DevNation Day India 2021 - Call for Code improves global resiliency and sustainability through open source technology
Call for Code is a global initiative that brings together developers across the globe to help solve the world’s most challenging problems, like disaster resiliency, climate change, safe water, and sustainability. One of the things that sets Call for Code apart, is that the top solution each year is incubated, tested, and deployed in the field by IBM, the winning team, and an ecosystem of partners. The first place team also walks away with a $200K cash award for their innovation. Call for Code includes David Clark Cause as its Creator, United Nations Human Rights as Charitable Partner, the Linux Foundation as Program Affiliate, and IBM as the Founding Partner.
Successful deployments have been done in Puerto Rico with Project OWL, Spain with Prometeo, and Agrolly in India.
