Finding Happiness in Open Source

Cache Stage


About the event

As technologists have amazing skills and abilities, but for a lot of us the missing piece is finding a way to give back. Join me as I discuss how to get involved in open source helping organizations that support some of the most vulnerable members in our communities -- food banks, diaper banks, animal shelters, and many others. We'll also discuss the benefits, educational, personal and professional, of contributing to projects like these. You will leave having learned how to get involved in areas you’re passionate about to fill this missing piece that will keep you happy throughout your career.
