Top Senior Client Developers - Dec 2017

Javascript Guru and Coding Educator

I have been in the coding education sector for about 4 years now and I love helping students understand difficult concepts. I have over a decade of engineering experience with a degree in computer science. My specialty is Javascript and database development. I currently am highly invested in the MongoDB community. I will not only get you to the answer quickly but make sure you understand the complex problem or error on the screen :).

Australian full-stack developer/designer with almost 20 years of experience: Learn: advanced JavaScript/Typescript, HTML/CSS, software architecture/design, functional/reactive programming with streams, Photoshop, UI/UX design, career guidance and more.

Note: I am often in "away" mode when I am working. I work for myself though, so if you're reading this and would like a session with me, disregard my "away" status and shoot me a message anyway. I'll do my best to accommodate you. I also let my regulars add me on Skype, in order to message me more easily. We'll then tend to jump into Codementor for a session. "TEACH A PERSON TO FISH AND YOU'LL FEED THEM FOR A LIFETIME" My strength is helping you learn to code, debug, structure your application, and in general, how to be a good developer. If you want to develop the skills to build anything you can dream up- to switch easily from one language to another, to implement existing algorithms and data structures, design your own algorithms and data structures, analyse any codebase, debug any problem- I can help you learn language fundamentals, debugging skills, architectural thinking, and the mindset you'll need to develop your desired skill set. If you're looking for someone to debug your code for you, or to "just tell you what to type", I can probably help to some degree, if I've recently used the particular combination of technologies and libraries you're having trouble with, and/or if the scope of the problem is small and focused. You'll probably get more value from me by having me help you learn to debug more effectively though, using the particular bug you're having trouble with. LEARN BY DOING If you have a starting point, whether it's just an idea, or a partially-developed app, I can walk you through building it out, restructuring it (and knowing how to identify where to do so), filling in knowledge gaps that you have, and so forth. It's easier to learn when you're building a real thing, so I aim to help you fast-track that learning process. BECOME HIGHLY EMPLOYABLE I often hear developers having trouble with having to compete with many other developers and wondering if the market is too crowded, and why they have so much trouble landing the roles they want. The truth is that really good developers don't ever have trouble getting work if they want it. If you want to be the kind of developer that can pick and choose which roles you want, ask for guidance. WHY ME? I am friendly, extremely patient, and pride myself on being able to explain things in a way that you will actually understand. Too many developers take basic concepts for granted, and end up just confusing people when trying to explain an idea. I think it's important to be aware of my audience and I try to tailor my approach to the individual in question. I do both visual design (UI/UX) and full-stack development, and have spent almost my entire career glued to a screen doing some kind of software development both on and off the job. Most of my experience is with web-based application development, though I have ventured into client app development, 3D engine design, game design and so forth as well. Currently I'm working on the biggest project of my career; a self-directed endeavour in which I'm trying to redefine and merge a number of fundamental paradigms in software development, dataflow and user experience by combining concepts for which the relevant expertise is not usually found under the same roof. Codementor helps keep me independent while I do this. I know that a long session can cost you more money than you'd like, so to ease your mind, my personal policy for mentoring is: 1. I'll only start the clock once I know that I can help you. 2. I won't drag things out if I can help it. Time is money. If I can help you quickly, I will. 3. If you're unsatisfied with my service, or I wasn't satisfied with the value I provided, I'll issue an immediate refund on the time logged. Bottom line is I'm not happy if you're not happy. If you don't think my assistance was worth a five star rating, I haven't done my job and you won't be charged. Note: English is my first and only language; I am Australian, though my accent is fairly neutral. Some people have indicated that the language barrier with non-native English speakers can be an important consideration for them when choosing a mentor, which is why I'm mentioning it here.

Freelance developer with expertise in PHP / Laravel, JS / jQuery and Java.

NYC based developer with 8+ years of experience, mainly with Java, PHP, Javascript and Python. When I am not freelancing I like to help developers on CodeMentor make their projects a success or to help them through the learning process. Mentoring: I like to tailor my mentoring to the particular client. If you are a student learning programming for the first time, I will take you step by step so that you are the one solving problems as we go, with a little help from me. Or perhaps you are working on your own project and need results fast, in which case I can provide solutions and tradeoffs between them so you can learn and make an informed choice. My background: I come from 5 years experience in backend Java at a Fortune 100 company. After leaving that company, I have spent the past two years working with PHP, JS, CSS, HTML5, and Python to build web sites and apps for small companies. I use frameworks such as jQuery, Laravel and Backbone. My primary development environment is PhpStorm on Mac along with Sublime, with dev and production deployments on Ubuntu servers. I hope to be able to help you out!

Software Developer

I am a software developer and a long time geek who is driven by a passion for development, a desire to solve problems, and a love of tech. My passion has always been to build stuff, whether software or hardware. I just like to create!

Results-oriented software problem solver

I love solving problems. My favorite thing is making somebody's life easier, and there's no such thing as something I'm not willing to tackle (hence the unfortunate WinForms experience). I believe success can only be judged by the end result.

[ professional dev mentor, UX/UI enthusiast, full-stack developer ]

Greetings! I work as a professional mentor as a web dev bootcamp in Vancouver, BC called Lighthouse Labs, where I teach students about programming, web development, problem solving, UX/UI and anything else they need help with, one-on-one, in groups, and remotely. I also conduct practice tech interviews with the students - ensuring they are prepared for the kind of questions and format they might expect from a real tech interview, perform code and UX/UI reviews, evaluate projects and actively contribute to the curriculum. I've received praise from students, instructors, administrative staff and fellow mentors for my friendly and helpful demeanour, patience with students of all levels, ability to break concepts down to a level as basic as an individual student needs, tendency to commiserate with and relate to their struggles and frustrations, thoughtful and comprehensive feedback on code reviews and tech interviews, willingness to go above and beyond to help students, often staying late to ensure everybody has been taken care of and coming in on my off days or mentoring remotely when the mentors are understaffed, and of course for my knowledge and skill - particularly in UX/UI and front end design and development (HTML5, CSS3, SASS, jQuery, AJAX), Javascript (client and server-side with Node and Express), Ruby/Rails, full-scale project design (data modelling, information architecture etc), and conceptual explanations/examples. I have experience with a variety of other languages/platforms/frameworks - Objective-C/iOS development, Java, C++, some PHP, SQL, Angular.js, Bootstrap, Foundation - as well as OOP, imperative and functional programming, and concepts like recursion, complexity, algorithm design, closures, callbacks, and other concepts that regularly stump students. On my to learn/improve on list are React/Redux, Swift, Scala, Python, ES2016+ additions like async/await, and ever-strengthening my existing skills and improving my knowledge, and further developing my expertise in UX/UI design and pushing the boundaries of frontend development as far as I can.

I want to change the world and I found the source code :) Teaching others through my YouTube channel and my e-learning platform is what I enjoy the most!

Hello my beautiful friend :) My name is Renato Hysa and I am a passionate developer. Currently I am working hard on my YouTube channel providing knowledge to thousand of people that watch my videos daily. The feedback I am receiving is extremely positive, thus I suggest to at least get in touch with me, to send you 2-3 videos to watch from the playlists. 3 things that I love the most are programming, teaching others and psychology. So, I will make sure to teach you A LOT and with my psychology skills (which I hope are good :P) to have a good 1 to 1 relationship :)
