ApacheCon Seville 2016 – How to Be a Bad Mentor for a Struggling Podling Subject to Terrible Policies – Roman Shaposhnik

How to Be a Bad Mentor for a Struggling Podling Subject to Terrible Policies – Roman Shaposhnik

With major apologies to David Patterson for stealing the title of his last lecture https://s.apache.org/how_to_be_a_bad_professor (I guess he taught us well after all!) I would like to present this talk that focuses on Apache Incubator, its podlings and mentors. This presentation will start with an overview of common mistakes that I have observed while mentoring on my own and seeing others do the same. We will proceed to talking about misconceptions on both sides that make Apache Incubator policies appear daunting and bureaucratic. We will conclude by a 10 steps program aimed at helping podling master the Apache Way and graduate as quickly as possible. Finally, a few battle stories will be shared and wounds put on display. This former VP of Incubator has a few to show.
