MozCamp Kashmir 2014

MozCampKashmir 2014

We organized MozCamp Kashmir at S.P College Srinagar Kashmir on 22nd May 2014. Since this was the first Mozilla Event in our state and very few people are aware about Mozilla products, its programmes and Open Source. So, many people were eager to join our event and know about Mozilla. First of all we need to get the permission from Our college Principal to host our event and we need to aware people about the event and its agenda,For that, Tanzeel Khan arranged some posters and created an Event page on facebook, Mozilla Wiki and Webmaker.He also designed I-Cards for Organizing Members.

Sheikh Faheem registered every participant before entering to the Lab.
