Top Senior Typography Developers - Oct 2017
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: I am Australian, and English is my first language; some people have indicated that the language barrier is an important consideration for them when choosing a mentor, which is why I'm mentioning it here.
Web Designer willing to go the extra mile
Navigating Web Design and HTML + CSS comes naturally to me. I understand the relevance of future technological direction and its impact on the design formats we use today. Just as I love Web Design, HTML and CSS, one of my passion is to share my experience and knowledge through collaboration where all participants benefit. I make sure every person I mentor takes away new, solid knowledge condusive to their fields. I mentor with simple to understand language and terminology, clear examples and honest patience. Every time you have a lesson with me, I guarantee you will level up. 🎓 My knowledge in Web Design can be found in further detail in Smashing Magazine: https://www.smashingmagazine.com/author/ricardozea/ If you are more interested what I have to say about this realm, below are two books I have authored followed by a list of my work: "Mastering Responsive Web Design": http://masteringrwd.com "Web Developers Reference Guide": http://tiny.cc/web-devs-reference-guide View my work: • Portfolio: http://ricardozea.design • Dribbble: https://dribbble.com/ricardozea • CodePen: https://codepen.io/ricardozea • Medium: https://medium.com/@ricardozea "There are no dumb questions, it's just dumb not to ask." — Yours truly 👍

Web Application Developer, Teacher
Moving consistently and carefully through programming challenges across the full stack
I've watched the web grow up, from simple HTML, to dynamic PHP sites, through Rails and Node.js and all the bajillion frameworks out there today. Over the years I've honed my skills, but I've also developed some fundamental strategies for coding that can be applied to any situation. I can help new developers learn how to steadily move through challenges that seem out of their reach. And because I've seen so many frameworks come and go over the years I can help clients make smart choices about which technologies to use to get their work done quickly, reliably, and with minimal maintenance. I've also seen software projects mature gracefully, and other projects fall into confusion. I have experience taking someone else's mess, applying consistent effort, and making improvements while also improving code quality. I can help set up testing frameworks and other tools to help make sure bugs get fixed and stay fixed. I love working with people of all backgrounds, explaining concepts and choices so that clients and students not only get work done, but become smarter developers themselves.
