Project description

We are looking for a Python developer to work on an innovative collaborative multi-touch project at QUT's Cube lab, from now until the end of the year. The Cube flexible interaction and collaboration framework (CubIT) aims to facilitate the interaction between QUT’s academics and students and the general public by providing easy, intuitive access to the Cube infrastructure. CubIT will allow users to flexibly and spontaneously present and share their work, and collaborate with others on a set of large multi-touch displays. Users will be able to spontaneously display presentations, videos and visualisations of their work in an interactive manner, and interact with their work environment through various means (Multi-touch displays, Smartphones & Tablets, Web/Desktop Client).


Experience in object-oriented development and design is essential (junior to intermediate level), experience in Python development is highly desirable, experience developing multi-touch applications including an understanding of Kivy and TUIO are welcome.
