You’ve never had a better reason to sign up and learn Bluemix! Devpost, the home for hackers, has just launched a new challenge: Bluemixathon: Operation Rescue and Recovery. You can use your coding skills to solve humanitarian issues by creating Bluemix apps to ease the logistics crises that arise during natural or man-made disasters.
Listen to what Gina Poole, VP of Developer outreach and developerWorks, has to say about the challenge in this video:
You can achieve recognition and win prizes, but best of all, you can experience the satisfaction of helping those trying to survive in the aftermath of a life-altering disaster. The submission deadline is November 11th, so register today and get started! Winners will be announced on December 10th.
For more information about rules and criteria, see Bluemixathon Challenge on Devpost.
