A track for mentees with experience in IT

Advanced mentorship track with the focus on more in-depth topics concerning everyday practices - things that can enhance existing skills and tune up daily work processes presented in an “hands on” manner. Participant engagement is expected.
Topics covered may be relevant to non-IT field participants, but are especially valuable for those working closely with tech / software products.
