Cómo ayudar con AndroidAPS

AndroidAPS opera enteramente en esfuerzos voluntarios y sin personal remunerado.

Los desarrolladores son los padres, guardianes, seres queridos y personas con diabetes trabajando juntos para desarrollar y mejorar una solución a una falta muy común. Los desarrolladores de donan su tiempo gratis, pero es un poco injusto esperar que enfrenten costos para hacer algo tan sorprende con código abierto y libre para todos.

Para probar totalmente una nueva plataforma los desarrolladores necesitan tener un teléfono de repuesto y una bomba de repuesto que no puede utilizarse en un ser humano, hasta que esté estable. Nuevos modelos necesitan pruebas según estén disponibles. Parte del dinero donado es necesario también para los costos logísticos de transporte de estas piezas desde los países origen a los desarrolladores. A veces también es bueno contribuir a los costos de los desarrolladores para que abandonen sus habitaciones oscuras y vayan a conocerse en conferencias y eventos para dejar sus cerebros creativos y analíticos rebotan entre sí.

Puedo escribir código! ¿Cómo puedo participar?

¡Síiiii! Look at the issues, ask in the gitter channel, there is always a lot to do! Pick a small task at first and do your first pull request! :)

I know the system and can write documentation!

Great, this is a highly appreciated thing and a good way to pay it foreward!

  • The old gitter channel regarding the wiki can be found here: AndroidAPSwiki/Lobby. Instead, you can now also contact the documentation team via the new email address: wiki@androidaps.org.
  • A guide how to do commits on English wiki can be found here: How to make a PR. Other languages are only translated from english and can’t be edited for consistency reasons.

I do speak multiple languages and whant to translate the app or the documentation

  • If you want to translate the app to other languages (thank you), please use crowdin.
  • If you want to translate the wiki to other languages (thank you), please use crowdin.

Just sign up to CROWDIN, click your language, wait for admin authorization and go ahead!

I’ve got cash I’d like to donate, how do I do that?

PayPal: [donations@androidaps.org](donations@androidaps.org)  

What is the money used for?

The money is NOT paid to anyone for their work! It is used to keep the costs for the developers low when organizing meetings. We try to be very transparent. Here’s an example from 2018:

  • European Dev Meetup in Prague end of May 2018:
  • hiring a room plus internet
  • equipment
  • food / coffee
  • in the unlikely case the above will be fully covered and some money remains: travel expenses for those who have to travel a longer distance. (Some devs from other continents will attend but are in Europe already at that time, so travel costs will be kept low.)

I’ve got spare equipment, where do I send it?

We are currently collecting “will be provided later” to begin distributing them for testing. At the end of the process, any leftover equipment will be donated to one of the Pay-it-Forward facebook groups that exist to support the T1 community. If you want to donate spare equipment, e-mail developers@androidaps.org and we’ll send you an address.

I don’t have cash or equipment, how can I help?

Skills needed include graphic design, UX design, translators, wiki editors or simply paying it forward by answering the simple questions in gitter & Facebook to allow developers the time and space to focus on the harder stuff.
