MozConnect is our annual event to collaborate in central India region with the clear ambition to unite our efforts to build a better community, Since last year, we have grown tremendously and had some very successful and productive events for almost all Mozilla Projects.As an education hub we still have lots of opportunities to grow ourselves and to find good sustainable contributors.
This year we are coming up with more aggressive approach putting focus on growing contributor base from Madhya Pradesh. To achieve this goal we are planning to invite active contributors from Madhya Pradesh region to come put their thoughts for building a better strategy and roadmap for this year.
We have done a great Job for community from past two year and Mozconnect events were key events of these growth.In just two years we have been successful in planting community base in Bhopal, Indore , Ujjain, Gwalior , Jhansi and other parts of Madhya Pradesh. We also got 5 Reps from our region.
Mozconnect 2015 is focused on creating a productive pathway for Madhya Pradesh community. Aim is to unite all sub communities and make them a single united community for state. This will enable knowledge exchange between cities and enable a better communication with no conflicts of interest. So we are coming up this time as Mozilla Madhya Pradesh Community.
