Hi, all -- I'm looking to make a late-career shift toward full-stack web development. Would like to work in the nonprofit space to support work that helps the disadvantaged, the environment, etc. Self-taught via online courses. My two main projects so far have been an online community for people in support groups (Python with PostgreSQL) and a multiplayer "neighborhood" poker game (NodeJS with MongoDB). Both have been solo projects, so I need some experience working with others on a shared codebase, like contributing to open-source via Github, or doing hackathons.
