Exercism helps people improve their programming skills with thousands of exercises across 52 languages with help from our dedicated team of welcoming mentors. Our mentors help guide others through a language track offering feedback and encouraging people to think critically about their code. It is crucial to Exercism that our mentors share our vision and care passionately about delivering feedback empathetically and that Exercism remains a comfortable and friendly learning environment. To support this we offer mentor guidance and ask that everyone contributing to Exercism follows a code of conduct which is grounded in research on how people learn.
do to help
Mentors are at the core of Exercism. Let's see how they're involved.
A student joins a language track and submits their solution to a coding challenge.
A Mentor gives feedback and guides the student to a more idiomatic solution, helping them become more fluent in a new language.
With their mentors help, people complete all the challenges on their track and achieve fluency in a new language.
