Mentoring

Mentors

To supplement what we are sure are already amazing skills, hacker participants will have access to a number of technical and domain mentors throughout the event. Mentors will be working across teams and in shifts to provide as much coverage and breadth of skills as possible.

Each team will have access to mentor(s) from MTA, Microsoft and/or a Microsoft partner. Below are profiles for three of the many mentors that you will have access to.
