Code for Good
Code for Good has taken the form of hackathons, where we gather developers, designers, students, and subject matter experts together for a day or two (or more) to focus on creating a software-based solution to a social problem. We work with nonprofit partners to find problems that need solving, and to make sure our efforts have the most impact. The results of our hackathons have been amazing, but in order to reach “every person on earth”, we have to scale up. Way up. That’s where you come in.

Creating Shared Value
To commemorate our first couple years of Code for Good activity, we've got a paper that goes into detail on what Code for Good has accomplished, the shared value of developers working with nonprofits, and the social and business value that the Code for Good program has created.

Code for Good is about more than just hackathons. In 2014, our Android Field Guide social giving campaign raised $45,000 across 3 non-profits dedicated to education and coding–Code.org, CodeClub, and GirlsWhoCode. We're proud to support these organizations to educate, inspire, and equip the next generation of developers with the computing skills they need to pursue 21st century opportunities.
