Meet your 2016 Mentors: How to get a one-on-one session at the AT&T Developer Summit
The AT&T Developer Summit and Hackathon is about creation, community, and sharing knowledge. As part of this program, we’re bringing back our popular Summit mentor program in 2016! The mentor program is part of a series of activities following the hackathon on Monday, January 4th at The Palms in Las Vegas including an AT&T Futurecast, WebRTC and M2X DevLabs, Swift and JS technical training, and our celebrity speaker Kevin Spacey.
We have reached out to successful developers, engineers, and entrepreneurs inviting them to be dedicated mentors at the 2016 AT&T Developer Summit. Following our 2015 mentors Wesley Chan, Immad Akhund, Ian Hunter, and Tikhon Bernstam we have identified a fresh slate of experts from a variety of backgrounds to meet with you in Las Vegas.
We are excited to announce that Daniel Ha, Ela Madej, and Rita Ciaravino will be joining us at the 2016 AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon in Las Vegas on January 4th as dedicated mentors.* We will match you with a mentor in a one-on-one session to help guide you towards your entrepreneurial or career dreams.**
