A 5K-Star Community, An Anti-Coronavirus Battle
In January 2020, a group of enthusiastic developers founded an open source community named Wuhan2020 on GitHub, which is aimed to collect the information of hospitals, hotels, factories, logistics, donations, precaution, therapies, dynamics, etc. Through unified collection and publication process, all parties could share the information, and the social resources could be effectively allocated.
"Trust, Transparency, Technology." We built Wuhan2020 to achieve these values.
This way of collaboration proved effective. On GitHub, Wuhan2020 was among trending repositories, and has gained over 5,000 stars.
While gaining widespread attention, Wuhan2020 connects over 3,000 volunteers worldwide, including developers, product managers, designers, data analysts, information collectors, translators, media workers, and students. By staff's working together under the well-arranged mechanism, this community managed to build a digital defensive line against the epidemic." (https://www.bagevent.com/event/6368833/p/402890?)
