Call for Code is a multi-year program that calls on developers to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications based on one or more IBM Cloud services (for example, web, mobile, data, analytics, AI, IoT, or weather) or Red Hat platforms (including OpenShift) to build a solution that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues as open source projects. In this session you'll learn more about the solutions built to tackle natural hazards, climate change, and the pandemic. What sets Call for Code apart from other technology-for-good competitions is the commitment to deploy the winning solutions with the IBM Service Corps and to help teams build sustainable open source communities through The Linux Foundation. Join us at this talk to hear about the most recent winning projects, get an update on previous year's progress, and learn about how to contribute to two projects directly from the developers.
