How i find one?
To our surprise, the biggest problem is in getting requests for advisors’ time. Turns out many will share their experience; fewer feel comfortable asking for it.
Mentors give feedback on exercises in most mainstream languages. You can also mentor one track while being mentored in another.
After a few such patches, this will start getting you code reviews. People have much more time to review your patches to their code than they do to make suggested patches to your code.
And of course - don't take things too personally, but also don't take them too seriously either. Plenty of open source projects have drive-by "code reviewers" that nitpick everything without contributing themselves. All things in moderation
We go down six and see Google's android architecture components. We click on it and click on pull requests. We look at what is open and what is closed.
We see a month ago someone sent a pull request which was merged -
If we go back more we can see other merged requests in the recent past.
This is a project with a "few recent merged pull requests". People sent a patch to the code in a pull request, and their branch was merged into the main code base.
While this example was Android and Kotlin, you can look at other languages you have more familiarity with, and other focuses. Projects with a lot of stars and/or forks are good candidates to look at, and you can sort by them. I did add the caveat recent though, as sometimes a project has been abandoned for a year or more, and there might be no active project owner to merge pull requests.
I also offer ongoing mentoring for independent freelancers, if that's the track your on.

It is centered towards university students but everyone is welcome.
Note: This opportunity window is only open for a short period before I start something else. Post which it will become less likely for me to respond frequently.
What about writing quick units tests and make your own comparisons? What is working nice for you, is probably the best way, anyway!
