What is this mentoring program, you ask? It’s the mentoring program for budding programmers or those who simply want to do stuff in town. So if you live near me (and you know if you do), then please take a gander at this particular program. All meetings will be at my house. So I’ll make sure it’s all fun and fresh. And also, this is a chance to follow your dreams.
