This is when the journey begins. It wasn’t the easiest of task to make announcements in every single class at the top of our voices, but it turned out unexpectedly overwhelming.
The response was just fantastic. More than 40 students showed up even before we did (we were punctual). And then adding up to near about 65 by the commencement of the class.
The plan was crystal clear, this was the first time coding experience for many of the first year students, and we wanted it to be as basic as we wanted it to be interesting.
We started off with who we are, how we are what we are and most importantly WHY we (and the students) are here. Being straightforward open source enthusiasts, it wasn’t as difficult for us ‘Mozillians’ to make our students fall in love with open source as it once might have seemed.
The response was not only overwhelming when it came to attendance but also equally amazing when it came to respone of the students towards what is being taught.
By the end of the 4 hour long workshop, where everyone seemed interested throughout, we as ‘teachers’ were delighted to conduct a successful workshop on HTML and more importantly why is it important to be a programmer, a creator.
The students, we feel, felt amazing. And we expect an even more audience the next time.
