During the COVID19 pandemic of 2020, musicians, magicians, actors, etc did what they do best from home to help society cope with staying at home. We’re an award winning team of coders that build things really fast. Therefore, we decided to do what we do best: build out app ideas and proofs of concepts.
The pandemic will change how our world works and how we work in it. This will require rethinking existing software, workflows and design paradigms. We pledge to come up with a new idea/paradigm/software every week until the end of 2020. The #covidCoder is the hashtag we’ll be using to mark the projects, posts, and media created to showcase our ideas.
Many of the projects will be completely open source. Some were either in development or have outside dependencies, so those will be closed source. For the open source ones, this means the code, the architecture, the app design, app media assets will all be up on our founder’s github repo. Most of what you see with the #covidCoder hashtag should be free to steal, integrate and build however you see fit. We’re not doing this for money, but rather to help prepare the world for the changes coming. (But we are a team for hire, so if you do like this stuff and want us to build some version of it for you, feel free to Get In Touch.)
Any other coder can join us on this journey. Just be prepared that if you use the #covidCoder hashtag on anything you create, for the most part, you’re agreeing to open source the ideas and associated work. We understand that always won’t be possible (as with a few of our projects), but the intention should be that most work will be open.
How long will we work on each project? Depends on how much interest is expressed for each idea.Our goal is to spark conversation and excitement with our ideas and implementations, not necessarily to launch every one of these ideas. Some will be horrible and some will be good. It’s up to the world to decide which is which. Therefore, we’ll work on them for the full week of their creation and then decide what to do with them after that. Some will lag, while some will stay active. We’ll add a status to each project blurb below so you know which ones are active or not, plus you can always reach out to us on twitter if you like to see one get more love.
