What is Summer Code Party?
This summer, Mozilla came up with a unique global experiment by inviting people around the world to make and learn something amazing with the web. This turned out to be the world’s first-everSummer Code Party.” Started on June 23.

Our community members from across the country hosted the code party, got together, made things, played with the Webmaker projects, and learned a lot. These include MozParty PuneBVP DelhiIIT DelhiAnthiyurErode and many other. The response has been amazing and its an incredible experience for the community for its role in making for a more web literate world. The efforts, small and big have been recognized through out the global community proving the power of contribution.

Pune presently being one of the most happening places for the Mozilla Summer Code Party,  Mozilla Reps Ankit Gadgil and Sayak Sarkar organized the MozClub event at Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research(SICSR), Pune on 11th August 2012.

Pune is now the city with the highest number of Mozilla Reps in India. The Reps are constantly working to make the Summer Code Party a huge Success. With the events Like MozParty and MozFest proving to be highly successful, MozClub at SICSR was another addition to the Hit List.
The MozClub event was intended to learn the basics of Webmaking, work with Webmaking tools and create an official Mozilla Students Club at SICSR.
With all the ReMos brainstorming at the latest MozCafe, thus the idea of MozClub was born.
With the idea coming to reality, the event was scheduled on 11th August 2012. The venue, unarguably the hub for FOSS events : SICSR, Pune.
The Event saw an excellent crowd of 65+ students from SICSR in attendance eager to grab knowledge.
