Hi there! 👋 I’ve been unofficially mentoring developers for many years now. I’ve learned many things the hard way or the slow way in the last 15 years working as a software engineer. Any week that I can meaningfully help someone else on their programming journey is a good week -- by explaining tricky concepts, teaching meta-coding and problem solving skills. If you are looking to talk to someone about the following, get it touch!:

* Guidance with any aspect of building a web-based product (especially Ruby on Rails and React) as well as API design and data modeling

* Computer Science Fundamentals - things you need to know regardless of what programming languages/frameworks/tools you end up using. I love breaking down complex concepts in an easy to understand way and connecting the dots.

* Tips for how to succeed at your SW job - from understanding the structure of an existing codebase and software system, to reading other people’s code, to participating in code reviews. Finding your niche and becoming a valuable member of team.

* Learning methods and mindset - how to decide what to learn and in what order, how to track progress. Habits for making sure you’re growing as a developer, setting aside daily coding and creating time.

5 out of 5 stars

Bhumi is a great mentor! I have been working for her for a couple of months now on current issues in both my learning of Rails, Ruby and SQL and road blocks that I have run into in my professional jobs.



5 out of 5 stars

Bhumi is really an excellent mentor, she takes the time to listen to any questions or concerns you may have, and then she helps you figure out how to solve that problem. She's always there for guidance if needed.

Bhumi has been a great mentor. I have had some things impact my scheduling and she has been very flexible. I look forward to learning more from her.
