The CAISI Project: Can software developers end chronic homelessness?
Joined: Sep 27, 2006
I hope you don't mind, I'd like to briefly introduce our organization, and if any of you have any ideas on how to achieve our goals or want to pitch in we'd be much obliged...
The CAISI Project was created to respond to the critical issue of chronic homelessness, and to help develop new solutions. Working with our homeless clients, agencies, shelters, hospitals and other advocates, the CAISI open development system is designed to prevent clients from slipping through cracks in the healthcare system. Building on the Canadian Ministry of Health approved OSCAR platform ensures security and privacy, and with current funding we provide the software and hardware for free or at cost to our partners. We eventually hope to see independent versions of CAISI in use around the World.
The biggest challenge will be the integrator connecting different groups and information systems, and ensuring a smooth data transfer with appropriate privacy and security. CAISI has a release early and often approach based on regular feedback from clients, partners and IT professionals to improve the end-user experience. Independent modules and bugs are always in need of work, and new ideas and tools are certainly welcome.
We invite everyone to offer their suggestions, while experienced web-designers and developers who know Java (J2EE), Spring, Hibernate, Struts, Ant, Eclipse and MySQL are the most needed. If you have any questions or want to use the software please contact us, we look forward to hearing from you.... :-)
You are welcome to announce your company and products, but please do so in the Blatant Advertising forum set aside for this purpose. Also, you are still required to have a real display name like the rest of us please.
