Frequently Asked Questions
Why join an event about coding?
Registered students will be connected to a group of dynamic peers from across the globe who wish to build something concrete, sustainable, and thought-provoking. And since leveraging technology for good is in IBM and CGI U's DNA, we're bringing in the speakers and industry professionals who can help you do the same!
Due to the growing concerns and healthy safety risks associated with COVID-19, year-round programming for CGI U 2020 has been moved from in-person meetings to fully virtual meetings until further notice.
Why social impact?
We want students to build projects with meaningful impact and hope to foster a community dedicated to social change. We also want to facilitate the development and launch of innovative, life-changing open technology.
Do I need to have technical skills?
No! We encourage students with all skill sets and from all backgrounds to join the event. We embrace all diverse social change makers who want to make a difference!
What is Call for Code?
Now in its third year, IBM’s Call for Code is a multi-year global initiative that rallies developers, visionaries, and problem solvers with technical and non-technical backgrounds to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications based on cloud, data, and artificial intelligence that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues. Call for Code brings start-up, academic, community, and enterprise developers together and inspires them to solve the most pressing societal issues of our time.
The 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge has been expanded this year to contain dual tracks that address the world’s reaction to the COVID-19 public health crisis in addition to Climate Change — two pressing issues that have the power to compromise our health, our planet, and our survival. You can find more details about Call for Code on IBM's Challenge homepage.
