Next steps


Step 1: Join the community

Join our community of over 400,000 developers to build new skills and contribute to tech for good open source projects. You will receive:
– $200 USD in IBM Cloud credits for new IBM Cloud accounts that upgrade to “pay as you go”, allowing you to build your skills and kick-start your solution
– An invite to the dedicated Slack workspace where you can find tips from Call for Code mentors
– Call for Code communications with the latest announcements, events, resources, and more

If you have an existing IBM Cloud account, you can use it. There’s no need to create a new one. 


Step 2: Pick a project

Whether you want to help farmers understand their water usage or link first responders to communities when connectivity fails, we have the open source projects for you. There are many ways you can get involved, from contributing to the core project or developing integrations and customizations.


Step 3: Find resources and collaborators

Get started with the latest open source technologies, whether that is AI, IoT, or data science. Find tutorials, code patterns, and more so you can start making meaningful contributions now. Meet collaborators and brainstorm ideas on our Slack channel.


Step 4: Make your contribution and share with your network

Start contributing to the project of your choice. Issues can be created and pull requests are made within the project GitHub repos themselves. In the spirit of open source, share your ideas and code with your network. We are always looking for content for the Call for Code Digest. Tell us your story for a chance to be featured.
