CALL FOR CODE – DEVELOPER CHALLENGE ($200,000 USD)

Application deadline: August 31, 2018:

 

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.

One team will win the first annual Call for Code Global Prize, supported by the United Nations Human Rights Office and the American Red Cross’ International team.

The winner will also earn several other awards that foster adoption of their application as an open source project (through the The Linux Foundation), scale its impact, and accelerate deployment in areas of greatest need.

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, and be held on October 13th, the United Nations International Day for Disaster Reduction.
