Contributing to the development of IT for Change website helped me access the wealth of knowledge the organization has created over several years. It helped me get a better perspective on linkages between information technology and developmental issues like gender, governance, education, and democracy. Most remarkable aspect was the use of open source technologies, since my internship I have became an advocate of Open Source.
