Mentoring for the junior mentor

Mentoring is an incredibly generous gift. I was lucky enough to be involved in a fantastic and successful mentoring partnership in my last job, which was invaluable. Now I'm looking for a mentor in Sydney, I've been thinking about this a lot...

A great book that I recommend to Codebar students.

THE FULL STACKOVERFLOW DEVELOPER

I admit to being a culprit of this when I started out and I learnt a while ago that I would get more satisfaction out of learning and understanding the code I'm writing. It's a great feeling when something you made really works!
