Today we’ve announced the winners of Shift Hackathon, a 24-hour code sprint sponsored by International Medical Corps. Twelve teams hacked for 24 hours in a row in order to develop an app that could help International Medical Corps save lives all over the world. The contestants had the task of developing an application that will be used to gather data on incidents that require urgent medical interventions, such as those including violence or natural catastrophes.
It has been a tough choice, as the Jury has been going through more than 300 Challenge applications!
