"A mentor’s job is not to teach the material and inform. It’s simply to show new developers how to learn, encourage good habits, and act as a supportive peer."
1. What You’ll Do
Showing “newbie” developers how to learn effectively
Encouraging good habits to become a great developer
Acting as a supportive peer
Additionally, if we had to add some tips:
- Help show how you debug - most people starting to learn coding for the first time think that software engineers never make mistakes. You and I both know that we spend 90%+ of our time debugging and fixing stupid mistakes.
- Talk out loud - as you‘re working through a problem, try to talk as much as possible. The more you talk, the more the learner can understand your thought process. The journey to the solution is more important than the solution.
- Share stuff about your job - our learners are, for the most part, really curious about what your job is like. If you have any good work stories then please go ahead and share!
- Mongo, Express, React (JS or Native), Node
- Typescript, Python, Java, and other languages is a plus
- Caring. You will help students changing their career path.
- Communication skill. You will talk to students every week, and they will much appreciate if you can inspire them in the new journey.
- Patience. New learners may have many questions. Everything look new to them.
