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 a bootcamper, who wants to get job-ready.
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 junior developer, who feels overwhelmed in your job.

If this is you, I would LOVE to work with you.

So get in touch and let's work together!


Why Mentoring?

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

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. I sent him a message. The next weeks and months, we had an awesome conversation.

We talked about coding, but also about meta skills, like thinking, engineering and people skills.

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 150 articles and over 12.000 people follow me.

I hosted over 100 workshops, public and private, onsite and remote.

So get in touch and let's work together!


This is for you, if ...

  • you have sent 100 applications, but didn't get responses.
  • you want to become a professional, not just a tutorial copy cat.
  • you feel stuck, but don't know how to get out.
  • you want to take responsibility for your life, not blaming others.
