Codementor is an online marketplace that finds you a developer for live programming help & freelance jobs. Connect with 10,000+ developers in real time.
Codementor has gotten me through so many difficult challenges. I still think I have my first job as a software developer in significant part because I could still show progress with Codementor's help. I appreciate the code samples afterwards I can reference, and seeing the solutions unfold in real time collaboratively.
Excellent developers and platform for learning how to solve tough problems
There is an investment, but if used infrequently enough can still be profitable each month
I started using CodeMentor thinking it would be something similar to PeoplePerHour or Upwork, but this actually works! It's quick from signup to first project, weekly payouts, and a good platform for direct communication and mentoring. I think I got my first student within 24 hours after starting to use the site and my first payment in a couple of days later.
There's some minor technical annoyances, and you need to manually make sure your students accept you starting a session (or you're mentoring for free) but other than that, I mostly have good things to say about Codementor.
As a mentor, I get lots of possible tasks that are easy to accept and perform
