Call For Code Global Initiative was launched on May 24th this year at the Viva Tech Conference in Paris by IBM CEO, Ginni Rometty. At the inaugural event, IBM and DCC officially issued the Call for Code inviting the 22 million developers worldwide to compete in the inaugural Call for Code Global Challenge – to help address specifically the problem of Natural disaster preparedness and relief, with powerful software solutions that can have sustainable impact.
