We're expanding our internship programs for Appropedia - for those who want to learn about wikis and make a difference at the same time. One of the programs I'm looking forward to is our web development internship - for those wanting to get experience with MediaWiki and/or WordPress and Python. The model is that we have a team with interns and a number of mentors/advisors.
At the moment we have a good number of advisors, and one intern for the (northern) summer! If we find another intern or two, even better, but the main thing is that we've now got things rolling, and will continue the program into the new academic year.
A little more info:
- You will use your tech skills for good - helping to build a comprehensive database of knowledge for sustainability and solutions to poverty.
- Appropedia is the leading wiki for sustainability, with a focus on practical solutions.
- The only fixed requirements are a desire to learn and a willingness to try.
- This is a global, online project, and you can work from anywhere in the world with internet access.
- Start date is flexible - the program begins on May 1, but individual interns may start later.
Please pass the word around!
