UbuconEU Sintra 2019 speaker: VOST Portugal
VOST Portugal (Virtual Operations Support Team) is a digital volunteering association that informs populations during emergencies. With a broad scope of professionals (from firefighters to developers) VOST Portugal was founded in August 2018, and now has more than 110 volunteers contributing to the safety of populations in Portugal.
VOST: Open Source meets Emergencies
Information is, more and more, key to help population in case of emergency. Open source solutions, that are designed and implemented by digital volunteers, put data front and centre of the experience, creating tools that can be used by everyone.
