Mentoring

Target audience: mentors

This group is for people who do:

  • IRC core mentoring office hours,
  • mentor at sprints,
  • self-identify as mentors, or
  • are interested in the general principles of mentoring in the Drupal community.

We are not *doing* mentoring here

caution
It is really important that actual mentoring happen in public:

  • on the actual issues (make comments, it is really OK!), or
  • in IRC #drupal or #drupal-contribute (talk in IRC, it is really OK!).

Please politely redirect any questions about contribution to issues or IRC.

Are you a new contributor?

If you are a new contributor, and have questions about how to get involved,
please do not ask them here. Instead:

  • ask them in IRC in #drupal or #drupal-contribute any day, any time,
  • check https://www.drupal.org/core-mentoring to find some specific times when mentors will be in IRC
  • check your drupal.org account profile page has a dashboard and there are some links to getting into contribution there, also
  • see the Getting Involved handbook page.

Mentor to Mentor Discussions

Use this group to post announcements to mentors.

See also https://www.drupal.org/core-mentoring which has information about staying in contact regarding mentoring things, like the twitter account and calendar. Please go read that page. Also, read the children pages there. There is a lot of useful information about how to do mentoring, how to find tasks for new contributors, and how to plan or host a sprint.

Mentor issues, tag, queues

Some discussions should be in mentor issues:

Introduction: Randall Goya

I have been using Drupal for about 10 years, since version 4.5 (I think).
For the past 5 years I have been a Drupal Gun-for-Hire consultant for Enterprise organizations, mostly in NYC.
I submit patches and contribute documentation on d.o.
Soon I plan to start the process of contributing my first module for sharing block-level DOM elements via CORS.

How I mentor

  • I help junior co-workers with Drush, Git, DevOps, best practices etc.
  • I help colleagues with specific issues (just ask me)

Reusable mentor indentifiers: shirts, buttons, for Drupal events

Camps have thought they could benefit from mentor identifiers like DrupalCons have.

It's expensive to print t-shirts for mentors for every Drupal event,
events could print t-shirts that mentors bring back to other events.

Benefits

  • Increased recognition through repetition, a global representation of mentors.
  • Simple for events, no need to design something new. Just locally source, re-using design.
  • A better fit for purpose, no need for event logos, they could even have the word "mentor" on them!
