Ian Hayward, co-founder of Glaxstar (of Glubble fame) has announced the launch of XUL School an online education program for developers and enthusiasts interested in learning Firefox add-ons development at a professional level.
A 95-page tutorial e-book (in PDF format, $19), aimed to newbies and experienced developers alike, teaches “how to write industrial strength Add-on code while ensuring you remain a good citizen to the Firefox Add-on developer community”.
XUL School will also offer an e-course consisiting of eight exercises sold separately each including e-mail tutoring by a Glaxstar engineer. Students who successfully complete the eight courses, will attain XUL School certification. Pricing has not been set yet.
