We welcome applicants of all levels and have had successful contributors come in with no prior programming experience. We have projects of varying scope and complexity from making pages with only HTML/CSS to working on visualizations with various charting libraries to developing apps with MVC frameworks (i.e. Django) that power some of our sub sites and magazines. We especially love applicants with design experience.
If you have any questions about Daily Bruin Online, the application, or the internship, please email the online editor, Michael Zhang, assistant online editor Nathan Smith, or assistant online editor Hongyi Zhang.
