Software developers - Freedom of choice "(For developers only)"

Onderstaande tekst is vertaald vanuit het Nederlands(Origineel) naar het Engels door Priscilla Harmanus

The national government announced last week what exactly the development of the corona app will look like. Various experts are participating in the first test version of the app, which should be completed by the end of May. Who are these people and what expertise do they bring?

The first test version of the app is being developed by a number of government organizations, supplemented by external experts. These experts examine the available source codes, including those of participants in the Appathon, and work towards an intermediate result that can be further built on. The experts now recruited therefore choose which basis will be used.

Dirk-Willem van Gulik, back-end

Dirk-Willem van Gulik is perhaps the most famous name on the list of the national government. Van Gulik was at the cradle of the still widely used Apache software for servers. He is also a co-founder of the Apache Software Foundation, which is another founder of open source software.

Van Gulik led the Apache Software Foundation for no less than eight years, but left it in 2007. He later became CTO at various companies, including Joost Technologies. In 2008, Van Gulik became Chief Technical Architect at the BBC, where he became responsible for the BBC's next generation back-end infrastructure.

    The Directorate of Information Policy at the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport has engaged Dirk-Willem van Gulik as an external expert in the context of the Dutch Corona Crisis response.

    Temporary External Expert, Dutch Ministry of Health bij Ministerie van Volksgezondheid, Welzijn en Sport

    CTO for hire, Due diligence and technology remedial team fixing

    The text below has been translated from Dutch(original) into English by Priscilla Harmanus

    The government has shared its schedule for the new corona tracking app after previous attempts failed. The app is built by a team of experienced developers.

    Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health, Welfare and Sport) said in the Lower House (Tweede Kamer) on Wednesday that a first version of the new app could hopefully be tested at the end of May. The ministry has now shared a timetable (tijdpad en proces) on which the development of the new app is explained.

    It is again an app that should make tracing possible corona infections easier for the GGD. The app must be able to warn people who have been in the vicinity of a person infected with the corona virus.

    The previous attempt to get such an app off the ground failed when, after a very short lead time, the seven candidate apps... none of them met the requirements.

    Experienced experts
    Now the government is opting for a transparent development of a corona app. The GGD will clarify what the app should be able to do to improve contact research and a new team is developing that app. That team includes external experts such as Dirk-Willem van Gulik, known for the widely used Apache software for servers, and Jelle Prins, responsible for the design of Uber's apps for years. They have "a lot of experience in developing, testing and managing digital applications", according to the government.

    The first so-called 'proof of concept' should be ready by the end of May: an early app that works and can be tested on a limited scale. In the run-up to that test version, interim results will also be published publicly. "We do this in all openness to not only show what we do and where we stand, but also to actively use the knowledge and experience of everyone who wants to participate."

    Privacy and openness
    Again, privacy, rights and data security are important points. The previous apps could not guarantee those points, so the government had to go back to the drawing board. The new app will be open-source and will use the joint platform of Apple and Google, Minister De Jonge wrote earlier in a letter to the House (Kamer).

    The platform from Apple and Google ensures that the app works well on iOS and Android, while protecting the privacy of the user. The companies only allow one app per country on the platform. When the corona crisis ends, the platform will be closed.

    The new app may still contain source code from apps submitted in the previous attempt. What is new is that it will now always be checked what and who is needed.

    "If it is decided to build on a specific source code, the first construction team will probably be expanded with experts with regard to that source code. They may be experts from the group of previous participants, or from outside of it," says the government.
