Mentorship Program


#1

Hi everyone,

We think contributors deserve attention. So, the Cozy Cloud team will propose mentorship programs to anyone who wants to contribute to the project by coding. The program is simple: a Cozy core developer will dedicate 4 hours a week to help you with:

  • Setting up your development environment
  • Configuring your application
  • Answering to your technical questions
  • Helping in promoting your app
  • Fixing bugs in your application
  • Learning the basics of Node.js, ExpressJS, BackboneJS and ReactJS (Backbone or React depending on your choice)

What do we require for this program?

  • A commitment in building and maintaining your app OR regular contributions to the project.
  • An app published under a Free and Open source License (MIT, AGPL, BSD)
  • Good behavior among the community

To apply for a mentor you can either reply to this thread or send us an email to contact at cozycloud dot cc. Github is a great medium too to ask for it.

Is mentorship possible in order to add 1 feature to a cozy-something or is it better to just open an issue ?


#5

Yep, that could work. The timeframe of a mentorship is not defined, it can be one week or two months.


#7

Would a git repository hosting service be of use to anyone? Like a personal github. Or has someone done that already?

Hi @aafrey,

I don’t think anyone did such an app for Cozy, or that person didn’t share it with the community.
I’d be interested in this, and I know some people in my school would be too :wink:
