Major tech giants and health organizations have gathered to find solutions to some of the challenges associated with the current COVID-19 pandemic. The # BuildforCOVID19 is a global online hackathon for developers to build software solutions that drive social impact.

As the Devpost website notes, the proposed themes and challenge areas come from health partners, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and scientists from the biohub Chan Zuckerberg. The hackathon is supported by companies such as Facebook, Giphy, Microsoft, Pinterest, Slack, TikTok, Twitter and WeChat, which will share resources to support participants during the submission period.

Developers can register on the official Devpost website to participate. The late filing date is March 30. Marked projects will be announced on April 3. (ANI)
