Take Aways of MozDeccan, The Mozilla Hyderabad Meetup 2015

Following up MozDeccan’s day 1 updates, here are updates from day 2 and take-aways of MozDeccan, the Mozilla Hyderabad local community meet-up 2015. On day 1, all active and core members of the local community were invited for planning road-map for 2015, with help of our past experience. The focus was on looking back at what we did till now, where we are today, framing goals for future & fine tuning the road-map.

Vineel opened the event by introducing Mozilla Hyderabad to participants. Akshay Tiwari and Harsha Bandaru, continued the discussion by sharing the statistics of the community with everyone. This was a very proud moment for all of us. Seeing the achievement and awesome work done by the awesome community members in last year was indeed the most pleasant feeling indeed. During ice breaker sessions, all of us enjoyed the activities over hot topics like net neutrality & mobile phones usage.
