Bio

Fortunately, I have been introduced to Mozilla early after my graduation. After reading about Mozilla and The Mozilla Manifesto, I got connected to its ideology, mission and values.

I am currently working as Technologist at SFLC.In.

Pledge:

I pledge to keep the internet free from discrimination.

Previous Work:

I have volunteered and mentored for few WebVR events in Hyderabad.

I have organized a Firefox 57 release party during Firefox Sprint.

I have organized an Addon Hackathon at BITS Pilani Hyderabad Campus and 8 addons were uploaded in that hackathon.

Participated in Digital Citizen Summit 2017.

As part of "Aadhaar Campaign" in India, I have organised three events in Hyderabad. One of the event is cover in local media. To escape the threats posed by Aadhaar, limit its usage: Researcher

Future plans/goals:

Aadhaar Campaign - Mozilla Advocacy

Read more about Mozilla's statement on Aadhaar issue at Aadhaar isn’t progress — it’s dystopian and dangerous and Why do you need Aadhaar to investigate a lost package? .

This campaign helps reach more people to address tech critic issues of Aadhaar and Mozilla's stance on it in terms of data protection and citizen privacy.

Tools for Activists

Planning to organize "Tools for Activists" events.

Open Web for Social Good

Promoting the usage Open Web tools to increase productivity and efficiency of the work done towards social good. Read more about this [here].(https://shashikanth171.github.io/Open-Web-for-Social-Good/)
