I’ve worked many different developers from Senior to Junior and they all have one thing in common, they are looking for a mentor but also want to teach. Some may call it sharing ideas or showing off something cool but they want to describe the details of the code, their thought process on how they got there and why the end result is great but could get better. I look at this and see teaching moments.
I feel so many developers want to have a community that is open and sharing but many don’t feel ready or have the time. I’m hoping to challenge you all to start wanting to share. If you feel like you could write a post, feel free to message me and I’ll add it here. If it’s something small, tweet it and hashtag it #osrmentor and I’ll try and add them to a future post.
I’m also challenging myself here to take more time to share ideas, finish thoughts and open up channels to help teach, guide and come along side other developers to make projects go better, careers to advance and make life just a little easier on this journey we call development.
