More and more people are learning about technology and want to start their career in the industry. But, there are so many different options within the industry and it can be difficult to work out what path you want to go down and what might be the best way to get there. 

Meet a mentor is an event designed to help put students of technology in touch with people who work in the software industry and ask them questions. Anyone learning about technology is welcome, regardless of where or how you are learning about software and computing; universities, intensive courses, TAFE and anyone teaching themselves. 

The event itself is a bit like speed dating. There will be tables set up around the room of approximately 6-8 students with 2 mentors on each. The mentors will introduce themselves for a minute each then the students will have 10 minutes to ask the mentors at their table questions. Once the 12 minutes is up, the 2 mentors will move tables. By the end of the night, all students will have a chance to ask all the mentors their questions.

It should be a fun and informative night. It’s really informal and there will be a chance to grab a drink and have a chat with interesting people. The mentors come from a range of backgrounds and include: software developers, designers, engineering managers, product owners and recruiters. 

The events are based on a series run by the Graduate Developer Community in London that I used to help organise.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
