I’m going to reach out to people in the software industry and ask to do interviews with them to write profiles on who they are and how they were coached or mentored. My goal is to bring stories of growth and coaching to a larger audience, while providing a stylistic view of these people and how they navigate the software industry.
There are many professional coaching services out there for software developers. Many of them categorize themselves as mentorship programs. You go to a site, describe yourself and your interests, and they'll pair you up with a matching mentor. Most of this is based on technology or skillsets. But it's important to ask: Are you coachable?
