As a mentor, I get lots of possible tasks that are easy to accept and performCons:
Some smaller technical issues
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.Bjørn Furuknap has used this product for one month.
Excellent developers and platform for learning how to solve tough problemsCons:
There is an investment, but if used infrequently enough can still be profitable each month
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.Ben Cook has used this product for one year.
