Google Summer of Code 2010 & Me

Project: Improved automated UI testing for Lightning

Organization: Mozilla                                                                           

Mentor: Merike Sell

About My Project
 Lightning brings the Sunbird calendar to the popular email client, Mozilla Thunderbird and the Sea Monkey internet application suite (Sea Monkey is a free and open source cross-platform Internet suite).In my project, I have to integrate existing Mozmill tests into build  process & writing further tests for areas such as testing calendar preferences, display of tasks in different views, conversion between tasks and events, possibly also keyboard shortcuts.

Why Mozilla
 I chose Mozilla because it's a world-class open source browser that is designed from the ground up to support open internet standards across a variety of platforms including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, OS/2, Solaris, and many more. I am very familiar with Mozilla products like Firefox, Thunderbird & Sunbird. I chose this calendar project because a calendar helps us to plan our days, upcoming events, and our life in a very systematic manner. Mozilla Sunbird is a cross-platform calendar application, built upon Mozilla Toolkit. 

About Me
I am Meharuban Mahadeva from Srilanka. My hometown is Batticaloa, it’s in the eastern province of Srilanka. After successfully completing my A Level examination in 2006 in the Mathematics Stream,  I joined University of Moratuwa in 2007 to do an Engineering Degree. In the second year I have to select a field so, I selected Computer Science & Engineering as my field because my interests were in Computer Software, Computer Networking & Electronics. Now, I am in Level 3 & doing my internship at Aepona International Lanka PVT LTD. In Aepona, I got familiar with Selenium, Ant, Tomcat, Jmock, Junit & oracle. I am a Sun Certified Java Programmer & a Cisco Certified Network Associate. My Specialties are in Java, C/C++, PHP, XHTML, CSS, XML and MySQL.
 The QA stuffs, I got familiar during my internship period motivated me to take this automated testing project.

  I am very happy to do this project & want to have a good experience.

Google Summer of Code 2010

“University of Moratuwa becomes World’s Hot Spot” was the words I heard when University of Moratuwa got highest number of accepted student proposals in Google Summer of Code(GSOC) 2008.The above statement is not only applicable for 2008 & it continued in 2009 and again now in 2010 as well.  In GSOC 2010, University of Moratuwa got 26 accepted Students proposals and I am very happy to say that I am also a student of University of Moratuwa who got accepted for Google Summer of Code 2010.

Out of those 26 students 22 are from Department of Computer Science & Engineering which is my department and 12 out of those 22 were obtained by my CSE 07 Batch. Furthermore Electronic & Telecommunication Department got one & Faculty of Information Technology got 3.

My project is “Improved automated UI testing for Lightning”. Lightning brings the Sunbird calendar to the popular email client, Mozilla Thunderbird and the SeaMonkey internet application suite (SeaMonkey is a free and open source cross-platform Internet suite).
I want to thank Merike Sell who is the mentor for my project & Calendar lead developer Philipp Kewisch who is willing to help me in this project. I also want to thank Ms. Vishaka Nanayakkara Head of the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, who motivated CSE students to participate in Google Summer of Code.

I am very happy to do this project & want to have a good experience.
