Kabbo



"Kabbo" is the first Bengali poem apps in Firefox Marketplace.

For the last couple of months, i was working on some Firefox OS apps ideas. After analysis, I feel the shortage of Bengali literature based apps in Firefox Marketplace. So i engaged myself for developing "Kabbo", a collection of 100+ Bengali poems apps. This December the apps published in Firefox marketplace. Initially there are some basic features like platform independent, offline usability, compatible in all Firefox, poem search option and so on.

কাব্য" এপ্লিকেশনটি বাংলা ছড়া ও কবিতা সংকলন করার একটা ছোট উদ্যোগ। ফায়ারফক্স ওএস ব্যবহারকারীদের বাংলা কাব্য চর্চাকে উৎসাহিত করার জন্য মূলত এ উদ্যোগ নেওয়া হয়েছে।

In this version added 9 poems of Satyendranath Dutta, 5 poems of Jogindranath Sarkar, 50 poems of Sukumar Ray, 4 poems of Jatindramohan Bagchi, 24 poems of Rabindranath Tagore and 10 unsorted poems.


Now based on the feedback from the users, working on the next version update of the apps.

Mozilla Reps Camp 2013

Mozilla Reps Camp is a yearly meeting of the Council members and Reps mentors for discussion of different topics, review our status and as well as planning for upcoming year.

This year the Camp city was Madrid, Spain, from 30th August to 1st September, 2013 and the theme of the Camp - Building Communities

I applied for the Schengen Visa and lately received the visa approval after some complications. As i am the only attendee from Bangladesh for the ReMo camp, i started my journey for the camp from Dhaka - Istanbul - Madrid. Mozilla booked my flight with TURKISH AIRLINES. The flight was good.

I meet with Alfredos Panagiotis Damkalis aka fredy at the Istanbul Airport. We ride the same flight from Istanbul to Madrid. From the Airport we decided to take the metro. After going the halfway we have to reroute our way to the Hotel, because of a line was closed for construction. Lastly reached the Radisson Blu Hotel Madrid Prado. I shared room with my mentor Vineel from India.

This camp reminds me of my previous attended Mozilla Reps Camp 2012, Berlin. This year many faces were missing from the previous camp but meet some new mozillians (face to face) for the first time.

We all wear special cool yellow vests during most of our sessions in Hub Madrid.


Thrilling camp days passed  with brainstorming, jotting ideas, action plans and so on... We do swot analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats), also divided into groups and discussed about different scheduled topics.

Our last day late night wandering in the Madrid's street was very very interesting :)


Madrid is one of the best location in the world for Fine Arts. As a great art lover i didn't miss the chance from our busy schedule to visit the Museo Reina Sofía (Spain's national museum of 20th century art) to see the famous masterpiece - "Guernica" by Pablo Picasso. i did explore some floors of the museum with some of my fellow mozillians but not much for time shortage.

ITTW Conference 2013 Fall

This seminar is being organized to gather high school and college students together, and promote involvement in the IT industry amongst them. Venue: Auditorium, International School Dhaka, Bashundhara.

A small seven member Mozilla Bangladesh team attended the three hour conference.

We meet some celebrities like Nash Islam (CEO at G&R), Riyad Husain (CEO at Magnito Digital), Kazi Monirul Kabir (Country Consultant Bangladesh at Google), Fahim Mashroor (Founder and CEO at bdjobs.com) and so on. During the conference they share their sweet and sour experience, which was interesting and very inspiring. They talk about honesty, self judgment, creative ideas, how to manage time and most importantly entrepreneurship.

After the conference i talk with some of the speakers about Mozilla Bangladesh community and possible future coordination. We share our views and facts. The other Mozillians also talk with them about different topics. I display our "KEON" device, describe features and spread Mozilla by distributing WebFWD swag.
