Training

I offer in-person and online training for software engineers especially junior developers.

When I first started as a junior developer about a decade ago, I was lucky to have great senior developers who acted as my mentors. But unfortunately not all my jobs had great senior developers or leads, I struggled to be productive as soon as possible at those jobs.

Since then, as a lead and senior developer, I have helped and couched many junior developers. One thing I have learned is that everyone has a different learning style. And everyone can be a great developer with proper guidance and mentorship.

Universities and schools don’t prepare students for real professional work. In school, you learn to work on well-defined problems with definite solutions. When you start your first professional job as a programmer, you will find out that real world problems are vague and possibly there is no real solution.

Starting a new job is pretty intense experience especially when this is your first professional job. Unfortunately, not many companies provide any training for new developers. And if they do, it is usually rushed through. You may have other team members to help you but sometimes it is hard to get help when everyone has their own deadlines.

I have over 12 years of experience working in small and big companies. I can help you get started with various popular technologies currently in use at major companies. These technologies include:

  • PHP, Javascript, Typescript
  • Laravel, Composer, PHPUnit tests
  • Git, Github, Stash, Gitlab etc
  • Reactjs, Vuejs
  • Nodejs
  • Linux, shell commands, ssh, etc
  • Development processes, Scrum
  • DevOps, Continuous Integration processes (Jenkins)
  • Docker, Kubernettes
  • How to find technical solutions
  • General programming principles like naming, design considerations, Linting, clean code, etc
  • High Availability and Disaster Recovery
