The Mozilla Campus Club of Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Engineering organised Fibble’19 for the technical minds of Pune

The Mozilla Campus Club, Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Engineering, successfully organised a technical event called Fibble’19 in the city recently. Fibble, created from ‘fi’ in fix, ‘bb’in scribble and ‘le’ in battle, was a two-day event and included competitions on day 1 and TechTalk on day 2. It was hosted by the team members of the Mozilla Campus Club as well as volunteers. A total of 300+ students participated in the event who were given unique ID codes for their reference in the competitions. Here are some highlights:

Three competitions took place on day 1 and around 180 participants took part in it. Take a look at the competitions:  

Doodler: This competition was to bring out the creative side of youngsters. The participants were briefed about the event. All they had to do was take a picture anywhere in the college premises and simply make a doodle of it using the designing software of their choice. They were given two hours to do so. Around 40 students participated in this competition.

Technical Quiz: This event ran simultaneously with the Doodler. In this, the students were to participate in a team of two and a total of three rounds were held. The first round was an elimination round in which they had to take a test online on the Hackerearth platform. Then, 10 teams were shortlisted based on their scores for the second and third rounds.
The second round was a logo quiz in which they were shown different logos on the projector screen and they had to recognise the logos and write them on a sheet.

The third round was again a question-answer round, in which they had to write down the correct answers of the questions shown on the screen. Around 50 teams were a part of it.

Bug-Off: This was the third and last event of the day. The participants reported at the library building and each of the 20 teams that participated in the competition was made up of two people. This competition took place entirely on the Hackerearth platform.

The first person was given a problem statement and was required to write a programme code for the same in languages, C, C++ or Java. While the other person was given an incorrect code and was required to debug it accordingly. They were given three hours to complete a given set of questions. Midway through the competition, they were asked to switch their positions and complete the work the other had started. 

DAY 2 
TechTalk: On the second day, TechTalk was organised in the Medical Auditorium. Around 150 students attended the talk where reputed speakers from the Mozilla community were invited. The speakers were, Hrishikesh Raverkar, a tech enthusiast, who is working on Ruby, Php, Js, AWS, and Docker; Gaurav Gahlot, a software engineer at Cybage; Mugdha Adhav, a software engineer at InfraCloud Technologies; Prathamesh Chavan, a computer engineer and an open source enthusiast, Achilles Gaikwad, who works as an associate software maintenance engineer at Red Hat; and Arush Salil, an infrastructure engineer. 

They spoke on various technical topics such as Docker, Devops and LINUX to enhance students’ knowledge.  

The results of Doodler, Technical Quiz and Bug-off were announced and the winners were rewarded with cash prizes as well as other goodies.

The speakers were felicitated with hampers. Overall, the event turned out to be a great success. Each of the participants as well as the club members were greatly encouraged through this event. The club looks forward to the next event.
