Giving back

Recently I've been more aware of what I could really do for some communities that have helped me since my first steps in programming and still are (and will remain, for sure) so helpful in my career. Basically, I'm really determined to fight the lurker that lives inside of me by contributing more actively on some "web communities" that have been so important to me. For example, recently I've been assigned to architect and develop a new mobile application to manage personal health records and I'm using Phonegap/Cordova to do it, so as I'm learning this new tool instead of just reading the answers at stackoverflow and using the multiple plugins available at github, I'm also contributing by answering some questions as I'm learning more and I'm also pushing code to improve some plugins I'm using. That's the least I can do and I intend to do more not only on github and on stackoverflow but also here on this blog.
