Since 2006, teams of students from Auckland University of Technology have worked on UpStage for their final year assessment project. The AUT partnership is co-ordinated through lecturer Anne Philpott (currently being overseen by Bilal Raza), and has been very beneficial to the ongoing development of UpStage – thanks heaps!
In 2014 a team of student web developers from AUT created a new web site for the project, under the tutelage of Gisela Klette. They are: Fan Yang, Matt Jiang, Scott Bakewell and Albin Cyriac – thanks team!
