Who backs this event?

Hi,
it seems to me that this event is just a marketing show of DevPost and the other companies mentioned. No WHO, no countries, no NGOs, no civic groups.
What is this - and is it worth it to participate?
Stay healthy, Christian

    Hi Christian,

    Slow Ventures is the principal organizer with support from the organizations on the homepage and Participating Org page, including WHO, several major tech companies, and many others who are chipping in, whether it's encouraging their developers to work during business hours on this or providing data and/or other resources. It's legit.

    And since you mentioned us, which is a fair question of course, we at Devpost are helping this initiative however we can and however they want. Thank you for the good question, and I hope you stay healthy too.
