Call out for tech presentations - SoC

From: Marc B.

Hi all

During our Spring of Code meetings, we're often asked this question: 
"How do I get an experienced developer to be a mentor on my open source project?"

I would love if one of the LJC members could share his/her thoughts on that subject and come give a short presentation to our next meeting: 9th July 6.30pm at C4CC (event to be promoted soon on LJC)

What would you get from this? 
- your presentation available as podcast or screencast 
- the warm fuzzy feeling inside to be useful to the community by sharing your knowledge with fellow coders!
- free beers

Here are a few suggestions about what could include this presentation:
Even if you've never mentored anybody before, what would you make take a look at a project's specs and give a young (or less experienced) coder some
friendly advice?  What kind of description or demo would be more convincing? Would you need to have access to an implementation plan or would a good pitch be enough? 
What kind of questions the project owner should expect at a 1st meeting with a potential mentor? 

The presentation's format: 
- 10-15 mins
- video projector-laptop available

Many thanks for your proposals!
