Discussion on: What's the kindest thing someone's ever done for you during your career?

In 2013 - I was in a customer service role but teaching myself to code using One Month tutorials and several other online classes. I had a good relationship with the CTO of the company at the time and would ask him questions of things I didn't understand. He happily helped me through tough questions and concepts. It was my dream to become a software developer and to be able to build, but never realistically thought it would happen - just a cool thing to kind of have knowledge of.

After a few months, he pulled me aside one day and ended up offering me a junior development role on the team. I will never forget that moment and will always be grateful to him for taking the chance on me. To this day, I always think back to that moment - and I am always on the lookout for beginners/juniors who need a chance as well so I can give that feeling to others.
