DPS909 and OSD600 Fall 2009 Potential Projects
This year's open source projects are focused on Mozilla and the Open Web. Students are allowed to choose from the projects listed below, or another Mozilla bug/project in consultation with your professor and the Mozilla community. Students are not permitted to suggest their own projects.
Students will work on individual work, but are also expected to collaborate with others in the class. Remember that in addition to your own project, you must also earn 20% of your grade through contributions to other projects.
When choosing your project, don't be scared off of something because you don't know how to do it. You'll learn as you go, and it's most important that you are passionate and interested in what you choose. If you see nothing you like, speak with your professor and make your interests and skills known so we can find something else.
NOTE: This project is large enough for 5 to 10 students to all work on in parallel, and will be mentored by processing.js's Al MacDonald and your professors.
A complete list of potential student projects is available here. You are encouraged to browse through this list. If you find nothing, or have a specific interest/request, please speak to your professors, who can help you find another bug/feature request.
Here are a few examples of good projects from this list, grouped by technology/product:
Build System, Compiler Optimizations
