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 SofĂ­a (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.
