Mitigating natural disasters is one of the world’s greatest challenges. The past decade has been one of the worst periods for natural disasters and while they may be inevitable together we can reduce the impact.
That’s why we launched Call for Code in 2018, a worldwide, multi-year initiative that inspires developers to solve pressing global problems with sustainable software solutions.
Create applications with IBM Cloud technology that improve disaster preparedness and relief, build resilient communities, and safeguard the health and well-being of individuals and institutions.
Our community is a powerful tool to help you. Whether you are embarking on your own or competing as a team, we’re here to help you succeed.
Tackle some of the hardest problems with help from the community, share your knowledge or learn from others on the key areas where technological solutions could make the greatest impact.
The Call for Code Challenge for 2018 was a competition that asked developers to outthink natural disasters and build the solutions that will significantly improve the current state of disaster preparedness in your community and around the world.
