Migrate your Code Healthy app to a new OpenShift account

Hey health hackers,

Making a great submission video

We know you’re focused on building your health app right now, but don't forget about your submission video. It's often the first (and sometimes only!) thing that judges and voters review.

A good video tells the story behind your submission, providing a clear and concise explanation of what your app is and does. Here are some tips and a list of screencasting tools:

  • Establish your elevator pitch. In the first few seconds of your video, explain why your app (or app idea) is awesome. You can get into the details of how it works later on in the video,…

How open source container tech can impact healthcare

Welcome to the Code Healthy with OpenShift Hackathon! We’re so excited that you’ve decided to join our hackathon, and we can’t wait to see what you’ll build.

At Red Hat, we believe that creating open source platforms allows the tech community to develop the best software possible. We recently launched a series of films highlighting the open source movement’s impact on healthcare, including initiatives that promote open patient data and provide 3D-printed prosthetics.

Health is a great context to start exploring OpenShift’s open source capabilities. We designed OpenShift to allow developers to take full advantage of containers (Docker) and orchestration…
