Learning to program can be an overwhelming project, especially when one is alone in navigating all the available options. There are so many:
- languages to choose from
- multiple frameworks in any of the languages
- many other layers to consider, as I wrote in my framework post
Some lucky junior developers have access to mentoring in their day job - may be nothing formalized, but one helpful colleague that helps them improve their skills. For sure, I benefited a lot from the support of more experienced developers in my team. In some cases, it was just a short discussion, but it helped me improve a lot in a short time.
It's one thing to promote a product, but it's much more important to understand the challenges of our potential customers. I'm interested in understanding better people like you, so my article & my course will help solve real problems you guys face.
So as you see, I believe strongly in mentoring; and I want to understand better people who read this blog. Because of that, I opened a profile at codingcoach. It's is a community where people offer free-of-charge technology mentoring.
I'm looking forward to finding 2~3 people with whom we will help each other in our projects - me helping them navigate their programming journey, them allowing me to know my market better.
