5 out of 5 stars
Apart from being an expert, Fiodar is a very pleasant person to work with and someone who sees the larger picture, which is extremely important and helpful when you're not 100% sure what kind of mentorship you need. After an initial video call and a couple of messages, he already created a learning path outline which absolutely meets all the requirements I defined and most importantly some which I wasn't aware of. A fantastic mentor!
