Shippensburg University Students Study Mozilla

Tuesday April 18th, 2000

Shippensburg University, here in Pennsylvania, is offering CS students an opportunity to participate in a large-scale development project, through work with Mozilla. Richard Pizzarro, Netscape engineer and Pennsylvania resident, helped set up the project for Dr. Carol Wellington's Software Engineering class. Richard hopes to start up additional programs throughout Pennsylvania's higher education system. [side note - I would like to do something at the University (Penn State) in my town to introduce people to Moz. If there's anyone here interested in helping, let me know.]

Mozilla is a really a great introduction to large scale software development. It is an involved piece of work, but it offers plenty of opportunity for contributions across a range of abilities. You don't have to be a C++ developer to be a valuable contributor, and at the same time the availability of the source code and developers makes it perfect for someone who wants to really dive into the complexities of the project.

Didn't another university also have a software engineering class working on Mozilla before? Anyone know which university it was and if any good contributions came of it?

My memory is rust, but I think that there are at least TWO other classes mentioned at MZ before.
