Microsoft is a proud sponsor of NurseHack4Health - a 3 day virtual hackathon from Nov. 13-15, 2020 to leverage technology and help improve access to reliable, trusted information. This hackathon is made possible by the collaboration between Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, SONSIEL, and devup. Read below for more details, and register at https://www.nursehack4health.org/ by Nov. 9 to reserve a spot

 

The challenge: Information about the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly changing, and gaining access to reliable public health information has been challenging, highlighting a need for improved communication and trustworthy resources. 

 

The hackathon: This event presents a rare opportunity to bring together individuals with a diverse set of ideas and skills - nurses, other healthcare professionals, engineers, IT experts and innovators - to problem-solve in a supporting, inspiring and innovative environment. This is an open source hackathon being hosted on Microsoft Teams, and using GitHub for solution repositories.

 

The participant's experience: Participants will focus on how technology can be leveraged to create better outcomes for all in the most pressing areas of education and communication. Central ideas of focus may include:

  • Ensuring the health and safety of students and teachers in the classroom
  • Relaying to the public the importance of vaccines
  • Breaking down racial disparities and social inequities
  • Sharing best practices across healthcare providers and facilities
  • And more

Participants will also:

  • Work alongside Microsoft and architects from the dev community
  • Bring existing skills around HTML/JavaScript, ASP.NET, Java, SQL or NoSQL
  • Have access to free Azure services, Power BI, and Power Apps during the duration of the hackathon

 

Pre-hackathon training: The hackathon is supported by Microsoft mentors to help answer technical questions. To get a jump start on GitHub, Teams, Power Apps, and Power Virtual Agents bots, join the Cloud Skills Challenge for curated self-learning modules covering these topics. Track your progress against others on the leaderboard.

 

During the hackathon, the following technologies are expected to surface:

  • AI-Driven Software Development
  • Progressive Web Apps
  • Internet of Things for Healthcare - Connecting Devices, Enhancing Accessibility
  • Blockchain
  • AR/VR/MR - The Use of Immersive Technologies
  • Low/No-Code Development - Development Using GUIs (Power Platform)

 

All participants are welcomed: Despite the event being called a hackathon, this is not just about coding, it's about community. Whether you are new to hackathons or a veteran, there are plenty of ways to get involved, and it's a great opportunity to learn. All participants are welcomed!
