I had the pleasure of studying under James for over six months, during a particularly crucial stage in my development as a software engineer. He was an integral part of my transition from graduating to entering the workforce as a full-stack engineer. His knowledge of the software development life cycle, system architecture and implementation best practices, the nuances of discerning business vs application logic, and common workflows (Git, Agile, etc.) is second to none. That is a very much non-exhaustive list :-) Without the tutelage of James, I feel confident I would be finding much less success in my career. A commonly shared sentiment is that technical skills can be taught to anyone with passion and drive, but teaching interpersonal skills is much harder to achieve. James does both with masterful skill, providing a wealth of industry knowledge, and giving his mentees a top-class example to emulate in both professionalism and humility. James always went above and beyond for me, meeting with me outside of our scheduled hours when needed, taking time out of his day to work through blockers with me or do review code, and was always prompt to respond to my messages, all of this while navigating the difficulties of operating in different time zones from one another. Whether you are trying to break into the tech industry, elevate your existing career to the next level, or want to obtain a deeper understanding of programming and software development from start to finish, James is the mentor for you.

James is an exceptional mentor who provided me with guidance and support in crafting effective job search strategies and in developing a comprehensive plan for my job search. He also assisted me in tailoring my resume and cover letter for specific job applications. I am grateful for his valuable insights into DevOps and cloud architect roles. He is a dedicated mentor and is available when the need arises. I wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone seeking a mentor because he is not only knowledgeable and experienced but is also genuinely invested in the success of their mentees.
