We can’t quite believe it, but it’s been just over 18 months since we made our first MAM introduction. We’ve come a really, really long way in that time so we thought what better time to update you on what’s happening and what’s coming next.
At the last count we had… drum roll … 239 mentors…724 mentees and we’ve made 873 introductions!
We know that 873 sounds like a lot of introductions, but we want to do more– before we say goodbye to 2018, we’d like to get to 1,000. Here’s how you can get involved and make our Christmas wish come true…
- If you’ve been thinking about signing up, either as a mentee or a mentor, please do (we’re really friendly).
- Spread the word; follow us on Twitter @RWmeetamentor and share our posts; tell your friends about us; tell your family about us; get your boss involved. We want as many people as possible to know that we’re here.
- If you’ve got knowledge of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, it’s becoming a really popular request from our mentees. We’d really appreciate some more mentors in this space.
- Currently our Application or System Performance/JVM performance tuning group hasn’t got a lead, if you think you could guide a group of enthusiastic learners, we’d love to hear from you
For those of you who haven’t got involved with the group yet, and you’re wondering if it’s for you, here’s a reminder of what we’re all about.
- We’re made up of members from the tech industry, mainly specialising in Java and front end technologies. But, no one is excluded here, we’re open to all of the tech field; if we don’t currently have a mentor we can match to you, we’ll try our very best to find you one
- We have mentors at all levels, from juniors to CTOs.
- We support mentees at all stages of their career from graduates to leaders.
- We personally match all our mentors and mentees, so we make sure you’re working with people who can really help you to drive your career.
- As well as 121 mentoring, we also have an active online Slack group and run meetups.
- We have a whole host of active study groups, including (to name a few) … Kafka, Reactive Programming, TDD, Clojure, Deep Learning/Machine Learning, Application or System Performance/ JVM performance tuning…. we could go on.
- It’s totally free.
