Mozilla community space Bangalore has been a collective effort from the community. We’d like to specially thank Vineel R. Pindi, Kaustav Das, Priyanka Nag, Ankit Gadgil, Soumya Deb, Sayak Sarkar, Abhiram Ravikumar, Jafar Mohammed and Gauthamraj Elango for their efforts in building the community.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the support from William Quiviger, Rosana Ardila, and Michelle Thorne.

Thrilled to see what we could do in 2016!
