Software development teams dedicate considerable resources to training newcomers. Newcomers are new developers who are introduced to a software project. The software onboarding process is more complicated than onboarding into other organizations. It is much more challenging and time consuming. The role of a mentor in onboarding new comers in software engineering is well understood. However, the disruptions to the work of an experienced developer can reduce the quality of their work and job satisfaction. We propose a conversational bot which can help onboard new comers to a software project instead of an experienced programmer. The bot will act as a mentor for the new comer thus putting less stress on experienced programmers. The bot will also be able to scan outside sources, such as stack overflow, for solutions to issues a new comer may face. The new comer will be able to interact with the bot using natural language. We will use this bot to assess improvements to code quality in future studies.
