“Learning how to program does this really important, weird thing in your brain and you realize you have this power now. This mindset that if you see something that could be better, you have the power to change it, is a mindset that I want as many people as possible to have on this planet. It can start with open source, but the really exciting part for me is when you can apply that mindset to other domains.” – Jessica McKellar, Director of Engineering at Dropbox
