Open Tech School
Open Source / Online Community / Technology / Learning
Some time ago, a brief on Open Source Design caught my eye. It was a call for the re-design of the Open Tech School (OTS) website. In sort OTS is: “A distributed community initiative. Organizing welcoming and inclusive code learning happenings. With real people in the real world…” (source). It has active chapters in nine different cities spread across various countries.
My point of contact was Giorgia, co-founder of OTS Berlin. She provided me with a wealth of information, gathered through live user interviews. This was especially helpful for restructuring the new version and emphasizing desired elements. Through various feedback circles, we arrived at the following design.
