RTP, North Carolina, May 10, 2020—Syncfusion, Inc., the developer solutions company of choice, is proud to announce that it is a Bronze sponsor of Dev Around The Sun, a 24-hour fundraiser to raise money for Direct Relief, an international aid organization helping communities severely affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The event, hosted by the .NET Foundation, begins May 12 at 8:00 a.m. EDT and will continue around the clock for 24 hours, ensuring that every region across the globe, at some point in the day, can tune in via Twitch or YouTube to watch sessions dedicated to software development, technology, and life skills. Watching any of the 41 sessions is free, but viewers will be encouraged to donate to Direct Relief during the event.
Direct Relief’s mission is to supply health care workers with medical resources they may be lacking. They’re currently engaged in the fight against COVID-19 by giving medical staff access to protective gear and critical-care medications.
Sponsors of Dev Around The Sun, such as Syncfusion, donate directly to Direct Relief, ensuring that no dollar is delayed in going toward the effort against COVID-19.
“Syncfusion has an ongoing initiative to help the developer community advance through education,” said Daniel Jebaraj, Syncfusion’s CEO. “Sponsoring Dev Around The Sun gives us a splendid opportunity to fulfill that mission while, at the same time, contributing to an organization that’s helping communities hardest hit by the coronavirus.”
Direct Relief is supplying personal protective equipment (PPE) for health care workers; stockpiling intensive care unit (ICU) medications and oxygen concentrators to assist when ICU patient numbers spike; and using aggregated data in coordination with epidemiologists and technology companies to improve responsiveness to COVID-19 cases, according to information on Direct Relief’s website.
