Reviews
  • Pros: 

    Simple and intuitive UI, great support from the mkdev team and a growing community and network

    Cons: 

    Just 1 UI glitch noticed so far, nothing serious

    Mkdev doesn't just provide a platform for students to meet mentors, it provides a whole community and network. Furthermore, as a mentor, I can take an active part in improving the platform as the team is very open to new suggestions for improvements and act on them immediately in a transparent fashion as you can even track the status of the new feature you suggested. For me, it is more of forming a network with like-minded people than just the mentorship

  • Pros: 

    I've been with mkdev as a mentor for a couple of years. I would say it's an excellent education platform for students and mentors.

    Cons: 

    The platform developers made integration with comfortable messenger, we can share code between student and mentor easily.

    It's hard to imagine a better way for education than personal communication with someone who knows a topic very well. Every student is different. We work individually with each student because every student has a different background. I really appreciate courses and books. You can find a lot of very useful information if you have enough time to explore it step by step. But if you need to face real experience or if you need to improve some specific skills or you just stuck at the start - mentorship is the best solution. The education experience allowed owners to find the rules, how to make an education programme for a student. Using this personal education program each student can find his personal way for education.

Hello, PH! I am a co-founder and CEO at mkdev.me. We are happy to share our product with you and invite you to join our community of mentors and mentees where we learn by sharing our knowledge with each other. Originaly mkdev.me was created as a landing page for a single mentor who had a strong aspiration to teach other people coding a beautiful Ruby on Rails applications. As number of mentors growed, the landing page evolved into an online marketplace where one can find and hire mentors with various programming skills and learn from their experience. Studying at mkdev.me means that you will not only learn how to code. Mentor shows their students everything they need to start programming, earn money and become a successful individual. Most of mkdev mentors, as well as mkdev.me co-founder @kshirinkin worked their way up from newbie programmers to real experts and they know that there’s no royal road to success. Even nowadays most of the programmers are self-taught and there are many reasons for that. The situation will remain the same as long as the sphere continues to grow rapidly. Our mission is to remove all the barriers so that the programmers could share their skills and best practices and develop professionally in a convenient way. We strive to have new colleagues, the ones the knowledge of whose we will be absolutely sure of. Our last year statistics tells some numbers about our students: • Median studying period is 87 days; • 70% of our students have a paid job; • 73% of students that have job found it thanks to mkdev.me (for 42% of them it was their first job as a programmer); • It took only 19 days for them to fully recoup the cost of studying with mentor. We adhere to a completely individual approach to each student, starting with the first contact and selection of a mentor, ending with a personalized study plan and follow-up support after the end of the subscription. We are doing the same for our mentors, creating comfortable and stress-free environment where our mentors can do what they love (teaching and coding) and not bother about things they they don't like (attracting clients, marketing, support, etc). It took some time to calibrate the concept and make the process of studying with mentor both convenient and effective for students as well as for mentors. And now we are ready to share our product with a large audience! To celebrate this launch we are giving this code for 20% discount on your first subscription: PRODUCTHUNT Thank you for reading! I know this was a long read, but I am very excited about this day and want to know what you guys think. We'd love to hear your feedback. Also, we are looking for new mentors, so if you feel like one, send us a note :)
Great idea. Shared with a bunch of people who always asks, “How can I learn to do…” Well, here’s the answer how.
Great service, was very helpful for me. Insane learning progress with mentor, definitely will continue my subscription

I studied at mkdev. Mkdev is the only platform where you can learn programming languages with a mentor. A mentor is an experienced developer who helps you learn a profession. The choice of professions is very large, whether it is backend or frontend. I like mkdev because there it’s possible to make an individual training plan.
