Coding Bootcamp Graduate: Codementor Helps Me Excel As a Full-Time Developer
After three months at coding bootcamp General Assembly, Alice Chen scored a junior developer position building applications for a nonprofit organization.
She had to learn. Fast. Luckily, she found Codementor.
First, of course, I looked for tutorials online. But my situation is unique, and none of the tutorials matched the current state of my project. I found out about Codementor by Googling for a solution to my problem.
Codementor gives me quick solutions to problems I would have no other way to solve. If I didn’t have access to Codementor, I would probably have to find a tutor on my own. Codementor is definitely more convenient!
We started by talking about what my work situation was like and what I was trying to do, and he looked at the code of the app I was working on. Then he gave me a high-level overview of how Backbone works, and helped me through my first question – all in a half-hour session.
After that I felt a bit better about Backbone, but I ran into a few other issues that I needed help to resolve. I was having trouble with a concept in backbone called the router. I was trying to make a single-page application and didn’t know how the concept of a router would fit.
My second mentor, Marek Publicewicz, was just as skilled as Sam. After a quick pair-programming session, he’d explained the concept to me and helped me figure it out!

Thanks for starting such a platform! I consider it a godsend.
If I didn’t have access to Codementor, I would probably have to find a tutor on my own. Codementor is definitely more convenient! It’s less expensive than a tutor, and in terms of timing, it’s super flexible. We can meet as early as 7 in the morning or as late as 10 at night, and I can get help the day I need it. There are definitely some more Codementor pair-programming sessions in my future! Thanks for starting such a platform! I consider it a godsend.
