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 (Kubernetes), without having to learn the internals of how to build containers from scratch or understand sys admin enough to deploy production-quality apps that can scale on demand.

OpenShift makes using containers and orchestration accessible by letting you focus on code instead of writing Dockerfiles and running Docker builds all day. With the integrated Source-to-Image open source project, the platform automatically creates containers while requiring only the URL for your source code repository.  

We can’t wait to help you dive into OpenShift’s container and orchestration capabilities & build apps for excellent health.

We're here to help. If you have any questions about the hackathon, post on the discussion forum or email and we'll respond as soon as we can.
