Business Applications of Lessons Learned from Drupal Core Mentoring

DrupalCamp NJ 2016

DrupalCamp NJ 2016 Princeton, NJ

Drupal Core Mentoring has become immensely popular since the idea of online office hours first came about in July 2011. Soon after, mentoring at Drupal events came on the scene at DrupalCon Denver, then Munich in 2012. To ease new contributors into the Drupal contribution workflow, every DrupalCon since then has included Core Mentored Sprints and First Time Sprinter Workshops.

We will show examples of how to apply the key components of Drupal Core Mentoring to mentoring inside organizations:

  • starting small
  • talking in "public"
  • asking questions
  • breaking down problems
  • giving and taking feedback
  • working together
  • moving on

If you are thinking of starting mentoring in your organization, or already have a mentoring structure in place, come to this session.
