Date: Sun, 19 Mar 2017 10:35:27 +1100
From: Linux Australia President <president(a)linux.org.au>
Organization: Linux Australia
Cartesian Creative, a Melbourne-based design and software agency, are
partnering with Linux Australia, offering up to $4k matched funding on
Grants aimed at improving the user experience (UX) of open source
software projects. Matched dollar for dollar by Linux Australia, this
means that UX improvement projects could receive up to $AUD 8k in funding.
Duncan Macneil, Senior UX Analyst at Cartesian Creative was excited at
the value the partnership will deliver.
"Open Source projects don't often get the luxury of time spent on UX
concerns. By co-sponsoring this grant, Cartesian Creative recognise the
contribution Free, Libre and Open Source projects make in the tech
community, along with the importance of compelling user experiences."
Linux Australia President, Kathy Reid, was delighted with the partnership.
"User experience is an often undervalued component of software, hardware
and digital projects, and time and again in the open source community we
see products which are very functional, but barely usable. We're
thrilled to be partnering with a company with such strong UX credentials
to help improve open source UX. Innovation truly does happen at the
intersection of art and science."
