Codit Helps Socially Isolated People Covid-19 Crisis Hackathon

Last weekend some of our dedicated team volunteered to use their coding skills to help isolated elderly people in a Covid-19 crisis hackathon.

Four of our Codit family came virtually together and brainstormed ideas to help people who are isolated during the Covid-19 crisis. They came up with the solution “Social TV” which connects elderly people with their friends and family.

Social TV uses Azure serverless to connect friends and family with elderly people. This technology allows friends and family to securely send photos and messages to their elderly relatives while also ensuring their relatives have a seamless experience. This eliminates the problem that many elderly people have wherein they need assistance with new technologies such as video conferencing or social media. There is no need to install an app or make any changes, it runs securely and seamlessly.
