Perhaps my favorite is a group that used geo-mapping to identify cafes and retails shops around the Philadelphia area that put out water for dogs. These pre-teens and teens were being tasked with walking their dogs, and wanted an easy way to make sure they stayed hydrated on their walk. I love it!
I’m never the smartest person in the room, and couldn’t be happier about it. People in the tech industry are so damn smart it hurts. The stuff that comes out of their mouths, and the articles they write blow my mind while expanding it. Along with being smart, the tech community is one of the most supportive I’ve ever seen. You’d be hard pressed to find someone in tech who isn’t willing to grab a coffee with you, or a developer who refuses to help you solve a problem. There are also these magical groups of supportive people from diverse backgrounds. They know what it’s like and constantly fight for and build each other up. It sucks that they need to fight so hard, but seeing what they accomplish and how they are making changes is beautiful.
