Prior to this course, I've never been involved with open source projects. This course has opened up my eyes to the Mozilla community and I'm really impressed with the work that the Mozilla community members have done in their spare time. By far, this is one of the most interesting courses I've ever taken at Seneca and I can't express greater gratitude to be given the opportunity to be part of this fascinating project.

Other Contributions

Functional Testing

Calendar Stuff

  • Started on the project and then took over Firefox Performance Testing : A Python framework for Windows
  • Built Thunderbird to find out the problems Eva Or was having because I wasn't helping her much by speculating what the problem was without physically seeing the problem/build
    • It built successfully on my comp with the the files required (.mozconfig, build files etc.) but the same files didn't build for Eva Or. According to her, Clint found out that it was a debugging problem.
    • Looked into the old itip files, wanted to help Eva Or with it but due to time constraints, this is impossible (Not a contribution)

Created this template which is a cleaner look for the main page
