The world is facing ever greater challenges spurred by climate change including a warming planet, more frequent and destructive disasters, and inequitable outcomes for vulnerable communities. But as this threat grows, it's matched by a fast-growing group of new problem solvers who are bringing more than just programming skills to the fight. Those developers are supported by over a dozen "Call for Code with The Linux Foundation" open source projects and a diverse community that takes on the world's greatest challenges, including disaster mitigation, economic and environmental sustainability, and racial justice. In this session, you'll learn about the framework that Call for Code uses to initiate, incubate, and deliver impact through its projects together with an ecosystem of partners. You'll also learn how you can advance any of these projects whether you are technical or not - including two new projects added in 2022 (OpenTempus and Green Farm) - and get started with your first open source contribution. Finally, you'll hear about this year's Call for Code Global Challenge which is your opportunity to build something new for the annual competition to tackle these important issues with your own cutting-edge innovation based on the latest emerging technology.
