Now is the bonding time between students and mentors and tomorrow at noon
US Eastern time is the first official meeting between students and mentors.
All of our student meetings are held in public and you are welcome to join
us and learn more about these exciting projects. We’ll be asking the
students to create small introductory videos or screencasts introducing
their project to the world, making sure they are well aligned with their
mentors and understand their project goals. Stay tuned for those videos!
