We're looking to try out a mentorship program through the #code4lib channel on IRC Freenode. The idea is that experienced people who are willing to volunteer some time would provide 1-on-1 mentoring to those who would like to learn during an "Office hours" period, once a week. The idea is sort-of modelled on the Drupal project's Core Office Hours. If this sounds like something you'd like to contribute to, don't hesitate to add your name!
