Hack for LA needs mentors for our May 31 - June 1 event. Can you help as a mentor during the weekend?
Mentors set the tone for the hackathon. The role of the Mentor is to be a resource for the teams during the duration of the hackathon. Help teams define workflow, generate relevant ideas, problem-solve, understand open datasets and develop final pitches. Most importantly, be helpful and encouraging!
Ideally mentors have minimum 2-3 years experience on a software development team, have mentored other developers, are familiar with open data and technologies and have participated in at least one hackathon. We are looking for mentors that are software developers (mobile, front-end, back-end), visual designers, UX designers, Quality Assurance testers and product/marketing experts. Mentors should be able to participate in both days of the Hackathon (May 31 - June 1st, at City Hall in LA). Some of our mentors from Hack for LA 1 and 2 found new developers for their teams, so think of it as a great way to meet good people in tech!
