Finding a mentor is hard. Learn how to use Twitter Lists to develop informal mentors. Specifically I’ll share how to set up a “Ballers” list, what you can learn from influencers, how to start social conversations, how to turn informal relationships into in-person meetings, and how to rock your mentor meeting.

This talk was given by Emily Carrion at the Women Who Code CONNECT 2016 Conference in Seattle.
