From the 18th to the 24th of March the Open Geneva took place. A huge event promoting new technologies, and more widely many projects that would improve people’s everyday life.
At Evolusys we encourage employees’ personal initiatives, especially when they are targeting a humanitarian purpose.
And consequently, our colleague Damien Fangous had the pleasure to participate to the event as developer for a special Hackaton. Six days of intense work, with multidisciplinary team of friends worried of the same issue : developing a serious game to help patients suffering from Cystic Fibrosis, a very serious desease.
By using open source framework, Damien contributed to the creation of a webapp simulating the everyday life of a patient, and the sometimes hard to find balance between having social life and the physical constrains of the illness. This game can give great insights to the patients themselves but also to sensitize their friends and families.
We hope this amazing initiative will get out of the simple project status and meet a well deserved success !
