Have you been sitting at home, bored out your mind due to this lockdown? Sign up for #codeForCorona to have a fun, productive time!

We began 2020 hopeful, excited. The dawn of a new decade seemed to promise much. But we were in for a nasty surprise: what seemed like a bad case of the flu in January has now infected almost 2,000,000 people worldwide.

COVID-19 is a threat to the world's healthcare systems, economies, and communities. But with these threats come the opportunity for innovation. We need systems for remote work now more than ever: NGOs need ways to continue their work, and universities can't just stop teaching their students.

The #codeForCorona Virtual Hackathon is here to give you a chance to build something that helps the world in this time of crisis. Spend a weekend competing with other talented people, having fun building something important for the world. Taking place on the 9-10th of May 2020, #codeForCorona gives you the chance to make something awesome with your friends from the safety of your home.

Over the course of 24 hours, you will explore what innovation in a world threatened by COVID looks like. The things you and your team build will work towards solving the social, medical, and economical issues that we are faced with. At the end of the competition, you’ll have the chance to present your work to highly qualified judges and get their valuable feedback!

So what are you waiting for? Register now before the tickets run out!
