On 30 Dec 2015. This event is very special for me because I also work in this firm. DreamOgrammerS is an IT firm who serves the local Tech support and help ICT Division of Bangladesh. So I requested and invited to our CEO and other developers, employees to join a meeting with the Mozilla in a Dinner. So last night means on 30 Dec, most of the employees of DoS join in this event. It was really honored for me that I succeed to got together almost all of them. Firstly, I started to share the Mozilla’s mission, vision and projects. Then I showed them why this Firefox Browser is unique from other browser. How and why Firefox is fighting for the user’s privacy and security? Though there were some developers, so they understood the importance of this. Besides, this is open source and so It was pretty clear to them what I tried to say. Then I showed the features of Firefox Browser in windows 10. They liked the Firefox Hello feature because this is builtin in a browser. Before finish, some of the developers shared us that they interested to contribute in this Firefox Browser for Desktop and Android. After the session, we took some photos and finished our dinner. This event was really unique to me that this time I showed my colleagues and friends that I volunteering in Mozilla with a good reason.

Conclusion

With is special event I finished my Windows 10 Campaign. This journey was really awesome. There are a lots of memory stays with me till my dead. But I can’t stop to express my feelings and I just want to thanks to one Special Lady, Chelsea Novak. Without her help I can’t plan this campaign or this campaign almost impossible for me to make this real. There are another lady who always stayed besides me and she is TJ. She also gave me so much idea to make a event successful. There is two more super starts of Mozilla Bangladesh, Ashickur Rahman and Hossain Al Ikram, they were just angel for me specially when I got sick.
