More than 150 contestants are trying to tackle the opioid epidemic during the 6th Annual Cajun Code Fest.

It’s a competition where teams code for 24 hours straight. This year, the idea is to program a data-driven solution to America’s opioid crisis. At the end of the competition, experts in the field will judge the projects and award a prize.

Matt Delcombre, Organizer of CodeFest said, “It is a challenge–a mind challenge to work 24, 30 hours straight to come up with a solution is not a trivial task. They take this very seriously. They’re here to work.”
