Looking for Mentors
I'm happy to help. I'll be very busy over the next few months getting my project ready for the international Robocup, but the occasional email should be fine.
I'm ready to help, but i'm afraid, that my english skill can become a problem
Thanks for the quick reply, its great to hear that people are keen to help out! I guess the best way to move forward would be to share some contact details. I will then give these out to the students once we start the robocode part of our project around the middle of february. Perhaps each of you could mentor a couple of teams therefore limiting the number of emails you will be getting.
It would be great if you could perhaps tell some other people about this project and see if they would also like to help our as the more people we have involved the better!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, please email me from the account you would like students to contact you at so that I can start putting a list together.
Thanks again for your help and I look forward to hearing from you and perhaps some other willing helpers soon.
I'd also be glad to help. Projects like this are always interesting :)
actually i think that every active robocoder is ready to help. and there are google+ circle for robocode: https://plus.google.com/102023615133629629984/posts?fd=1
Thanks for the great response, I've had quite few replies and am also looking for mentors from other more general programming areas as well. If you think you might like to get involved please contact me and I can tell you all about it.
The students had their first programming lessons this week and are really excited, particularly by the idea of working with robocode and having mentors they will be able to contact and share ideas with.
If you have said you will be involved or would like to be can I ask you to send me a quick Bio about yourself and your experience that I can give to students so they can find out a bit about you. It would also be great if you could supply a picture as well and this could be an avatar if you like, It would be nice if students could put a name to a face!
Thanks again for all your help, if you know of anyone who might be willing and able to help please put them in contact with me.
