I have been an independent full-stack software developer for the last 15 years. Over that time I've built websites, written audio and image processing plugins, built mobile and web apps, setup servers and founded a popular open-source mobile messaging project with over 2.5k stars and ~1k forks.
Beyond my role as a developer, I've had the privilege of serving as an informal mentor, guiding individuals on their journeys to success. I was able to take my brother under my wing and helped him learn iOS development from scratch. Seven years later, he has risen to become the lead mobile engineer at NCS Group Australia, overseeing a team of over 270 professionals. Furthermore, I played a pivotal role in assisting a friend in transitioning from a medical imaging background to becoming a proficient Android developer through consistent daily guidance over several years. Today, he has secured a high-paying development position in Munich.
What I can help with:
- Programming basic - foundational concepts
- Native mobile development - iOS and Android
- Design patterns, architecture design
- Server design - building REST APIs with PHP, Node.js or Python
- Realtime communication with Firebase or XMPP
- Database concepts and design
I find software engineering endlessly fascinating which is why I've worked in so many different areas. My enthusiasm extends to teaching and sharing the valuable knowledge I've amassed over the years. Whether you're an absolute beginner taking your first steps into the world of software development or a competent mid-level engineer seeking to elevate your skills, I'm here to guide you towards the next level of expertise.
We will send you a quick email if Ben has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
