We talk about mentoring a lot in the software industry, but how much do any of us really know about how to mentor? If we’re honest with ourselves, we are probably making it up as we go. This talk will hopefully move beyond that and move towards having a purpose to our mentoring relationships. We will take a look at how to start a mentoring relationship, setting a purpose for the mentorship and ultimately how to make the most out of it. Whether you are a mentor, a mentee or even someone who is just interested in possibly doing this someday then you will benefit from this talk.
