in 2015, We had gone through many recurring events where we on boarded many contributors in our community. The number was really great that even we were lacking of mentors to guide them in the way.
2015 was an Awesome Year for me as I volunteered more time for my contribution in Mozilla. 2015 ended, but I got to know many things, which will make my involvement in this year much better. I want to improve myself more in this year, but before that I wanna recall my moments which happened this year and thank all of them who helped me throughout the year.
Involvement in QA from Bangladesh was happening from long Before but people used to contribute silently! There were some awesome QA Contributors like Ashickur Rahman, Ratul Minhaz and more who started contributing in QA from the very beginning of 2013/ 2014 but everyone contributed in different areas of QA! Their contribution in QA attracted me to start searching for involvement opportunities in QA! After the MozCamp Alpha in Bangladesh and I started searching opportunities about how to get involved! From that day till now, I have never missed any opportunity to get myself plugged in any opportunities run by QA Team!
In Bangladesh, QA Activity as an community started from QA Marathon Dhaka! Well, as I initiated the activities with the support of my community, I have seen enormous responses during and after the event that they wanted to join the event and learn how to contribute in QA! I tried to provide mentoring over online but it seems an offline event is more than awesome! As in an offline, you get to know the contributors more and give them inspiration for what we are doing QA! Besides you get to know, how things works, when someone new contribute to the Mozilla projects which helps you, specially me, to learn how to do things better!
I still can remember that day, when I first started my journey in QA! When wiki articles wasn’t seeming enough for me to start my contribution with QA contribution area, I asked for help in IRC’s #qa channel. At first 3 minutes, there was no reply from anyone but after the first silence period, I got enormous hands to support me. Well, that was really the beginning for me! Though it took me a while to make the contributing much easier for me but I had a great support from enormous people of Mozilla QA Team like Ada Lucinet, Andrei Vaida, Liz Henry, Stefania Ioana Chiorean!
