    Borek Bernard, Georgia Cottle, Mark Wilkinson: Lightning Session : Setting up and Running a WordPress Mentorship Programme

    WordCamp London 2018Speakers: Borek Bernard, Georgia Cottle, Mark Wilkinson

    January 24, 2019 — As WordPress is an open source project and has given so much to me and my company over the years, we (Highrise Digital Ltd) wanted to do something to give something back to the community that helped us so much.

    Therefore in 2017, we launched the first round of our WordPress mentorship programme which aims to help and mentor budding WordPress developers with development and business related issues.

    This talk will talk about how we set up the mentorship programme, our aims for doing so, how we recruited mentees and what they got out of it.

    August 23, 2018 — It’s easy to spend your entire day, heads down, coding projects without thinking twice about other developers around you. We often get too absorbed with completing our immediate deadlines to spend any time considering the future of our projects, the future of our teams.
    By not mentoring new developers we are failing our future. We are failing at providing new developers with the industry experience they need to be a one-day successful candidate for our teams.
    Let’s talk about ways we can contribute to mentoring new developers in our teams and in our communities.
