Hello, developers!
COVID-19 is spreading rapidly and becoming one of the greatest crises of our time. We created Call for Code to take on pressing issues, and this year we expanded the challenge to include both climate change and COVID-19. Technology solutions can help reduce the impact this pandemic has on our daily lives and the world.

Join the Call for Code challenge to create your own technology solutions to fight COVID-19. Starter kits are quick-start guides tied to easy-to-understand use cases that help you scope the problem and get you building in minutes. IBM Developer starter kits are currently available for:

- Crisis communication
- Remote education
- Community cooperation

We hope you try out these new tools and let us know what you think!
