This talk is near and dear to my heart. I've had successes and hardships, but I keep coming back. Now, as an organizer I hope to keep this rewarding project going for as long as I can.

Synopsis: Nine years ago, I was just starting out as a full-time developer when I heard about a brand new volunteer opportunity. New England GiveCamp set out to develop websites for charities over the course of one weekend. I volunteered to use my newfound skills to help non-profits, and I haven’t stopped since. In this talk, I’ll discuss the feedback loop of giving back — how volunteering has helped me grow as a developer, which in turn allows me to give even more.
