Spring 2001 EcoAccess Technology Associate Internship

EcoAccess, a public charity working to enhance public understanding
of our natural environment, is offering a volunteer Technology
Associate internship program for people seeking the opportunity to
enhance their software development skills.

Selected Technology Associates will receive a loaner Linux system to
allow them to develop free open source software for the EcoAccess
database-backed web site.

Designed for Associates who have some programming experience,
the internship runs from January 8 through May 4.  Our software is
published on SourceForge and licensed under the General Public

How to Apply

The internship is open to anyone who has any programming experience
or training, with preference to those residing in the Triangle area of
North Carolina.  Apply by e-mail to

Please include the following information:

 * Your name
 * Preferred e-mail address
 * A summary of your education and relevant work experience, if any
 * Your experience with open source software, if any
 * Your other time commitments between January and May

If we are interested in working with you, we will request a code

More About the Internship

Our Technology Associates will learn how to develop for Zope, a
leading Open Source web application server.  Part of the internship
will be devoted to learning and improving Zope itself, including
documenting aspects of its interfaces.  The other part will be devoted
to writing applications in Python, Java and C to support the charitable
EcoAccess project.

Technology Associates must have at least dial-up Internet
connectivity.  Four interns who are in the Triangle area of North Carolina
(Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) can receive fully-configured development
machines for use during the internship.  (Associates may also use
their own Linux machines if they prefer.)  The loaner machines are
best described as tomorrow's software running on yesterday's hardware.

Our Technology Associates will get hands-on experience building
object-oriented transactional web applications.  Specifically, our
Associates will write programs in Java, C and Python that run on Linux
and use PostgreSQL databases.

This internship is made possible through the generosity of several
members of the Triangle Linux Users Group (TriLUG) who donated the
hardware for our loaner machines.  We appreciate the help!
