Season of Usability 2006/2007
Between November 2006 and June 2007, the first Season of Usability took place. After an application phase for F/OSS projects registered on OpenUsability, six student projects mentored by experienced members of OpenUsability were announced in October 2006. Within the next six weeks, about 25 students from all over the world applied to participate.
After intensive work for 3 to 5 months, five student projects were successfully accomplished from the fields of printing, note-taking, document readers, multimedia, and Voice over IP. The results were welcomed by the software projects, and some of the students will continue their work in the future.
