Finding Happiness in Open Source

We 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, both 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.

Code for Good

Sean is a tireless do-gooder. He created and organizes Code for Good and spends his day job working to make government more sane. He loves the programming community and can't believe he is paid to have this much fun. When not programming he loves being outdoors (especially national parks), drinking coffee from Portland, playing with dogs and getting lost down wikipedia rabbit-holes.
