IBM and The GrEEK Campus Host Virtual Coder Boot Camp to Tackle COVID-19

As part of IBM’s global Call for Code challenge, Egypt’s The GrEEK Campus collaborates with the tech giant in order to encourage coders to take part in finding solutions for two of the world’s most pressing crises.

Despite fairly positive headlines on wildlife and parts of the environment currently flourishing during the Coronavirus pandemic, it should never undercut that climate change remains one of the world’s most pressing issues as well. And the holy grail to both of these crises might be found in tech.

To highlight that both the outbreak and climate change require mobilisation of thinkers and innovators, IBM has announced their third annual ‘Call for Code’ challenge. The 2020 edition is a global challenge that calls on coders to participate in creating and developing solutions with a team from all across the world. 

Tech hub The GrEEK Campus joins forces with the tech giant to host a 5-day Virtual Boot Camp to offer workshops, training and mentorship programs to support coders wishing to participate in the global challenge.

The Grand Prize winner will get to recieve a $200,000 cash reward, the opportunity to be mentored by industry experts and an implementation of - and investment in - their solution. The deadline to apply is July 31st, you can find out more on the rules and how to apply here.
