Call for Code – June 18-August 31, 2018

Answer the call on JUNE 18

Call for Code is more than a global challenge, it’s an opportunity for your developers to make a lasting change for social good. Unlike other hackathons and code challenges, the code is just the beginning.

Projects can be submitted between June 18, 2018 and August 31, 2018.

IBM is the founding member of the $30 million, 5-year Call for Code Global Initiative, which was created by David Clark of David Clark Cause, a renowned leader in cause-related initiatives working with iconic people and humanitarian organizations — and supports the United Nations Human Rights Office and the Red Cross.

The inaugural Call for Code global initiative invites developers, empowered with access to IBM AI, Blockchain and IoT technologies via the IBM Cloud, to create new applications aimed at reducing vulnerability by mitigating disaster risk over the long run, forecasting impending threats to improve precautionary measures in the short term, responding to medical needs during the disaster, and improving the overall resiliency of communities to rebuild health services in the wake of major disruptions.

The winner will receive a cash prize, have access to long-term support through IBM’s partnership with the Linux Foundation, and the opportunity to quickly transition their solution into the real world. Both individuals and teams are welcome to participate.
