1  Трудова борса / Търсене / Multimedia Institute's Programmers in Residence pr -: Oct 05, 2004, 00:56

The Multimedia Institute - mi2 invites all free software developers from the Eastern and Southeastern Europe, Cental Asia and Caucausus, and Africa to apply to this call for participation in a one to two month residence program to work on the development of free software.

The mi2lab residence program and work on free software development was conceived as an extension of the Multimedia Institute's successful work in the specific context of bringing together software developers, arts/artists, theorists and broader aspects of cultural production.

A software developer in mi2lab residence can expect a stimulating environment of mi2lab free software developers, the local sound and video art community, and theorists around the GNU GPL based publishing label EGOBOO.bits. The net.culture club mama - the Multimedia Institute's public interface - is a meeting place for the local DJ scene, activists, artists, geeks, nerds and anima afecionados, while through the net.culture club mama regular program an interested developer will get an insight into the recent new media art, tactical media and critical theory production. We believe that free software development in such an environment creates synergies needed to sensitize the software scene to social issues and sensitizing the non-techie activist and art community to the importance of using and the quality of free software.

In the spirit of collaboration familiar from the free software world, we expect applications from developers interested in the development of audio, video and multimedia production tools, and online collaboration software. We are interested in the integration of our collaborative platform TamTam with various related FLOSS projects. TamTam, a wiki clone, was coded in Python and is based on the Twisted Matrix network framework.

The Multimedia Institute will cover all travel expenses, accommodation and per diems for the period of project realization. Developers will be invited for a time period of 30-60 days.

The mi2lab is a comfortably arranged apartment with an Internet link and computers available for work.

The accommodation will be provided in an apartment not far from the mi2lab (10 minutes walk from the mi2lab, 7 minutes walk from the net.culture club mama).
