From Mentoring to Pair Programming to Coaching

Main Thread 1 min read

Almost four years ago I started the Louisville PHP User Group. Which has since evolved into the Louisville Software Engineering Meetup. I started this group not only to share my experience, but to learn about others experiences as well.

About a year ago, I started mentoring at Code Louisville. They offer 12-week programs for anyone interested in learning to program. I've found as a teacher you can learn just as much as the student.

Around the same time, I also took a job on an extreme programming team. Since then I have pair programmed with another developer every workday from 8 to 5. This one to one, peer to peer interaction has made me realize I'm missing an entire audience.

So, while I plan to continue speaking and mentoring, starting today I will offer personal coaching.

The format is simple: one-hour sessions available in sets of 1 (for $99), 3 (for $279), or 10 (for $899).

Coaching focuses are:

  • PHP
  • JavaScript
  • Objective-C
  • Test Driven Development
  • Git
  • RESTful APIs
  • or just starting programming

So whether you want to learning a new language, level up, or just get another developer's opinion, schedule your coaching sessions now.

If you have additional questions, you are welcome to email me.
