Discussion on: Did you ever find and worked with a mentor? (other than your direct manager) Do you feel you got a lot of value of it?

When I finished University, I started as an junior Android developer with no experience and had a senior developer, that I liked to call my mentor. He was amazing, although we were taught code in university, it never really clicked. He would pair program with me and teach me all coding principles like DRY and patterns such as factories/singletons. I learnt so much from him, he was my inspiration. It helps if you really bond with the person too, if you have similar character you can learn so much.
