Open Source Events especially where students and enthusiasts gather together and work for some real world events excites me a lot. We celebrated two days Mozilla Global Sprint 2017 by working on such real world issues in . It was of course fun to work together with open source enthusiasts and great thinkers. We permitted 30 students for the event. The event venue and catering was offered by Real Time Solutions Pvt. Ltd, company based on Nepal. The event was co-sponsored by Roshan Labs
The first day of the event on June 2 started with a basic discussion and networking followed by Keynote from one of the active volunteer of Mozilla Community. He gave the presentation on Introduction and History of Mozilla Nepal, how and why it started along with keynote session.
After Keynote and the break time, project leaders from all these projects gave small presentation describing the projects briefly to the participants. The session was full of interactions and the participants were very much excited to work on these projects. Now it was time to divide the team to work on different projects. Teams were divided according to the interest of individual in the projects. The day was wrapped up with more discussions on the topics.

After break, participants continued working on the projects. Some contributed by writing codes whereas some did by collecting data and information required for the project. At last, team leaders gave an insights about the work they did. There were about 7 pull requests made by the participants in different projects.
