Now, Let’s start Maker Party!!!
I (Mehul Patel) started with Maker Party Intro., why we hosting the event & what activities we will be held for next 3 days.
Webmaker is a part of Mozilla’s non-profit mission to create a more open, web literate world.
Webmaker tools make it easy to create things on the web. Make your own web pages, interactive videos, remixes, mobile apps and more — learning web mechanics, code and other valuable skills as you go
Thimble makes it ridiculously simple to create and share your own web pages. Write and edit HTML and CSS right in your browser, then instantly preview your work. Host and share your finished projects with a single click.
Here the session was started with Intro. & Hands-on, session taken by mainly Akshay Sonavane and me.
X-Ray Goggles allow you to see the building blocks that make up websites on the internet. Activate the goggles to inspect the code behind any webpage, then remix elements with a single click, swapping in your own text, images and more.
Session was taken by Ronit Jadhav.
Intro. To Programming Language :
This was the best session for the day. It includes basic intro. about programming language and how it can executed on different platforms.
Best part of sessions till here was, crowd were too many in numbers so we have divided them into 2 slots, we did 2 sessions simultaneously of WebMaker & Programming Lang. for each slots.
Multimedia & Animation :
What is Animation?
→ Animation is the process of creating the illusion of motion and shape change[Note 1] by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion — as in motion pictures in general — is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation.
What is Multimedia?
→ Multimedia is the field concerned with the computer-controlled integration of text, graphics, drawings, still and moving images (Video), animation, audio, and any other media where every type of information can be represented, stored, transmitted and processed digitally.
This was last session for the day and it was taken by Akshay Sonavane & Mayur Padma. Both were too good with their work. They have provided live demonstration of animation
Some awesome clicks for the day!!! :)
Group Selfie for the day!!! :)
We have decided to celebrate the day as “Open Source Day” because now-a-days open source technologies what everyone wants to learn.
Open source software is software whose source code is available for modification or enhancement by anyone.
“Source code” is the part of software that most computer users don’t ever see; it’s the code computer programmers can manipulate to change how a piece of software — a “program” or “application” — works. Programmers who have access to a computer program’s source code can improve that program by adding features to it or fixing parts that don’t always work correctly.
What is Linux?
Linux is the best-known and most-used open source operating system.It is the software on a computer that enables applications and the computer operator to access the devices on the computer to perform desired functions.
Session taken by Siddhartha & Tushar, Siddhartha has started the session with basic introduction of Linux and their use & key-features. Tushar has given live demonstration of Linux installation also at a same time students have also installed that as instructions given by Tushar. This session quite long as compare to other sessions. Our Technical Mozillians Like Akash, Mitesh helped those students who have faced the problems during the installation. These guys were awesome.
As we have too much crowd so its not possible for us to do installation for everyone, so we have decided that those who remains we will do the installation tomorrow as we have Linux Installation & Free OS Distribution Booth.
After Linux session, we have session on Blogging with WordPress, & Joomla. These are the CMS’s.
What is CMS?
A content management system (CMS) is a computer application that allows publishing, editing and modifying content, organizing, deleting as well as maintenance from a central interface. Such systems of content management provide procedures to manage workflow in a collaborative environment.
Session taken by Pranav, Aquib & Akshay. They have provided basic information about bogging and about to use these CMS’s. More of they been focused on that how they can easy their task by using it.
We made 2 slots for students as we have quite high number of students attendees.
Time for Privacy & Secuirty session. LIGHTBEAM was the focus of his session, the session taken by Siddhartha and to be honest it was AWOSOME SESSION!! There are many peoples in the world who tracked us everyday, every-minute, he has focused on The virtual add-on that helps visualize what are the THIRD PARTY TRACKING sites that are snatching your confidential data that you do not want to be tracked!! As result you can then BLOCK those websites for further data tracking by that particular website !! By using this Add-on you can block the threat site and or any third party site who been tracked you.
Tanmay has also provided the basic security tips which we need to taken care of. He was too good.
