Hello, developers!

The 2021 Call for Code Global Challenge is now open! This challenge encourages developers to build and contribute to sustainable, open source technology projects that address one of the most pressing issues of our time: climate change. This year's three focus areas include:
Many tech for good initiatives and hackathons produce amazing prototypes, but the story ends there. Every Call for Code winner has a future. Working with an ecosystem of non-profits, governments, and businesses, we bring the best open source solutions to communities with the greatest need. To date, 12 Call for Code projects have been open sourced through the Linux Foundation. Learn more about past deployments.

So, what are you waiting for? Get started with the Call for Code Challenge today.

On a personal note, our hearts go out to our colleagues and friends who are battling COVID-19 in India and Brazil.
