I can teach you the ins-and-outs of React.js, how to control state with Redux, how to be a more efficient Vim user, or expose you to functional programming with Clojure.

I've been using vim as my primary editor for many years now, and have done so because I'm insanely productive in it. It's a very lightweight editor with some mind-bendingly powerful principles. I don't think anyone can ever rate themselves 10/10 when it comes to vim, since you never really stop learning, but I'd like to think I'm pretty darn close! ;)

Ever since I ventured out of C++ land and learned scripting/dynamic languages, I've felt increasingly empowered by learning functional programming. Functional programming goes far beyond passing functions, and gives you the tools to make guarantees about your code, so it can stay concise, legible, and most importantly, bug free.
- 5 years experience
I've been building Single Page Applications for clients over the past 5 years. I've used Backbone, Knockout, Ember, Angular, React, and build SPA Frameworks myself. I've worked full stack, doing Node.js development, writing ORMs, and full blown Express applications.
- 1 year experience
I've recently started using Clojure professionally, taking it from a hobby tool to a power tool. There's a lot to learn in Clojure, and I love teaching people about all of it's new and exciting concepts: Functional Programming, Immutable Data, Transducers, Generative Testing, Specs, and so much more.
Could've been better
Go-to mentor for the big questions on React, architecture, etc.

Master at React w/ Redux. If you're struggling with putting all the pieces together, you'll walk away from a session knowing everything you need

Ben was great. He took the time to get a sense of what I knew, and what I didn't. He covered the foundations of functional with me, and answered my questions.

Ben refactored parts of my Redux code and showed how some fundamental skills could help improve the reducers I was using. He went beyond just patching the code and I came away with a much better understanding of what I was trying to do.

Ben quickly debugged an inherent React/Redux problem involving the structure of my reducers, actions, and top level components. I will definitely seek his help in the future.

Ben was very helpful with solving a problem I had with Redux. I will definitely be working with him again. Thanks Ben!
