I recently joined a program to further the PHP community, called PHP Mentoring. Its purpose is helping aspiring PHP programmers to improved code quality and best practices.
The declaration of intent sums it up well.
We are mentors and apprentices, teachers and students, coaches, counselers and friends. We’re not in this for profit but for the end result, a strong community of talented developers doing some fabulous work.
Shortly after signing up I was contacted by a PHP programmer from Scotland. He is building a really promising application as a solopreneur and wanted help improving his object oriented design skills and start applying formal testing.
I am really looking forward to doing this together with my new mentee and I believe I will learn a thing or two myself in the process.
