Looking for mentors with projects


(Steven Henneberry) #1

Hey everybody. Just moved from South Carolina to California. I visited noisebridge yesterday and it made me really happy to see all of that stuff there and what everyone was doing. I wanted to ask if there would be some people to help tutor me when they can in the following:

  • Basic IT (interested in getting A+ certification in a few months)
  • Programming Robots
  • MEAN stack development (learning nodejs now through udemy course)
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Java application development (currently working on project now)

I can set up a date and time for anyone who would like to help for us to meet at noisebridge. Or, alternatively, if you just tell me when you are usually at the site, I will make a note to myself to come during that time.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me.

Hey Steven,
Welcome to NoiseBridge. I think you’re best bet (at least on the MEAN stack side) would be to come to the free code camp meetups on Tuesdays (~10am - 4pm). It follows the FreeCodeCamp self study program and a couple of guys are here every week to help out with the curriculum.

Adding on to that definitely take advantage of our python classes every Monday at 7PM and our white boarding and algorithms group every Wednesday at 3PM .

Also, if you live in SF proper I highly recommend getting your California lD and establishing residency so you can enroll for free at CCSF. Lots of Noisebridgers take classes there for free and they have a wide variety of courses available.

Seconding the CCSF suggestion, I did their CS track (CS110a/b/c) and Python, MySQL, etc and it was a great deal even when you had to pay for it.

Thanks for all the advice. I’ll get to it, then.
