A talk: Software Engineering for Firefox

I’m giving a talk at Monash University on Thursday, to students in a 2nd year software engineering class and anyone else who wants to come along, about Firefox development.

Here is a draft version of the slides.

Draft slides

(I wanted to embed a Scribd widget but I can’t get it to work.) I used PowerPoint to make them but I’ve assiduously avoided the common (and widely pilloried) PowerPoint style — there isn’t a single bullet point. Each slide also contains the presenter notes, which indicates more or less what I’m going to say, but don’t worry, I won’t be reading them verbatim. I’ve included those notes because if you read the slides without them you’ll miss a lot of the details.

I’d appreciate any feedback that people might have about these slides.  Thanks.

  1. I like the “WTFs per minute” measurement :-)

    Not sure about the phrase “reasonable timezone” as that implies some timezones are unreasonable!

      Dan: if I have to get up at 3am (my time) to dial into a 10am (California time) meeting, my timezone feels pretty unreasonable :)

  2. Great slides!
