Developer mentoring services

👋 Hi, I’m Sebastien!

I have worked for 13 years in IT companies as a developer, starting as a Junior Developer and reaching the role of Engineering Manager for a big fintech company. Now I work as a freelance developer.

I’m passionate about programming, especially with frontend applications, using TypeScript and React. But what I like the best is sharing my knowledge, which is why I’m also a part-time teacher for a bootcamp in Montreal, where I give lectures about HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

A career as a developer isn’t always straightforward. Maybe you:

  • learned web programming by yourself and don’t know how to value your skills to get a first job as a developer?
  • just finished a web dev training or bootcamp to change career, and don’t know what to learn next?
  • are doing well at your developer job, but would like to learn new skills to level up?

If you are in one of these situations and feel a bit stuck, maybe what you need is a mentor. The service I am offering here is to become your mentor on the long-term, not for a single session.

Let me present you what I’m offering in detail… 👇👇👇

How does it work?

After purchasing a subscription, you’ll receive a short form to fill so I can know more about you and how we can communicate (promise, it won’t take you more than a few minutes). We’ll then decide together a good moment for our first call.

☎️ Calls

A video call usually is the best way for me to help you. We’ll use Zoom or Google Meet, and the only rule for a call is that we’ll talk about anything you want. Tell me what you need from me and I’ll help you the best I can (see next section What can I help you with?).

The ✨ Basic ✨ plan includes one 30-minute call per month, the ✨✨ Premium ✨✨ includes two, and the ✨✨✨ Professional ✨✨✨ four calls.

💬 Q&A by chat

Using the tool you prefer (Slack, WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegram…), you’ll be able to ask me any question you want. Wether it’s my advice about a job offer, some resources about a specific topic, or some guidance to start a new side project.

All plans come with unlimited Q&A by chat. I’ll make everything I can to always answer in less than 24 hours.

🔍 Reviews

Additionally to calls, I can spend some time reviewing your resume, your portfolio (code or website) or any source code. After my review, I’ll send you a written report, that we can then discuss in one of our calls.

The ✨✨ Premium ✨✨ plans includes one review per month (limited to 1 hr of work), and the ✨✨✨ Professional ✨✨✨ two reviews (or 2 hrs total).

What can I help you with?

🧠 Learn new frontend skills

Are you wondering what you should learn next get better at frontend development? Or are you looking for some learning resources?

I have a lot of experience with frontend using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, React and Next.js. I can help you find the right path to learn or reinforce skills with these technologies.

🧑‍💼 Prepare for job interviews

Are you expecting a coding challenge during a job interview? I can help you prepare for it, and even have a mock interview if you want to.

📄 Review your resume or portfolio

Your resume and your portfolio are the first things any recruiter will look at. I can help you improve them to put all chances on your side.

🐞 Review or debug a project of yours

The best way to get better at programming is to get review from other developers. I can review a project of yours or help you solve a bug in it.

🙋‍♂️ Anything else?

If there is anything you can think I can help you with that is not part of this list, I’ll do the best I can to help you with it 😊.

Frequently asked questions

How can I know more about you?

My personal website is the best place to find information about me, including links to my social media accounts, and the blog posts and books I wrote.

Why a monthly subscription?

The help I provide is for the long term, not for a single term. If I recommend you resources, the point of my service is also to see with you if these resources helped you, and what the next steps can be. This is why you can purchase a subscription, but you can cancel it anytime you want.

When does my subscription start?

Right after you purchased it! It will be valid for one month (or the frequency you selected), and will be renewed automatically unless you cancel it.

It’s telling me there is no more spot left…

To maintain a good quality of service, I need to limit the number of available spots each month. Maybe come in a couple of weeks and new spots will be available 😉

I don’t know anything about programming yet, can you help?

Yes, but not by teaching you programming. I’ll help you by recommending you resources to start with programming. Depending on what you are looking for, I’ll recommend online resources, trainings, bootcamps…

What if I’m not satisfied by the service?

You can cancel your subscription anytime you want so the monthly subscription isn’t renewed. Plus, if you change your mind in the first 7 days of your subscription, you can ask me for a refund, no question asked.

I’m in for several months, can I pay less?

Yes! Just choose another frequency (3 or 6 months) to get lower prices.

I need more information before purchasing a subscription…

Just send me an email at, and I’ll answer questions you have about the service I’m offering.
