Great topic Sam, connecting with more experienced devs who help ground, guide, and push me out of my comfort zone have been so crucial for my growth. I always try to support my mentors in their pursuits like they do in mine. I often find folks paying it forward helping me are also doing it in other ways speaking at or hosting meetups/conferences, getting involved with hackathons, or nonprofits that teach programming to youth. Volunteering at their events, spreading the word to your networks, &/or attending them is a great way to be a friend, show gratitude for their time, & provide them with value back.
Thanks for the compliment, Niko :)
Those are all great ways of paying it forward and I'm really happy the karma based system is working out for you :) Best of luck with your journey.
