He told student about Open Source, FOSS, how they can get code of any open source softwares and can work on it, he also told them how mozilla is part of open source and what students can do for mozilla.
Next session was taken by Mr. Lavish Aggarwal (Me), introducing mozilla, its mission and other products of mozilla which were new to students as they were only aware about Firefox Browser continuing with this they were also told them about Open Web and philosophies of Open Web.
Putting the next step forward, next session was taken up by Mr. Varun Kaushik. He told students about SUMO covering AOA, ln10, QA, Support Forums and writing an article. Students were keen to know about such convenient way of contributions.
Keeping the continuity of workshop, me and Osho introduced students about one of the sexiest tool of mozilla i.e; Mozilla Webmaker. Students were amazed by seeing online editing of websites using X-Ray Goggle, live rendering of html pages using thimble and video mixing tool i.e; Popcorn.

Here comes the time to develop apps for Firefox OS, In this session I told students about how to develop app in simple 4 steps that were:
