(VIRTUAL) Call for Code with The Linux Foundation: Contributing to Tech-for-good Even if You're Not Technical - Daniel Krook & Demi Ajayi, IBM

Call for Code with The Linux Foundation is a collection of open source projects that take on the world's greatest humanitarian challenges. There are over a dozen hosted solutions that address racial injustice, disaster risk reduction, and the social and business impacts of the pandemic. But the code itself is only one component of a comprehensive solution to these multi-faceted issues. Community and culture are also critical to ensure that the technology can deliver on its promise, so a diverse set of skills are needed to help a project succeed. In this session, you'll learn about the framework that Call for Code uses to initiate, incubate, and deliver impact through its projects together with an ecosystem of stakeholders. You'll also learn how you can advance any of these projects without needing to be a developer and get started with your first open source contribution.
