WUHAN2020 Official Announcement 2020.1.29

Dear friends and volunteers, we are the core organizers of wuhan2020, a project on GitHub aiming to serve this combat against 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is an Open Source project constructed and maintained by all of us for a better and more effective collaboration that assists the self-organized rescue. The things we are working on:

  1. to create a data service for real-time synchronization among hospitals, factories and procurement.
  2. to call on more people to participate in this project with their professional skills and various resources.
  3. to proceed with our collaborative tasks and constantly stay motivated by the spirit of Open Source community.

The online web entrance of our project: Information Collection Platform for Wuhan COVID-19 Epidemic Prevention (in Chinese 新型冠状病毒防疫信息平台) https://wh.opensource-service.cn/

Open Source & Collaboration

Thanks for your support, now we already have more than two thousand volunteers.

Based on the idea of Open Source community: contribution-oriented role, we don't have a hierarchical management, instead, everyone is equal in this flat structure.

However, in this tough period, we have to take into account the efficiency and effectiveness, so a certain management method intervention is necessary, like the management by objects, control, coordination and communication.

Project application, Project assignment, Project management

We develop core data services for this combat against COVID-19, and provide a robust resource pool. We look forward to all effective sub-projects and teams initialized by individuals and regulated by core team.

Project application & Project assignment

Core team recruits volunteers and regulates the entire project wuhan2020, including the work for risk avoidance: when someone is about to launch a new sub-project, he or she can create a git repository and then carry out the development; If this sub-project is planned to settle on our Github , evaluation is required. With approval, you can fork it to our project. Or you can directly create a new repository under our project and subsequently make it authorized.

Meet us on GitHub:http://github.com/wuhan2020

For matters concerning the sub-project launch, please contact our core organizer team with specification of project name and function description.

For those sub-projects that already settled on our Github project, we will adequately promote it and meanwhile designate some volunteers to take charge of its operation.

In case that some inappropriate information (e.g. commercial usage, advertisement, confidential, rebellion, etc. ) is present in a sub-project, or the sub-project retires, we will remove it promptly.

If a sub-project encounters some problems and difficulties in its implementation, we will provide technically the corresponding support.

Project Management and Communication

Slack is now the main tecnical communication platform,GitHub is our platform of development and collaboration, where our tecnical team mainly settle.
