Call for Code Hackathon at Think at IBM Berlin

June 15, 2019  |  Hackathon

The Call for Code 2019 Global Challenge is a worldwide developer competition that seeks solutions for natural disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.

It is supported by the IBM Code and Response initiative, a multi-year program dedicated to creating and deploying open source technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges.

When areas are hit by a natural disaster, access to community healthcare is crucial. Creating open source technologies for healthcare can reduce risks of disease, create options for emergency care, improve data and resource availability, and help victims navigate the psychological support needed throughout the crisis.
