Watch This Page for More Information

This page is a work in progress for our potential participation in the 2019 Google Summer of Code. Per the timelines, we won't know until late February of 2019 if we have been accepted.

For now, interested students can review information about the previous year and our general guidelines for GSOC. Watch this page for more information in 2019.

Overview

Fluid is an open source community of designers and developers who help improve the usability and accessibility of the open web. We contribute to a variety of open source projects (e.g. jQuery UI, GPII, PhET), and work on our own projects including:

  • Infusion: A JavaScript application framework for developing flexible user interfaces.
  • FLOEProvides the resources to personalize how we each learn and to address barriers to learning 
  • Social Justice Repair Kit: The goal is to support youth at risk who have learning differences to re-engage in education through an inclusively designed social justice platform that integrates authentic project-based learning.
  • The Inclusive Design Guide

Fluid Infusion is built on top of jQuery, providing all the stuff you need to create user interfaces that are incredibly flexible, accessible, and easy-to-use. Infusion is an application framework and a suite of user interface components built with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In contrast to many other user interface toolkits, Infusion components aren't black boxes--they're built to be modified, adapted, and changed to suit your application or context. Taking a "one size fits one" approach, Infusion even lets end-users customize their experience with the UI Options component.

We're looking for students to collaborate with us on the Google Summer of Code 2019 program. Working with Fluid gives you a chance to learn more about accessibility, usability, and inclusivity while writing code with cutting-edge open web technologies. Create cool stuff and make a real impact on users at the same time!

For information about the various ways we communicate with each other, see our Get Involved wiki page.
