AgileVentures is a UK based charity that helps groups of developers form teams to work on IT projects for other charities and non-profits. The philosophy is to provide professional development opportunities for software engineers wanting to level up their technical and team skills in the context of real-world projects with real users; while also providing a useful service to deserving causes. As well as working to promote AgileVentures around the world, I serve as project and scrum manager for several of the projects including LocalSupport, WebSiteOne, ProjectScope and Autograders, which are all Ruby and Rails related projects.
