Drupal Student Project Kicked Off

Filed under

In the scope of OpenUsability’s Season of Usability programme, another student project has just been kicked off: Bevan Rudge, a student of computer science at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, is going to support the content management platform Drupal usability-wise.

This Season of Usability project was initiated on Bevan’s own initiative. As an active Drupal contributor he realised that getting usability into the core is important, but he was lacking practical experience. By participating in a mentored usability project, he now gets an opportunity to enhance his skills, and to give them back to the community: Bevan plans to develop a usability guide and design patterns for the developers.
