To all developers: help to prepare for disasters – answer the Call for Code

Anyone who has been involved by a natural disaster recognizes the enormous urge to help the people affected. We know from our own experience how powerless you feel when your family or friends are in an affected area. The consequences of Hurricane Irma in Florida and the impact of Katrina in New Orleans were enough reason for us to take action. Personally and as an IBM employee. That’s why we support the Call for Code initiative.
