Project XCoV19

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Thursday October 1, 2020
8:00pm to Oct 31, 9:00pm IST
Event is hosted online

Event Description

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

About Project XCoV19 Hacktoberfest: Fix Healthcare using Opensource

Project XCoV19 aims to build a software that guides patients to the nearest hospital, streamlines patient flow, and models the spread of the virus in order to better anticipate hospital needs.

Current hospital management systems (HMS) are not designed for Covid19 like emergency situations. So we use a novel approach because we leverage a model that is flexible, decoupled, low cost, and requires minimal training time.
