Mentoring

Who are you?

So you just started coding, some months ago. Maybe you even started years ago, but only in your free time.

You've done a lot of tutorials, and you've built stuff. But there is this feeling of "being stuck".

Maybe you are stuck in your job and want to change your career.
Maybe you are a business professional, who wants to automate some job tasks.
Maybe you are a bootcamper, who wants to get job-ready.
Maybe you are a junior developer, who feels overwhelmed in your job.
Maybe you are an experienced developer, who wants to increase her/his skills.

If this is you, I would LOVE to help you by mentoring.

So get in touch and let's work together!


Why Mentoring is for you?

After graduating from university with a non-tech degree, I was stuck in an unsatisfying job, moving around powerpoint slides and sipping coffee.

So I decided to learn software development.

None of my friends knew something about software development - I was all on my own.

The internet had a lot of resources - too much resources and too few guidance.

In my free time, I've already built some HTML sites, but apps became the new hot shit, so I started building Android apps. But then, people started to talk about big data, so I moved to Python. I then started with Java, because "this is what enterprises use".

In the end, I was able to write small HTML pages, slow Android apps, weird Python scripts and shitty Java applications.

With some guidance, this wouldn't have been such a rocky road!

One day, while reading in my favorite forum, I wrote to one of the biggest forum contributors.

This guy seemed to be an all-knowing creature who had like 10.000 posts. I shot him a message. One week later, he replied to me.

The next weeks and months, we had an awesome conversation.

Not only about coding. We also talked about meta skills, like thinking and engineering.

Months after, I had an epiphany: He was my Mentor.

This was the first time in my life, I acknowledged this kind of relationship.

A learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn.


Why me?

Over the years, I've helped 100s of people to improve their skills through 1-on-1-mentoring, workshops and code reviews.

I wrote over 100 articles and over 12.000 people follow me.

I hosted over 60 workshops, public and private, onsite and remote.
