      Hey SITBERN and CODEJAM Fans ... We have still on SCN the #catchamentor mission going on. Did you already earn your badge? No? Then this is the chance for you to #catchamentor in Bern, take a selfie and pin it as comment under this article. 

      Catch a Mentor and Know a Mentor Missions

      After a couple weeks your #catchamentor badge will appear in your SCN Profile.

      PS: It might be hard to find some, but I can see at least 2 from the list. One Alumn who is a great geek-herder... and only lady from the SAP Mentors Program team. Need more hints?

      Have fun!
