We gathered with the open-source contributors in Ranchi and invited other open source communities, to take part in the discussion on “PRIVACY”. A word which is very much popular these days, companies, government organizations, and developers who don’t even bother to give this right to the users.
And when there is a fight for the freedom of the internet and user’s privacy, no other than Mozilla’s name comes into mind. An organization that is fighting for the freedom of the internet and users’ privacy. Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all.– we believe truely believe this and doing good is part of our code.
One login. All your devices. A family of products that respects your privacy.
We talked about why and how this family of the product will be helping users to fight against user privacy and keeping their data safe and protected.

Common Voice is a project to help make voice recognition open to everyone. To create voice systems, developers need an extremely large amount of voice data. Most of the data used by large companies aren’t available to the majority of people. We think that stifles innovation. So we’ve launched Common Voice, a project to help make voice recognition open and accessible to everyone! Raise your voice and get involved!
We in Ranchi decided to host a series of events to achieve a certain goal for Common Voice.
The goal of this series was to achieve 6000 Clips of Audio Spoken from each participant, and tell you upfront, we did!

All the Volunteers are continuing this journey and will be taking part in Common Voice Booth at DevFest Ranchi on 22nd September.
Hello Everyone, It’s been almost 9 months since I wrote a blog. There are pending blogs coming soon from Oct 2018, which includes my journey experience and speaking experience from southeast Asia.
After a series of WebExtension events in Ranchi, It was time to test our Favorite browser, we organized two BugHunting events one on 25-May-2019 and next on 09-June-2019.
The first event started with downloading the Firefox Preview after signing and setting up the Google Play account. We have also discussed the importance of Bug and why one should always report.
Mozilla was launching a NEW Android web browser and they needed us to get it ready for the free and open web.
We followed How to Bug Hunt section of https://events.mozilla.org/becomeabetatestingbughunter and Shared the bug entry details
The event concluded with some delicious food at dinner as most of them were keeping Ramadan Fast. So, we preferred the night to do the event.
The second event had a different goal, we divided the team into two, one who attended previous Bug Hunting Event and the second set of people were new to Bug Hunting.
For newbies were followed the above steps and for ones who attended the previous event, were asked to go through bugs faced by each other and helping others to file the bug they encounter. We have submitted 56 bugs in total using bug entry.
We concluded the event with awesome food and more bugs!!
