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.

Bhumi is a fantastic mentor. Her technical expertise in Ruby, Ruby on Rails and programming and her experience in the industry is immediately evident to those fortunate enough to have the opportunity to receive mentorship. I would highly recommend that anyone who is interested in becoming a developer or furthering their skills in Ruby/ROR consider mentorship with Bhumi. They are sure to benefit from her knowledge and ability to explain difficult concepts in a manageable way. Bhumi, thank you for your guidance and help over the past several months!

Bhumi is an amazing mentor that I plan to continue working with. Bhumi is very knowledgeable and patient. Willing to answer any question you want to know about the industry(technical or personal). Cares about you understanding what you need to know to be successful in this industry. Encourages mentees to develop daily coding/learning habits to progress. It's been great so far and excited for what else is in store.
