[Article] Mentoring: Your path to immortality

As GSoC 2017 wraps up, wanted to share this great article with advice on mentoring. Written by friend Rich Bowen, who’s been around open source projects many years.

But be sure that you’re not just selecting copies of yourself, rather that you’re expanding the ecosystem. You’re not replacing yourself, you’re amplifying yourself. Be sure to amplify yourself in harmony, with many tones, volumes, beats, and countermelodies. Monotones are boring.

Big thanks to all of our mentors over the past few months! (And the months to come!)


I think this will be a talk for Open Source Summit North America but not sure if he’s the speaker too.


Just checked. He is.
