One-off sessions are a great option if you’re looking for specific advice on a certain topic.
We can start with an initial call to get to know each other, discuss your goals, offer some initial advice, and see if we are a good fit for a long-term mentorship.
If you need a single session or want to add more meetings in a month, we can easily set up an extra one-on-one session. During these one-on-one sessions, we can use our time for different purposes. We can review a document that you've written and …
I am a pragmatic software engineer with 20+ years of experience, passionate about simplicity, operational and engineering excellence, DevOps, distributed systems and computer science. I am also a teacher and mentor at heart, which allows me to connect with software engineers, managers and tech product leaders of all levels of experience, helping them to grow, learn, and achieve their career goals.
I started coding in GW-BASIC with an 8086 when I was 13 years old (yes, I’m old, I’ve seen a lot). This initial experience made me realize that I wanted to stay around computers as much as I could. All this eventually led to college (Systems Engineering/Computer Science) which led to a long and fulfilling career as software developer engineer, teacher, and mentor.
My journey includes starting my own software engineering companies in Venezuela (and making a living of them for seven plus years), a five-year detour teaching Computer Science related courses at a notable Venezuelan university, and seven plus years at Amazon AWS as a Principal Engineer.

The experience of Demian is something that is immediately noticeable. He understands the why's and when's of software design and infrastructure in general, which is greatly appreciated, as it's easy to get lost in so many patterns, technologies, and tools. But so far, Demian has demonstrated to me that the most important thing is to know the basics and the high-level aspects of things, in which I feel he has mastery and confidence when speaking, while also showing enough humility to list the areas in which he doesn't consider himself an expert or doesn't know as much. I am very happy to have the opportunity to interact with someone like him, and I totally recommend him.

We had an introductory call and was more than enough for me to see great potential in a mentorship with Demian. Will go for it!
We will send you a quick email if Demian has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
