Today is the first day of the semester for students at Michigan State University. A group of 4 to 5 students from Michigan State’s CSE Capstone course will be working with Mozilla to move the preferences from a dialog window to within the content area of the browser.
This work is done as part of a course at Michigan State that computer science students take before they graduate. The students work with companies within industry to get some more real-world experience and build their professional network. The course is officially called “CSE 498: Collaborative Design”, but the informal and popular name is “the Capstone course”.
Stephen Horlander has put together some fantastic designs for the students to reference and build towards. Blair McBride and I will be helping to mentor the students throughout the semester.
Here’s to a great semester!
Update: The students working on the project are Devan Sayles, Jon Rietveld, Owen Carpenter, and Zuhao (Joe) Chen. Welcome aboard!
