    Graphic Designer turned Developer, Designer & Community Manager at Vendeve

    I moved across the country a week earlier and immediately felt at home. HackerYou is like summer camp for people who are ready to start doing meaningful work and change the world. I made lifelong friends, learned an entirely new skill set and changed my life.
