Subject RE: Request for a mentor

It sounds like you already found if not
start there.

Apache is all about helping oneself. To find people willing to mentor you it is recommended
you show up with evidence you will return more value than time you ask for. Everyone here
is a volunteer and had their own drivers, which usually prioritize the production of strong
coding communities. So if you arrive at a project that interests your and offer contributions,
then you'll find people will help you.

In your mail you identify areas of interest but have not defined a specific project of interest.
   you indicate you are confused by our projects page. That's fine. It just means you have
yet to find something that excites you.

I recommend you read blogs that cover your area of interest. Find tutorials that look cool.
Ruin through them. Learn which projects are used within them. Then come back to the page linked
above and file the practical advice wiring it for those specific projects

Hi Roman,

I have gone through the Apache projects page multiple times and came out
hopelessly confused. My primary research interests are Artificial
Intelligence and Machine Learning, but apart from that, I love to find out
clever solutions to complicated problems. I also love to learn about new
technologies and how they might grow to influence us. I am less interested
in front-end but more in the cogs-and-wheels which make the things run.
I would love to work in anything related to machine learning, big data or
any other area which could use me. What I might lack in knowledge, I will
make up in willingness to learn and my enthusiasm to contribute.
