Pune, India, was a hotbed of webmaking activity last year. So it’s no surprise that this great day-long hack jam helped kick off Maker Party 2013 two days ago.

 

“Let the Webmaker party begin in India — the day it begins globally!” Priyanka Nag, event organizer

 

The event gathered computer science students at the Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies to learn about Mozilla and open source — then spend the afternoon hacking with  Webmaker tools like the X-Ray Goggles, Thimble and Popcorn.

Priyanka Nag, the event’s organizer, says she was able to plan the party in less than a day. “The super awesome part was the India community’s Webmaker Super-Mentors’ remote help and contribution.”

We ended the day by giving out Mozilla swag as prizes to the best makes of the day,” Priyanka says. “After the event I got infinite calls, messages and Facebook pings from my participants demanding more such Mozilla sessions in college soon! It was a great feeling to see their enthusiasm.”
