One of the accepted PyCon US Hatchery program this year is the "mentored sprint for diverse beginners" program, where the goal is to pair up open source maintainers with diverse group of new contributors.
More details: https://us.pycon.org/2019/hatchery/mentoredsprints/
I’m helping to organize this sprint. Since many Python core developers are attending PyCon, I think it would be great for CPython to participate and have core devs available as mentors. Experienced contributors are of course welcome to mentor as well, but it would be great for core devs to be around, help with decision making or merge PRs.
My personal wish is to have at least 4 core devs mentoring at this sprint. (more would be better!)
The mentored sprint is separate from the regular sprint. This sprint will take place during main conference days, Saturday, May 4th, from 2:35pm to 6:30pm. (4 hours only). I really value you all’s time, so if you could mentor for one 2-hours shift, that would be really great and appreciated! I hope with this advance notice, you’ll be able to plan your time at PyCon accordingly.
Please let me know if you’re able to participate and mentor for the sprint (by participating in the poll below, or feel free to DM me).
I will get everyone’s email address.
- I’ll be there, and I can mentor for 4 hours
- I’ll be there, and I can mentor for 2 hours
