If you attended our Community Meetup during MuleSoft CONNECT 2021, you already heard the news about our brand new MuleSoft Community program — the MuleSoft Mentors! This program recognizes members of our Community for their amazing contributions and mentorship of others. The MuleSoft Mentors will help our Community expand their MuleSoft skill sets, become comfortable sharing technical content of their own, and eventually get them ready to become Mentors themselves! We will be accepting applications and nominations for our next cohort of MuleSoft Mentors from May 18-June 18, 2021. 

If you are interested in learning from any of our Mentors, reach out to them on LinkedIn and they will answer any questions you may have, whether they are technically related or about them as a MuleSoft Mentor.

Who are MuleSoft Mentors and how can I become one?

MuleSoft Mentors are developers, architects, or other technical personas who are active or are hoping to become active in the community and contribute in multiple ways. They will be required to consistently contribute to the community on a quarterly basis. It is about a three-hour per quarter time commitment. This includes:

  • Contribute one piece of content (either on our site or a third-party)
  • Speak at one Meetup or other technology event about MuleSoft or organize one Meetup
  • Answer 15 questions on the MuleSoft Forum
  • Actively drive discussions and act as moderators in their Discussion Groups

For their hard work and dedication, they will receive a variety of incentives including:

  • Receiving recognition as a MuleSoft expert
  • Free training vouchers a few times per year
  • Access to special MuleSoft events
  • Exclusive invitations to produce feedback sessions
  • Specialty swag

Becoming a MuleSoft Mentor is also a requirement if you hope to become a MuleSoft Ambassador one day. While we have shared the minimum requirements, we do highly recommend individuals go above and beyond if they hope to move into the Ambassador tier. 

If you or someone you know is passionate about the MuleSoft Community and creates high-quality content, consider becoming a mentor! Submit applications and/or nominations by June 18, 2021 to be considered for our next cohort. Learn more about our MuleSoft Mentor program.
