Top Senior Guide Developers - Dec 2017

JavaScript Developer & UI Designer

I'm an experienced JavaScript / front-end engineer who has held positions on the front-end teams at Twitter and Airbnb. I'm particularly interested and proficient in style guides, code reviews, user interface design/implementation, and helping projects transition to better coding/reviewing practices.

Goal-driven HTML, CSS, Stylus, JavaScript, Ember, and WordPress. Learn the things properly, in the right order, and with real-world reasoning / even if you don't know how to 'open your text editor.'

Hello, My name is Derek. I write HTML, CSS and JavaScript to build websites and web applications. I work as a consultant helping small businesses with branding and websites and strategy and all sorts of stuff. I also contract with a few marketing agencies where I build the front-end of interactive applications. I learned everything the hard way. You shouldn't have to. There are so many 'frameworks' and buzz-words - and while so many people are creating things to make our lives easier, those tools can cloud what is actually happening and make learning some messy business. Just because someone is a great developer doesn't mean they are suited to teach. Many developers lack the empathy or memory to explain concepts without making assumptions about where the mentee is coming from. I'll make sure you learn WHY you write markup and what a CSS rule actually is - instead of showing you how to use bootstrap and other abstracted libraries of opinionated functions. I won't expect you to know what I mean when I say 'library' or 'terminal' or 'npm' or 'pass it in' until I've listened to your goals and heard about your background. I'll walk you through everything in order of importance to your unique understanding of the languages and help find the blind spots you may have. I believe that a solid foundation, while it may feel slightly slower at first, will ensure you cut through all of the churn of the changing code climate in the future. I'm not a JavaScript wizard, but I can explain what beginners need to know - better than most seasoned developers - and I can get you to a place where you can begin to ask the right questions. I'm an expert with CSS and responsive layout. I'll set you on the path to reusable/modular code that will be easier to write and maintain. I can help you sort through the hype and ensure you don't get stuck in the mud. In my experience, pair programming is by far the best way to learn. Let's discuss. I'm new to this codementor site. I've only been offering session since January 2017. If I can't help you ~ you won't be charged. My codementor rate is considerably lower than my standard rate because I expect to learn from our interactions as much as you do. I feel that pair programming is the best way to learn and that both parties benefit. Once I meet with a fair amount of people I may adjust my rate accordingly.
