Description

A massive storm floods Manhattan - and people need to find shelter quickly.
Drought hits the Horn of Africa - and smart delivery of food supplies saves lives.
An earthquake rocks Mumbai - and first responders need to know where to go minute-by-minute.

Responding to disasters like these means boots on the ground — but you can help responders do more with less when we see them as coding challenges. Do you want to use your technical skills to do some good?  Together a few sharp minds can save lives and make a real difference.

That's the mission of the Humanitarian Toolbox – an organization looking for Developers and IT Professionals who can volunteer their time and efforts in building the next generation of life-saving tools. Join James Sturtevant and Bill Wagner for this DevRadio episode and learn how you can get involved.
