Exactly 1 year after the start of compulsory working from home, my employer organizes ‘the week of job satisfaction’. In several live sessions colleagues talk about their hobbies. Thursday March 18, 2021 I will present my adventure of the last three years: open source as caregiver for insulin-dependent diabetes.
Contents of the session
My girlfriend was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three years ago. Bad luck, you cannot prevent it and you cannot cure it (yet). It was a shock and a matter of adjusting. I got involved with AndroidAPS, a progressive open source project developed by a worldwide network of diabetics. AndroidAPS is an open source app for people living with insulin-dependent diabetes that acts as an artificial pancreas system (APS). Great results, great community support, and free to use. My girlfriend lives healthier and avoids emergencies by preventing hypos. In the session I will tell about our journey, the results, choices in hardware/software and I will show you some of the (near) future. Want to join?
