Sustainability and climate change are the focus of this year's Call For Code, the annual contest for developers run by IBM, the David Clarke Cause, United Nations Human Rights, and the Linux Foundation. The challenge is to build and deploy an open source solution for the chance to win the $200K Grand Prize.
Call for Code was launched by IBM and David Clark Cause in 2018 to develop tech to tackles some of the world’s biggest challenges. It is open to teams of developers, designers, data scientists, and entrepreneurs who are over the age of 18.
Alongside the main contest, with a top prize of $200,000 plus support in setting up as a startup, there are runners-up prizes along with a university competition with a cash prize of $10,000 and guaranteed acceptance into the Clinton Global Initiative University 2023 Class.
Entries to the Global Challenge need to address one of a number of challenges aligned to sustainability:
Call for Code, IBM, and IBM Ecosystem partners Arrow Electronics, EY, Ingram Micro, Intuit, New Relic, and Persistent Systems, are providing participants with access to technical resources and subject matter experts during themed accelerator sessions, which can help them pinpoint problems to solve.
Once registered, participants can attend Challenge Accelerator events to help fast-track their projects, learn from subject matter experts, access exclusive skills-building materials, and use exclusive toolkits, APIs, and data sets from The Weather Company and participating IBM Ecosystem partners.
Call for Code has also been selected as the preferred innovation platform of the Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Alliance, one of the largest public/private climate partnerships in the world.
