Program Mentorship For Those Programmers Who Are Motivated And Want To Improve by DonSegmond(m): 1:36pm On Feb 01, 2016
I'm willing to take in a few mentees to mentor. If you are serious about developing your programming chops and wish to step up your game. Let me know. I'm going to limit this to 3 mentees. I'll work with you for 3 months, 90 days. In those 90 days, I'll work with you to grow your programming skills. I will give you assignments, I will give you materials to read, I will review your code and I'll advise you in what to study.

This is an unstructured mentoring approach based on your interested. So, you can write code in python, php, ruby, java, c#, c, whatever. I don't care. I unfortunately don't work with windows and never have. I'm strictly 100% Unix, but if you use windows, no problem. I'm not going to help you with problems such as windows, operating system, network configurations. I'm not going to help you write programs or do your homeworks.

I'm going to advise you, I'm going to look at your code and tell you on what to focus on.

Things I might cover, algorithms, data structures, object oriented programming, structured programming, design patterns, how to design programs, how to keep and simplify your programs, truing making MVC work for you, etc, other technologies, DB, Messaging Queues, Server configuration, security, etc

I have 20+ years in the industry, been using Unix since 95, I've done Security, DB Admin, Unix Admin, Software Development in various forms.

Send me an email (segmond at gmail DOT com), with a mini essay on your experience developing software and what you wish for your future within the software industry.

I don't need a mentor but just thought I would ask what variant of UNIX have you been using? Mac OS X?

I started out with BSD, then SunOS, Linux, Solaris, HPUX, then the (Free BSDs, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD) and now pretty much back to Linux with occasionally FreeBSD/OpenBSD here and there. For Linux distribution, I use Ubuntu for desktop, for servers, Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu.
