What we give

One of our values is that we involve people we love. To us, this means spending time with our families, and investing in our communities. We participate and contribute where we can, to our communities, to events, and with donations.



As long-time members of the global and Australian Ruby, JavaScript, and web standards communities, we have a long history of participation in those communities. Elle has run multiple Ruby Conferences and Rails Camps, and served as a member of Ruby Australia. Lachlan has also served on the Ruby Australia committee, as Vice-President and as a general member. Together, they ran USA Rails Camp East in 2016.

In 2018, they served as advisors to the organisers of the inaugural Levels Conf. Australia’s first conference dedicated to supporting software developers new to the industry.

In 2020, Elle served as Treasurer of Maribyrnong Kinder .

From 2022, Elle joined the organising team for Tech Leading Ladies, as the leadership training coordinator.

From 2023, Nicola was appointed to the Whitehorse Manningham Regional Library Corporation board, where she brings the voice of the library users, as well as corporate board skills to ensure the library’s sustainability.

Nicola also serves on the RMIT School of Computing Technologies Industry Advisory Committee, providing feedback to the university to ensure graduates from their courses are equipped for a commercial career.

Nicola supports the Australian technology leadership scene, as one of the organisers for CTO School Australia. With chapters so far in Melbourne and Brisbane, it is a place for current and future CTOs to meet, learn, share and support one another.
