I'm helping developers and tech entrepreneurs to get deeper into building software ⛏

To give you a couple of examples:

- accompanied self-taught developers to get a good job in the industry by hammering out software projects, branded content, and preparing for interviews the right way

- helped devs to come up with project ideas and bring them to life with the right accompanying resources

- helped entrepreneurs who wanted to learn the details of software to get the code and setup right for their product ideas

There are a couple of blog posts about that in my blog if you'd like to dig deeper into their journeys.

I'm helping supporting you with all sorts of things like...

- setting up projects
- make better decisions in code
- steer projects in the right direction
- polish your teamwork flows and communication
- setting up some sort of a personal brand
- level up your career
- make better products

It might be not quite obvious from the text above, but I'm an emoji heavy-user so please bear with me πŸ™ (more interpersonal stuff here:

If you need to bounce any thoughts on any of the topics, just hit me up :))

How this usually works step by step:

1. You explain your situation and motivation in some detail (in writing)
2. Get to know call and potentially commitment if there’s a match
3. High-level plan and collaboration proposal
4. Decision
5. Payment
6. Detailed plan proposal
7. Regular catch-ups and intermittent support to boost your progress

All clear and set? Then let's have a chat :))


Still not sure why I'm the right one for you to help?

Check out this summary of my software engineering adventures so far:

After completing my computer science studies some years, I was drawn into the wondrous world of web APIs and web applications which I'm currently continuing to explore, helping to build the best webinar software out there (WebinarGeek).

As a writer ✍️ / visualizer 🎨 / teacher πŸ§‘β€πŸ« at I'm also spreading the message of the most human-friendly web programming technologies: Ruby and Rails. And how you get rolling with them in TDD, pair programming, CI/CD and API mode πŸš€

In my super-duper practical computer science course in Berlin, I was mainly focused on web apps, computer graphics, machine learning, and data engineering with the help of some almighty JS, Python and Java technologies.

I've started working in software teams during my first semester of studies and since then I experienced a big variety of projects, team dynamics, technologies, and tech interviews.

Hope that gives you some confidence to set up a chat with me sometime ;))

Rich is a great, knowledgeable, experienced and professional developer. We had a great exchange of ideas and he then presented an excellent roadmap to follow on my learning journey.



5 out of 5 stars

Rich accompanied me from knowing absolutely nothing about Ruby on Rails to releasing my first production app in less than 6 months. He's been a fantastic mentor and he's also just a great person to know and talk to.



5 out of 5 stars

Rich is an amazing mentor and a great person. His mentorship has been an absolute key component for me on my way towards writing better code and towards a much deeper understanding of Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
