Today on SMACTalk Brian and Daniel welcome a new partner effort with IBM Call for Code welcoming David Clark, CEO of David Clark Cause and Angel Diaz, IBM Vice President. It isn't often enough that developers are recognized for the work they do. Sure, they have built those pesky apps that help us order books, coffee and listen to our favorite music anywhere we have internet connectivity. However, too often we hear about the negatives of programmers and developers. Those that are building code to steal our data or use it maliciously to irritate us with ads we don't want ad interruptions to our experiences. David Clark, who has worked on causes with the great Mohammid Ali and Nelson Mandela asked a different question. As a non-technical person, he wanted to know how could technology and code be used for good. With this, and a partnership with the UN, a large venture capital firm, and IBM, Call for Code was born. In this episode of SMACTalk, David and Angel share with the community all about the Call for Code project. They discuss the current state of the project, the successes to date, the movement and how it is impacting society as a whole and then they peek into the future of the movement. With early focus being on how code can be developed to help natural disasters, something that effects billions of people worldwide, the project is off to a great start. So far, there are code days aka hackathons going on in nearly 100 cities and interest that goes well beyond that for more. For those interested in learning more or participating as a developer or just as a social activist, there are ways for all to get involved. For more info: www.callforcode.org We hope that you will check out the movement, share the podcast and get involved. It's social good meets big tech at its best and we can't wait to see all the great ideas and projects that developers worldwide create in the coming months.
