     2= Coding Projects =
     3These are bigger projects that will require more effort and commitment to compel
     4
     5Some things to keep in mind when working on these projects or planning new modules or major features:
     6 * Prepare a detailed [BluePrint/Guidelines Blue Print] design to outline your design approach for the project
     7 * Engage with the [MailingList Sahana Eden Mailing List] to share your ideas and get input on the project (not everything is documented on the wiki - but if you are committed to working on a project the community can help point you in the right direction!)
     8 * Familiarise yourself with the [DeveloperGuidelines#Framework Sahana Eden Framework] and make use of it - no need to reinvent the wheel :)
    69 * Consider what other FOSS tools exist, that could be installed alongside Eden.
    710 * Look at tools and libraries already in use in Eden, e.g. jQuery and ExtJS for UI work.
