Get mentored the 8th way

Every language has its own way of doing things. 8th is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a 8th developer and how to write idiomatic code in 8th. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in 8th - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
