She helps run  "Developers For Good" that helps volunteer software developers on how to use their skills for good causes. She's also helps train women (and men) on introductory technology topics through http://girldevelopit.com/. Thanks Vanessa!

 

Final Thoughts

The entire day 3 event was: exciting, fun, exhausting and completely rewarding! I hope that we'll have a chance to do another GiveCamp with Microsoft in the future.
