Feedback Received:

  • Positive : The talk just not covered the basics of Rust, but also visualised how Rust can help in coding better and safe.
  • Negative: 1. Talk can be delivered in two separate sessions instead of one. 2. Needs more time for workshop.

Future Improvisation:

Will incorporate the Feedback received.

Will try to have multiple sessions or Will try to give few considerable breaks.

Will give enough time for workshop.

About : 

“Let’s Have a Sip of WebVR” was an event conducted to Introduce WebVR to Newbies. The event was part of a ActivateMozilla campaign and series of Introductory Sessions about WebVR & A-frame.  The current Event was aimed at the people who had good background knowledge of Web Application Development. The Event glided over Mission & Vision of Mozilla, How to get started in WebVR and How to start the journey as Mozillian.

As part Part of Mozilla’s Vision and Mission audience were briefly introduced to various initiatives by Mozilla and respective Wikis & Knowledge sharing links are pointed.

The WebVR talk kick started with introduction of Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality and how they are changing the technology we use today.  The A-frame basics are shared and A-frame elements are explained.

After the WebVR and A-frame introduction, few samples available in the online are taken and a walk-through of the sample is performed. This gave the audience better understanding of the script flow and the usage of elements.

Following the talk a Hands-on workshop was conducted to build a simple A-frame scene. While doing the same the issues and errors observed by the audience are rectified and made to work.

Upon successfully building the frames, the audience are introduced to various available options to contribute to WebVR and how to get involved in WebVR community. The audience were also introduced to contribution option in Mozilla and were explained how their journey as a Mozillian can be.

In the end, the session and workshop ended with a Q&A which addressed many things about Mozilla, WebVR, Rust, events nearby and next event

Journey To MARS (MAkeRfeSt)


An experienced flier and a space newbie launched spaceward on a rocket  (Jan 6) to begin a three day Mozilla mission on the laboratory in orbit.

At 6:30 a.m. IST (0100 GMT) Jan 6,2017, MozTN astronaut Vigneshwer Dhinakaran of ReMo and MozBLR astronaut Rufus Chakravarthy Sharma (of the TechSpeaker Space Program) lifted off from the KIA in Banglore on a 2-hour journey to the space station. It was a flawless flight into orbit.

The mission is Rufus’s first time traveling to space, and he will also be the first newbie astronaut to live aboard the space station.

Space Station

The new crew-members(Rufus and Vignesh) join a veteran of many spaceflights and commander-in-charge and MozIN astronaut Vineel Reddy, current space station commander and MozGuj astronaut Mehul Patel, on-board astronauts Vishal Chavan, Md Shahbaz Alam, Viral Parmar, Pranshu Khanna, Tanay Pant, Kamlesh Vilpura, Mayur Patil and cosmonauts Ipsha Bhidonia, Anubha Maneshwar, Mansi Trivedi

In the space station, the crewmembers investigated on the researches conducted by the Space Agency Mozilla, which helps in Free Human Life Span, and graphed theories that can be implemented. The crewmembers made a self assessment and based on the research requirement, they volunteered for implementation of theories.

” During the conference and crew gathering, all the crewmembers talked animatedly about the science they’ll get to perform while aboard: projects that will span human research, WebVR, RUST, Online Privacy, Campus Club. “ 

On MARS (MAkeRfeSt)

As soon as the crewmembers marked their foot-mark on MARS (MAkeRfeSt), they hopped into mission and started their research.

   –  Mission RUST :  astronauts Vigneshwer took the mission on their shoulders and made a remarkable contribution to the RUST.

–  Mission WebVR : astronauts Shahbaz, Viral  and  Pranshu with their research made the world to Visualize a Virtual Reality. Which drew attention of many.  

 –  Mission Privacy Month :  astronauts Rufus, Vishal, Ipsha, Tanay and Mayur with their contributions to Privacy Month, they raised awareness in many people including kids

   –  Mission Campus Club : astronauts Mansi, Anubha and Kamlesh with their great effort helped many to join and contribute to Mission Mozilla.

 Commander-in-charge astronaut Vineel Reddy and space station commander astronaut Mehul Patel supervisioned the complete research & mission and took it to next level.


The Ground Control gave a press release stating that “The Contribution done by these Astronauts to Human kind can be carved in the Mozilla Space History”

The Social Media praised the research and contributions made by the astronauts. Which can found on ,

Ground Report

On returning to Earth, The crewmembers said, “Every spaceflight is a very interesting flight, and in this case, it’s a very intense research program and particularly interesting mission”

The commanders and senior crew are very excited about crewmembers and as a departing word they stated that they look forward to work with the crew again, because of their extensive experience and nature.


with the awesome!! ASTRONAUT SUIT!!!!

About Mission

The Mission MARS was directed by Asha Jadeja of Motwani Jadeja Family Foundation.

“Mission MARS (MAkeRfeSt) has always been part of the Mozilla Space Agency, but only recently it has been part of the Mozilla Activate Spaceflight Program. The MAkeRfeSt really opens the door in terms of the scientific community that can enjoy participating in the scientific research done onboard the space station. It also opens the door for industry to become involved in some of the engineering and technological work that’s being done onboard the space station.”
