Hey community! I am working from home as most of the world, and I thought I could use my "saved" commute time to interact with members of the community.

What's the plan?

Sign up for a 30 minutes mentee session here — https://forms.gle/7DLtZZQAP1JMd7pz7. I will reach out to you and schedule a session. Bear in mind that this is a short term mentorship session (1-2 sessions per person).

Target Audience

  1. Current CF rating 1700 — 2100 (This is not a tight bound, but I feel it would be most helpful for this region).
  2. Studying in India (Sorry for limiting by country, my reasons are timezone, accent and weak spoken English skills).
  3. Interested in a chat / discussion about something related to programming.

Standard Disclaimer

I am not representing my employer (Google, Inc.) in any ways while having these conversations, I am just trying to help people out personally.

    Thanks for the comment, I re-read my post and realized I should put in my reasons and not let people guess.

    1. Rating -- Its not a restriction, more of a personal preference. Feel free to sign up :)

    2. Country -- My spoken English skills are bad and there's my stupid accent on top of it. I will try to remove this, but for now I am not trying to waste people's time in experimentations. I am not even sure at this point if I would be a good mentor. Also, IST timezone is favorable right now and I am doing it in my limited capacity.

    Ratism + Racism, smh!

    Sorry I didn't get you the first time)

    Didn't he say he wanted to mentor indian people? Before he edited the text I thought he meant the following. "himanshujaju is indian. He loves indians more than any other nation. He wants to help his countrymen. He thinks that his mentorship will be helpfull to people with 1700-2100 rating." This is not racism nor ratism, this is normal human behavior.
    (in reality, his reasons are timezone, accent and weak spoken English skills

Thanks all for filling it out, I have received far more responses than I had thought. I would be shutting down the form for some time now.

It would be cool if you are still accepting; what's your current strength on training? Will you be doing this on round-basis like new mentees for like each year or for 6 months?
