Subject Re: Seeking Mentors for Google Code-In 2017
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2017 21:36:30 GMT
Thank you to everyone who replied with an interesting in becoming a mentor.

To help us improve the quality of our application and get a good head start
on building out a large pool of tasks, I'd like to have a kick-off call
this Wednesday at 1300GMT to discuss GCI and begin fleshing out tasks prior
to submitting our application.

For those prospective mentors that would like to join the meeting, please
register at https://attendee.gototraining.com/r/5446685221227699713

Thanks,

Ed
