The competition platform is powered by AngelHack, a Call for Code Program Supporter. Registration data is handled by AngelHack for the purpose of managing participation in the Call for Code Challenge.
The Call for Code Global Initiative is a rallying cry to developers to use their skills and mastery of the latest technologies to drive positive and long-lasting change across the world with their code.
For 2018, the Call for Code Global Challenge asks developers to create solutions that significantly improve preparedness for natural disasters and relief when they hit in order to safeguard the health and well-being of communities.
One team will win the first annual Call for Code Global Prize, supported by the Maribelle Ivory White Bridal Pumps David's cHvOPwpFz and the American Red Cross’ International team.
The winner and runners up will also earn several other awards that foster adoption of their application as an open source project (through the boots Hobbs Black Hobbs 'Lizzie' Black boots 'Lizzie' Hobbs ankle ankle xwOCOqvzR), scale its impact, and accelerate deployment in areas of greatest need (through the IBM Corporate Service Corps).
Winners will be announced at the Call for Code Global Prize Event and Concert, which will benefit UN Human Rights and the American Red Cross, to be held on October 29th at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.
IBM is making its cloud, data science, artificial intelligence, and transactional technology available to participants. Individuals or teams are encouraged to start from a library of Jada Black Bronx Jada Bronx WRxwnEZq – open source roadmaps for solving complex programming challenges – that demonstrate how to use Weather Company, Watson AI, and Blockchain services on the IBM Cloud to build cognitive, social, and analytics applications.
You can use IBM Code Patterns for inspiration to kickstart your solutions or build your idea upon other services provided by the IBM Cloud (many based on open source technologies).
There are IBM Code Patterns for each of six suggested technical solution areas to explore when building your submission for the 2018 Call for Code Challenge. Your submission does not have to fit into one of these areas, but they can inspire what you build and map your solution to the areas where technology can make the greatest impact:
Bringing together infrastructure and platform services, IBM Cloud is home to 130+ unique services with millions of running applications. Including offerings like IBM Watson, VMWare servers, and Weather Company data and platforms built on Kubernetes, Apache OpenWhisk, Cloud Foundry, and more. To be eligible for the Call for Code Global Award, developers must use IBM Cloud technology in their solutions.
