Tools and Services

Mentors and students can currently choose between the following services:

  • Chat: The ability for students to chat with their mentor. Every mentor has to provide this service.
  • Weekly Goals & Activities: The mentor sets weekly goals and activities for the student. These can consist of small challenges and project or reading material. They are supposed to help towards reaching a bigger end goal.
  • 1-on-1 Talks: The mentor is available for 1-on-1 phone calls. How often these occur, is meant to agreed on between the student and the mentor. They can be irregular and spontaneous or weekly/monthly.
  • Hands-on Coding Support: The mentor is willing to help the student with code, by giving him hints or even pointing out or fixing smaller bugs. Important: Mentors are not freelancers! Wanting them to implement components or help with a commercial product is not tolerated. Mentors: it is okay to say no.
