Mentoring for junior JavaScript developers

Learning to program can be an overwhelming project, especially when one is alone in navigating all the available options. There are so many:

  • languages to choose from
  • multiple frameworks in any of the languages
  • many other layers to consider, as I wrote in my framework post

Some lucky junior developers have access to mentoring in their day job - may be nothing formalized, but one helpful colleague that helps them improve their skills. For sure, I benefited a lot from the support of more experienced developers in my team. In some cases, it was just a short discussion, but it helped me improve a lot in a short time.

On this blog, I'm primarily focused on stuff that could be helpful for javascript developers. I want it to be a resource that is useful on its own, and at the same time let me connect to people who could be interested in products I'm creating - video course for esbuild & webpack.

It's one thing to promote a product, but it's much more important to understand the challenges of our potential customers. I'm interested in understanding better people like you, so my article & my course will help solve real problems you guys face.

So as you see, I believe strongly in mentoring; and I want to understand better people who read this blog. Because of that, I opened a profile at codingcoach. It's is a community where people offer free-of-charge technology mentoring.

I'm looking forward to finding 2~3 people with whom we will help each other in our projects - me helping them navigate their programming journey, them allowing me to know my market better.
