The fifth FLOSS Usability Sprint will be held on November 2-4, 2007 at
Google <http://www.google.com/> in Mountain View, California. At the sprint,
open source developers, usability practitioners, project managers, and users
will gather to discuss methodologies for improving the usability of
Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) and to apply those processes towards
specific projects. The goal is two-fold: To improve the usability of the
participating projects, and to
catalyze<http://www.flossusability.org/wiki.pl?TheBigPicture>greater
shared understanding and ongoing collaboration between the usability
and open source communities.

This will be our fifth sprint, after throwing successful sprints in
February<http://www.flossusability.org/200502/index.html>and
August <http://www.flossusability.org/200508/index.html> 2005, October
2006<http://www.flossusability.org/200610/index.html>,
and March 2007 <http://www.flossusability.org/200703/index.html>. This
upcoming sprint will have the added bonus of being the first organized by
the community itself! As always, our focus will be on working with a
fantastic set of free (libre) / open source (FLOSS) software projects,
focusing especially on users from nonprofit organizations. This year, we'll
also spend some time organizing our first remote usability sprint.
