Building things - Be a creator not a consumer/audience. Making things is one of the best ways to learn and help others solve problems. We love when people enjoy building things. Whether its a website to improve discoverabilty or an app using FOSS tools or a board game to help children learn math.

Valuable solutions vs original solutions - Don't feel pressured to writing new code just for the sake of it, or building new original apps. Instead focus on using what is already there to create “valuable” solutions. Remember, just because Gmail is free does not mean that everyone will write amazing emails.

Problem solving - Break down complex problems to smaller pieces, and then solving them.

Attention to detail - If you can't solve the small problems or details, then how can you solve the bigger, more difficult problems. right? 

Simplicity - Keep things simple, clear. Always choose the simplest words, simplest methods, tools. Always.

Helping others - We have to move from independent to interdependent. That is the only way to protect our planet and people from the challenges they face today.

Curious & lifelong learners - Be curious and learn new things through self learning, trying things out. failing is ok. If you fall 7 times, you are getting up 8 times. 

Teaching, Sharing - Believe in actively sharing our learning with others and building everyone’s capacity.
