Take a New Web Dev Under Your Wing (Paid, Remote Mentoring)
May 20, 2015
Marco here. I’m a ruby/rails dev myself and I was wondering if you’re interested in taking a new web developer under your wing for 1 hour per week.
Here’s the gist:
Me and a few other developers are running the FirehoseProject (http://www.thefirehoseproject.com) - a 12 week mentor driven online coding program to train the next generation of web developers.
Our code mentors take a student under their wing for 12 weeks, pair program with them for one-hour per week and guide them towards their personal coding goal.
Throughout each week, students work on building several web applications (think Yelp and Udemy clones), solve real-world coding challenges (traversing trees, linked lists, etc.), build a web app through TDD and join a group project to build a chess game as a team.
Our mentors are senior web devs with experience from PayPal, eBay, Product Hunt, Flickr, bit.ly, Techstars & Y-Combinator companies, and get excited by seeing a beginner grow into a proficient developer who's able to solve complex CS challenges.
You can see what some of our students are saying about us here (http://www.quora.com/Reviews-of-theFirehoseProject) and find more info about what our mentors are doing here (http://www.thefirehoseproject.com/expert-mentors).
