Ongoing Mozilla Student Projects

November 20, 2012 § Leave a comment

It is that time of the year already. No, I do not mean Diwali or Christmas Shopping Frenzy, but Mozilla Student Projects. A number of students have started projects, and I will try and post updates regularly.

As you will see, for the moment, students seem to have a few difficulties with communication. So, here is a general message to all students working on these projects: please work in the open! Use your issue tracker, your git, communicate on IRC, blog about your work, etc. Working in silence is a good way to ensure that your project will also die in silence.

Running on time

MSP #10: Map Your Friends

Start date: October 30th, 2012
Team: [Guys, I’d like to have your names!]
Objective: A group of people wants to be able to track each other on a map in real-time. Useful for sport, games, but also rescue teams.
Message to the team: Currently on hold due to exams, but early results look quite encouraging. Sorry it took me so long to review your code. Keep up the good work, but please, please, separate cleanly your JavaScript from your PHP code.

Too early to tell
