Archive for the ‘mentor’ tag
After about 4 months of mentoring my protege, Philippe Audeoud, along with thierry@, we have cast him free to commit in the wild.
Good luck jadawin, go into the world, and commit to your heart’s content!
I have been fortunate to work with Philippe since the fall, now I get to tor-ment him, along with Thierry Thomas.
This is my first mentee, so let’s hope it is a positive experience for all involved
I submitted a PR to assume maintainership of net/citrix_ica on May 25, 2006. It was my first real port PR, and it wasn’t even formatted correctly! I was fortunate, a sympathetic committer (clsung) committed it anyway. A little over a year, and almost 300 PRs later I have been elevated to the ranks of rookie Ports Committer.
Irconically, Cheng-Lung Sung, my first committer, has become my mentor. Seems like the great cycle of life. Under his mentorship I have committed some of my own ports, and closed about a dozen PRs. No pointyhats, yet! Yet is the operative word, I know it is looming out there, it is just a matter of when.
In the meantime, keep the PRs coming, and I will keep on committing.
