We’re proud to announce that we’ll be supporting the world’s first Digital Staff Access Hackathon, which will be held virtually September 21-22.
The hackathon is organized by INTEROPen with support from the UK’s National Health System (NHS), the world’s fifth-largest employer with 1.5 million employees. The NHS has been an early champion of verifiable credentials and is currently using our technology to power their own digital staff passport. The event is open to anyone who wants to find out how to use digital credentials to build solutions around staff onboarding, access control, passwordless log-in, cross-organizational data sharing, patient journeys, or other healthcare-related use cases.
The hackathon team will provide attendees with 14 pre-defined credential types, including passport data, medical qualifications, doctor registration, right to work, training credentials, and criminal record checks. There will also be three predefined use case scenarios for onboarding new doctors, moving staff to new roles, and registering volunteers.
Participants will be able to write their own web apps and services to issue these credentials, request and verify proofs, and authenticate users. They will also be able to create their own credential schemas and use cases beyond those outlined above.
In addition to the resources provided by INTEROPen and the NHS, Evernym will provide participants with access to:
- A dedicated Evernym developer toolkit created specifically for the event;
- A walkthrough of the install, setup, and use of Verity and our developer toolkit, by Evernym’s Vladan Divac;
- A verifiable credential masterclass, designed by Evernym’s Andy Tobin; and,
- Hands-on support from the Evernym team in a Zoom breakout room and an online Ryver forum.
With over 200 attendees already registered, it should be a fantastic event and a major milestone for digital staff passports. To learn more and register your free ticket, visit INTEROPen’s Eventbrite page.
We hope to see you there, and we can’t wait to see what you build!
