Hey friend,

I'm here to support you with your journey into software engineering, more specifically if you'd like to become a web or backend developer ๐Ÿš€ I am currently only focusing on students who'd like to level up with Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and the adjacent tech stack (long-term students). For short-term live support, I'm also looking into other languages (Python, JavaScript, Java) and frameworks.

## How

Everyone's needs are different and we will level out at a certain rhythm together. But generally, these practices work well for coachings with me:

**for live on-the-spot support**

* structured scientific approach to debugging
(analysis => hypothesis => experiment)

* follow up support if needed

**for long-term mentoring**

* define Your Why

* build good & consistent habits

* prepare your job search

* pair programming

* TDD, Refactoring, Clean Code, OOP

* learn about project management & agile

* weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly roadmap

* (maybe) solve real-world challenges together

* track time

If you like to get a taste of how it is to work with me, let's hang out on Twitch during some of my coding live streams: [@code_small_programs](https://www.twitch.tv/code_small_programs/schedule) or schedule one or two individual sessions before you commit to a more serious collaboration with me.

Coaching works great online via Zoom/Telegram and also in-person if you happen to be in sunny Barcelona โ˜€๏ธ

I generally will connect with you on weekends and on some of the weekday evenings.

**Fun Fact**

* I'm speaking 4 languages and none of them well (๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช | ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ | ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ) - especially since the computer languages joined in... But I'll be glad to work with you in any of those languages

## Current and Past Projects

* Creating APIs and the Stripe for phone plans at gigs.tel

* daily coding live streams [@code_small_programs](https://www.twitch.tv/code_small_programs/schedule) and [YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyec8BlQmM9C_EW8cmsoJtg)

* writing, drawing, and explaining stuff @ [richstone.io](https://richstone.io/about)

## Coaching track record

* 30+ positive reviews on a different code mentoring platform

* A few points on [StackOverflow](https://stackoverflow.com/users/5925094/rich-steinmetz)

* a few success stories written down on my blog @ richstone.io
