I was lining up for lunch at a conference, when a familiar face said hi. I had helped with her Django application at a coding workshop a few months earlier.
She had just started her first full-time job as a developer. And it’s a job at a fantastic company too.
What I felt when she said those words… I’m still not over it. Honestly, I might never get over it. To have played a very small part in her developer journey means the world to me.
If you're thinking about mentoring at coding workshops, please sign up. Workshops are always looking for mentors.
You can't imagine how much impact you will have.
