Mentoring the Mentors

Directing Covert Positive Change

The Drupal core mentoring program has been growing. We have participants in IRC every week, and new contributor sprints have been surpassing our attendance goals at every event. People want to give back, and we are attempting to give them a path to doing so, but we still need help. We always need new mentors and continued support from the community because without these new contributors, core development cannot scale.

The good news is, you too can direct covert positive change in the Drupal community, your local community or your organization. This session will be intended to give an overview of what it takes to be a good mentor in the Drupal community, and hopefully bring the lessons learned back to your organization. There will be specific focus on the techniques we use to mentor new contributors, and strategies for helping people succeed. The session touches on planning sprints, mentoring tools, and documentation.

You will come away from this session with an understanding of the Drupal Core Mentoring program, some tools you can use direct change in your community or organization, and knowledge about where to find more information.
