I love #tech because it's the future. Coding is a skill I'm glad to have, even if I only know front end web developing! Another #inspiring story of paying it forward is a software developer's interest in one homeless man. He offered him a choice of either $100 or a free laptop, wifi, and coding lessons. The homeless man (wisely) took the opportunity for learning a new skill, figuring he could do something with it. He did a lot! Using his passion for eco-sustainability and issues around climate change and global warming, he built his own carpooling app, Trees for Cars!
