Celeste Paul (seele): Student Applications Open for 2009 Season of Usability
Are you a student of design, usability, human factors, or other HCI-related field? Are you interested in working on an open source project? For 10-15 hours a week between June 1 and August 31, you could work with an experiences usability mentor on a fun and interesting design project! An added bonus is the $1000 USD internship stipend at the end of the project.
The OpenUsability Season of Usability is a series of sponsored student projects to encourage students of usability, user-interface design, and interaction design to get involved with Free/Libre/Open-Source Software (FLOSS) projects. Inspired by Google’s Summer of Code™, OpenUsability offers sponsored student projects. Other than the Google projects that address developers, they aim at students of usability, user-interface design, and interaction design. Students experience the interdisciplinary and collaborative development of user interface solutions in international software projects while getting into OSS development.
This year we are happy to support student opportunities from these open source projects:
