25 Minute Presentation Encourage New Contributors

Description

The Outreachy and GSoC programs put some money for free software development but requires some volunteer work.

Mentors are an important part on this process and sometimes it looks like it's better to spend that time writing code instead of mentoring to get the things done.

This talk will cover my experience as a mentor in different intern programs and the hidden benefits of mentoring and we can try to find how to improve this experience to make it easier for mentors.
