Codementor Alternatives: Coding Mentorships

April 28, 2021

Codementor.io is a code mentorship platform, similar to ours. We get some messages from time to time, asking us what the differences between MentorCruise and Codementor is, so we’ll highlight it in this post.

Codementor Alternatives: Coding Mentorships

About Codementor

Codementor is an online platform providing instant one-on-one help for software developers by utilizing screen sharing, video and text chat, in order to replicate for users the experience of having a mentor for code reviewing, debugging, and online programming.

Signups are open for all professionals, with a specialized program (arc.dev) offering a more vetted & expensive program.

Codementor is known for its overwhelmingly large marketplace of coding talent. Offering mostly on-demand help, it’s a great way if you need a couple of minutes or a few hours to sit down with someone and get a concept explained.

Most prices at Codementor are per 15 minutes of calls or per hour.

Codementor was founded in 2013 and today includes mentors at FAANG companies, authors and known experts of the industry.

About MentorCruise

MentorCruise is an independent education platform with the goal to connect you with the mentor you deserve for effective career development and skill building.

The platform allows you to choose a long-term mentor from the marketplace for career- or skill-driven mentorship and is allowing you to book specialized sessions if you only need a quick call to help.

Mentors communicate via chat and/or video calls and support mentees in organizing learning resources, advisory calls, career building and more.

A unique thing about MentorCruise is that there is no artificial limit to the interactions a user can have with their mentor. MentorCruise works with a flat monthly fee that includes unlimited chat interactions and a few calls, depending on the mentor.

The program is therefore perfect for anyone looking for the most personal way of doing coaching. Whether you want to chat, have a call or work through e-mail is entirely up to you.

All mentors go through an application process, are educated and continuously audited, promising the highest quality of mentors at all times. Just like Codementor, there are professional mentors at every FAANG company and almost every leading startup listed.

When should you choose MentorCruise?

MentorCruise is the best fit for you if you want to experience consistent growth in your career or skills. The reason for that is that MentorCruise acts in a long-term way: Our mentors charge a flat fee and there are no additional charges on top of that.

Our users tell us that they appreciate the quality of our mentors: We thoroughly vet new mentors on the platform and then evaluate their performance continuously. That way, you can rely on all mentors being responsive and accessible when you need them-

If you need a quick fix for your code or someone to have a look at your resume, our sessions are an amazing choice. Codementor with their over 12,000 developers definitely over a bigger variety here though and with the per-hour or per-minute billing it’s possibly a better platform for you.
