How will your code change the world?
To facilitate the development and launch of innovative, life-changing open technology, IBM has created Code and Response.
This $25 million, four-year initiative will build, fortify, test, and launch open technology solutions that help communities needing critical aid. Our focus for 2019 is Disaster Preparation and Recovery, with an emphasis on health and wellness.
As a launching point for open source programs like Call for Code and Clinton Global Initiative University, Code and Response will support the entire process of creating solutions for those most in need.

The 2018 Call for Code Challenge winner is Project Owl!
IBM Developer congratulates the team of Project OWL for winning the 2018 Call for Code Challenge. Project OWL (Organization, Whereabouts, and Logistics) is a two-part hardware/software solution. It creates an offline communication infrastructure during natural disasters, giving First Responders a simple and reliable interface to manage every facet of search, rescue, and restore.
As the first solution to be facilitated and launched by IBM’s Code and Response initiative, Project OWL will be tested in Puerto Rico this year. We’ll keep you up to date on this incredible collaboration between IBM Corporate Service Corps and the OWL implementation partners.
