Are you an open source enthusiast? Is your enthusiasm supported by a mentor who helps you navigate the nuances and complexities of open source? Do you wish to pay it forward? Open source mentorship is a critical part of the open source ecosystem, yet the framework for mentorship remains obscure and out of reach to many. Despite knowing the overarching significance and gains of mentorship, are you hesitant to be a mentor? The journey from an isolated enthusiast to an active contributor to open source and mentor of open source contributors has made Nikita extensively cognizant of the essentials, barriers and fulfilling benefits of the role. This talk will take you through Nikita’s experiences, provide practical tools for aspiring mentors, and empower you to move from aspiration to realization. Come learn how to transform open source communities by becoming a “precise” open source mentor. Let’s reimagine open source and consciously try to make its communities more inclusive together.
