Our mentors are the human element behind Exercism, providing empathetic feedback on learners' solutions
I am a software engineer by training, build and run software teams in practice, and am a longtime fan and user of Exercism!
After studying English, I took the road less traveled, which somehow led me to become a developer. Perhaps because code can be poetry and applications are the built on creativity, logic, and language, I've continued exploring and haven't looked back.
I write software for music and science education, mostly in Clojure but I also enjoy using C, Python and Bash. As a 'professional beginner', my focus is on making small programs that are easy to understand and modify if desired, never considering a topic fully learned until I can confidently explain it to someone else.
I enjoy making things work elegantly more than just making them work and I consider myself a very honest and straightforward person. I value empathy and rational thinking. I enjoy learning about and debating ethics and philosophy. What I lack in formal education in these fields I make up for in curiosity and open-mindedness. I'm currently looking to get started with competitive programming and using Exercism to practice. I hope to accelerate people's progression through the Elixir track, as there is currently a huge lack in mentors and I'm sure it's frustrating people to wait many days for their code to be reviewed (although it does prepare us well for the realities of business :P).
I've been using C# for personal projects in Unity for a little over a year and love the balance it strikes between readiblity and functionality.
I have been programming in Go for several years both professionally and for hobby projects. I've come to love the simplicity and expressiveness of the language, as well as the wonderful community of people that has grown around it.
Software Developer at http://bunsan.io/ also I am a gamer currently playing SC2 and Clash Royale. I love beer, anime, manga, music my kids and my wife
I'm a Ruby on Rails developer and I fell in love with Ruby many years ago, probably because it is made for developer happiness and productivity. Happy to help you learning this nice language!
It didn't take long for rust to become my favorite language, and I want to help others learn it, and love it like I do! I've been coding in rust since 2013, and it's been amazing seeing the language change and evolve over time, and become better and better.
Enjoy learning and teaching topics in functional programming and mathematics as it relates to distributed systems, category theory, graph theory, and computer science at large.
I started using elixir around 2016 and we have been using it in our company since 2017. I love the language for how well it translates what I want to do into code.
I've been an avid Elixir user for over 2 years. It is the language I want to be using professionally. Everyone I know knows about my passion for Elixir, which is why they call me Alexir
I'm a Java guy during the days, Elixir and Rust by night, eager share ideas and take other's critics because there is no wrong question.
I'm a backend developer currently working with Elixir (and Ruby at times!). I've always been a huge fan of functional programming and the elegant syntax, performance and knack for distributed systems has made it my favorite language.
I love Go and the Go community. I am a software engineer with 10 years experience.
I'm a C++ and Python developer and am in the process of learning Elxir. I always feel that teaching is a great way to learn.
Love Ruby language and want to help others in learning it.
CTO at Galleon.PH . Building a modern tech team, a place where good, smart, empowered people work.
Came for Java, stayed for Kotlin. You can't see it in the picture, but I have fully functional arms and legs.
I like clear and laconic code
Someone wise said that the best way to learn something is to tech that, so here I am :). I don't write on Go for a long time but I already know enough to share some useful info and help newbies. Happy to help!
My first professional programming was using perl, and I'm still going! Host of LA Perl Meetup. Also user of python, shell, C, ruby, haskell, rust, go, ...
I enjoy the simplicity of Python.
I write mostly C# professionally, but I have a passion for functional programming and lately Rust. I look forward to helping you anyway I can!
I enjoy writting code, nowadays mostly ES6
I love providing users with delightful UX. I love automating things. I hate computers.
Climbing coder. Working with JS professionally for both web and desktop applications for 8+ years.
I am using C and C++ for some years. C is more friendly when compile to assembly.
I love Lua for its simplicity and effectivness. I write Lua professionally.
I have been programming in Python for the last 7 years and teaching it to beginners for the last 4. I don't claim to know much, but I hope to be a useful person to bounce ideas off of. Thanks for reading!
