This workshop was hosted at Fab16 Montreal. It presented the alliance and the data standards it has released so far, then moved to a hands-on workshop digging into one of these initiatives: the Open Know-How (openknowhow.org/) documentation standard. During the workshop, we learnt how to make OKH Manifest files and use them to document and evaluate medical designs for COVID-19 around the web. We used this information to learn how to effectively discover, compare and select the best projects from a list of devices. We explore the possibility to apply Open Know-How within the maker community. Event link at Fab16: https://live.fablabs.io/posts/16045423Watch recordingWatch recording
