What’s Better than a College Degree? Mentorship.
[Updated August 2017]
According to the 2016 Stack Overflow survey of over 56,000 coders, mentorship programs correlate with higher pay than a college degree. I’ve always suggested that students find a good mentor, but with that kind of data-backed endorsement, I thought we should do a little more.
My blog posts attract half a million readers per month. I speak at conferences around the world, and students pay hundreds of dollars to attend my master class workshops in a classroom environment packed with other students.
I’m partnered with JS Cheerleader, tech agent extraordinaire. She works with hiring managers from the top tech companies in the business. She offers the best tech career advice you’ll ever get. Together, we have a bird’s eye view of what skills the industry is looking for, and what companies value in potential engineering hires.
It’s time to introduce the world to DevAnywhere.io — a weekly 1:1 remote mentorship subscription program.
How Will We Meet?
We’ll meet online via video chat for pair programming, and you’ll get links to a ton of great materials to study on your own time after each session.
What Will We Talk About?
Here is a small selection of topics:
- Functional Programming
- Prototypal Inheritance & Object Composition
- Application Architecture
In particular, we’ll talk in-depth about software composition techniques using functional programming and object composition as the essential tools of application design. These topics are usually overlooked in other training resources, but learning them can have a profound impact on the quality of the software you produce.
They’ll help you build code that is much easier to understand and maintain over time.
Who Should Apply?
