We need your help.
We are looking to get feedback from the community on what projects would be good and appropriate to present to a mentee. Remember, they will have a mentor from the community helping them on their contribution(s) and will work for 3 months on it. These projects should be somewhat “hype”-worthy as a deliverable for the mentee is blogging about their work.
Where to begin?
The board has some ideas about what would be good, but what do you think? Fable? Paket? Giraffe? Ionide? Most desired language feature? Reply below and start the conversation.
If you’re interested in becoming a mentor, please reach out on FSSF Slack and definitely check out Selketjah’s post.
