Event Details

The aim of this event is to 'bridge the gap' between NGOs, government groups and the open source volunteer community.

The intention is for members of groups such as Ushahidi, Open Street Map and CrisisCommons to meet and connect with members of the Red Cross, State Emergency Services and Police and Fire Services, so that in a time of crisis the open source community can connect quickly with these crisis responders to assist in delivering tools that they can use; as an example, to help run information/call centres.

This is a one day event that will start with presentations from the different groups attending and then a break out into groups of development camps and also training sessions for people new to the different software tools.

There are many types of volunteers that are welcomed to this event.

Types of volunteers:

  • Technical - Software developers (Python, PHP, Ruby, etc), web developers, web designers, user experience/user interface experts, geocoders, geo mappers, GIS experts, technologists, beta testers
  • New Media - Bloggers, vloggers, videographers, podcasters, photographers, social media trainers, social media users, collaborators, crowdsourcers
  • Organizational - Organizers, open source community planners, project managers, emergency response planners, crisis communicators
  • Other - Researchers, lawyers, trainers, technical writers, event planners, translators, innovators, entrepreneurs, anyone with a laptop
