Chennai - 21st July 2018


Call for Code is more than a global challenge, it's an opportunity for developers to make a lasting change for social good. Unlike other hackathons and code challenges, the code is just the beginning. We're providing developers with access to the best in IBM technology-IBM Cloud, AI, IoT and more-to create applications that improve disaster preparedness, build resilient communities, and safeguard the health and well-being of individuals and institutions.

This event will take place in five cities across India and will give developers a chance to drive change in disaster management, prediction and recovery. Call for Code is a global initiative, the most impactful project will be implemented with the help of IBM, The Linux Foundation, UN Human Rights, and American Red Cross.
