Hey guys is there anything we as devs could do regarding this covid-19 situation in terms of our technical skills? Like any project or something for making awareness at global or local level, or some status update regarding various things/items that are affected by this pandemic?

I am looking for ideas or currently ongoing projects that i could contribute to. Currently my tech stack is limited to java, python , android and a little bit of basic data analysis, but i am fluid enough to learn and contribute.

    https://codevid19.com you might want to look for projects there.

    HackZurich is also hosting a 72h hackathon in a few days: https://codevscovid19.org

    Would also be interested. Maybe y'all can start posting ideas either here or somewhere else. Let's help people and why not maybe even make a successful business out of it.

    If you have spare hardware you can fold at home. Look it up. Join and crunch for cure to it.

    There could be an app to determine if you could go to a place and be able to stay at least 2m/6ft from other people if everyone installed it and allowed it to use their location data.

    this is what we need.

    something simple yet efficient.

    not $40000 ventilators that come with 6 weeks lead time.

    @spongessuck thats a nice idea but it would blow up any server that runs it. maybe an offline solution involving some kind of servers would do. I will look into it
