Code for Good

Code for Good

Intel's mission this decade is to "create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on earth". Code for Good aims to put that mission into action.

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.

Do it Yourself!

Are you interested in participating in the Code for Good event? Want to start something on your own? Don’t let us hold you back. Get advice on how to plan and conduct your own Code for Good event.

Innovation at Intel: Waiting for “Now” to Get Here We focus a lot on innovation at Intel. I’d like to talk about why we do it. It’s about responsibility.
