Is there a city that inspires you?

Actually, Minneapolis. There seems to be a strong, yet friendly tech community thriving there despite the cold. I think Minneapolis is closer to what Anchorage can achieve in short order. We're small and friendly (no matter what anyone says), and we're tenacious. At least some of us are.

Are there any projects or specific causes you want to work on?

I want to work wherever I'm needed, whenever I can. I have a background in Drupal, html, and css. But I'm hoping to learn more. I can read php and javascript, but am still learning to write it myself. I'd be especially happy to help mobile/responsive design projects for groups who could not afford to have nice sites, but need them terribly -- groups who cater to users who need information quickly and without hassle on their mobile devices. I'm thinking specifically shelters, abuse programs, domestic violence help, etc. I'd also like to start teaching more coding, etc., in the schools. We need to start training the kids here to prepare them for tech jobs, and what a better way to introduce community service? Finally, though terribly introverted, I can pretend - very well I might add - to be a public relations person, organizer, snack provider, and event planner.

Introduction

I moved to Anchorage awhile back, fell in love with the city. I am currently a website manager - sigh, vague titles - but I am trying to learn to code in my spare time. I have a background in technical writing, event planning, and teaching.
