COMMUNITY FEEDBACK ON LFX INSIGHTS
“The LFX Mentorship program is well-organized and provides a robust set of tools for creating a mentorship program, screening candidates, and conducting the whole process virtually. Speaking personally, I had never created or run a mentorship program before. The Linux Foundation’s Mentorship staff had plenty of materials available to teach me everything I needed to know. What I really like about the program is that both the Linux Foundation and Intel have seeded the mentorship program with sufficient funds to provide the mentees with a generous stipend. This makes all the difference in the world to those who would like to learn from active open source projects, but typically need to forgo mentorship programs due to living expenses.”Joe PearsonIBM Cloud Technology Strategist
