== Projects ==
This is a project-oriented course working directly with the Mozilla (Firefox/Thunderbird) and communities. Each of these communities maintains a huge codebase (millions of lines of code) which has been developed over a number of years and which is being actively improved by hundreds of contributors from many different companies/organizations and countries. This software is written in several languages, including C/C++, JavaScript, Java, and various scripting languages (bash, perl, and python). The software is cross-platform and works on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.
You'll select a project from a list of potential projects developed in consultation with Mozilla and -- practical, needed projects -- and work in direct communication with other developers. The potential projects list includes programming, localization, build system, automated testing, documentation, bug-fixing, and feature enhancement projects. Everyone works on something different (i.e., there are no fixed projects).
